Introduction to the Eden Valley Appellation

This region has derived its name from the small town in the Eden Valley called Garden of Grapes and Gums.

The Eden Valley wine region is found to be extending from Truro on the northern side to just south of Springton on the southern side.

This region has two other important wine regions as its borders which are namely Barossa Valley wine region on the western side and Adelaide Hills wine region on the southern side.

This premium wine region received its appellation as a GI (Geographical Indication) during the year 1997.

Today, this wine region is found to be represented by a minimum of 36 wineries. This region is having a sub-region called High Eden.

Geography and Climate of Eden Valley Wine Region

As mentioned earlier, this region is found to be dotted with the rolling hills of Barossa and these are known to provide the altitude to the vineyards located in this region.

With regards to viticulture, these hills are playing a major role by providing the much-needed altitude, the most important factor for shaping the wine styles.

I would say that the best places for vine cultivation are found on the moderate slopes that are well exposed to sunlight.

These can be found at the elevations of 1200 to 1640 feet.

We could say that these heights are making the growing conditions cooler in Eden Valley wine region when compared to those in Barossa wine region thus giving the Eden Valley wines the prominent flavour concentration.

The average annual rainfall received by the Eden Valley is found to be 716.2 millimetres. This is again important in supporting the growth of vine grapes here.

When it comes to the soil, we can see a wide range of soils in this wine region.

More predominant soil types that can be found in this region are weathered rocks and gravels in the clay.
