Château Tanunda

South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

This is one of the most historically significant winery buildings in the Barossa Valley, built from bluestone quarried in the late 1880s and restored by the Geber family some 120 years later. Château Tanunda owns almost 100ha of vineyards in Bethany, Eden Valley, Tanunda and Vine Vale, including an impressive collection of old vines aged 50–150 years old. Additional fruit is sourced from a group of 30 growers covering the panoply of Barossa districts. The premium wines are typically hand picked, basket pressed and neither fined nor filtered. The focus here is on old-vine wines, as well as single-district and single-vineyard wines under the Terroirs of the Barossa and The Château labels respectively. A second cellar door has opened in the Rocks, Sydney. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Château Tanunda, Birth place of the Barossa, was established in 1890 and is the site of some of the Valley’s first vines planted as well as its first winery. The Château is privately owned by the Geber family who are proud custodians of the Chateau’s 130th year winemaking tradition. Its 130 years of winemaking heritage makes it the only internationally-recognised winemaking Château in Australia, a champion of Barossa Old Vine Expressions and is regularly rated amongst the top wine producers in the country.

We offer a range of bookable wine experiences to enhance the visitation experience to the Chateau. For visitor convenience, these are all available to book online prior to their visit.
