The two settlements pre-datimg Tanunda are Bethany (1842) and Langmeil (1843).

Goat Square – still a Barossa Valley meeting place

Goat Square was a meeting place for bartering goods including livestock. It was a short distance away from the row of ‘primitive’ wineries that opened along Langmeil Road. No doubt they traded wine.

Shiraz was one of the early varieties planted and appropriately is the flagship wine of Goat Square Vignerons. Goat Square also makes Grenache and a Shiraz Grenache Mataro.
