Sons of Eden source their grapes from some of the world’s oldest vines using guarded traditions. There are two sub-regions which are Eden valley and Barossa valley. Barossa valley has cool nights, warm days, and sunshine. Vines in this area help produce some of the best red wines with restrained concentration and finesse.
