The Barossa Valley is the most famous of Australia's wine producing regions, appreciated the world over for the full-throttle shiraz made possible by hte hot, arid climate. The shiraz vines in the Barossa are some of the oldest in the world, some topping a century and a half in age. Marquis is proud to be the exclusive importer for several Barossa producers in BC, including the renowned Rockford, whose large barrels are pictured above.
