The Barossa prides itself on its cuisine as well as its wine, so you'll find plenty of places of note to eat, many of them serving traditional German food. A hot spot for lunch or dinner is Vintners Bar & Grill, Nuriootpa Road, Angaston (tel. 08/8564 2488); the wine list is six pages long! Try the slow-cooked veal shank with Shiraz glaze. Main courses cost A$32 to A$38. It's open for lunch daily and Monday through Saturday for dinner. Another choice is Salters, Saltram Winery, Nuriootpa Road, Angaston (tel. 08/8561 0200); local produce is the specialty, with main courses such as slow-roasted baby pork, milk-fed lamb, and crisp-based pizzas. Main courses are A$22 to A$29. It's open daily for lunch.

Perhaps the best German-style bakery in the valley is the Lyndoch Bakery, on the Barossa Highway, Lyndoch (tel. 08/8524 4422). One place to not miss is celebrity foodie and chef Maggie Beer's Farm Shop on Pheasant Farm Road, Tanunda (tel. 08/8562 4477), where you can sample some of the extensive range of Maggie Beer Foods, Barossa Farm Produce, and both Pheasant Farm and Beer Bros wines, or just stock up on picnic fare.
