Chateau Tanunda is one of the best known and best loved estates in the Barossa Valley, as well as one of the oldest. Vines were first planted here in 1845 and a winery was first established three years later. The iconic blue stone Chateau itself was built in 1890, and has been one of the Valley’s most recognised landmarks ever since.
The wines are classic Barossa: rich, ripe, concentrated and intense. Tanunda owns over 100ha of vines across the Bethany, Eden Valley, Tanunda and Vine Vale sub-regions and also buys fruit from 30 growers, including some of the descendants of the Barossa’s original settlers. All fruit is hand-picked and the grapes basket-pressed. The wines are neither filtered nor fined.
Sport fans should take note. The Chateau has an international standard croquet lawn and a cricket pitch that hosts the annual Masters games that traditionally feature some of the legends of Test Cricket.
