Chateau Tanunda Cellar Door


Hours: 10:00-5:00pm

Join us for a daily tour of historic Chateau Tanunda- the site of some of the earliest vines planted in the Barossa as well as its first winery in the 1840s

Australia’s largest and oldest château.

A designated monument in Australia’s Register of State Heritage Places.

Chateau Tanunda is the Barossa - see for yourself on our daily Chateau Tour.

This majestic bluestone winery and estate is testament to the history and pioneering spirit of Australia's pre-eminent wine region.

Chateau Tanunda's origins can be traced back to the 1860s and the decimation of European vineyards by phylloxera. Sensing opportunity in European adversity, the founders of Chateau Tanunda built a Bavarian-style chateau dedicated to the production of high quality wines.

This tradition of fine wine making lives on through the passion of Geber family. Since taking ownership of The Chateau in 1988, the Gebers have restored the buildings and the wines to the highest standard, winning hundreds of awards locally and internationally for some of the best Shiraz, Grenache, Semillon and Riesling that Australia has to offer.

A visit to the Barossa would not be complete without a visit to the iconic barrel hall cellar door where you can taste our wines, take a tour, enjoy a cheese platter or a game of croquet.

A five star rated winery in the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, one of only twelve wineries selected to represent Australia at the G20 summit in 2014, and a previous winner of the International Shiraz Trophy and Single Estate Red Wine Trophy at the IWSC in London.

Huon Hooke-The rebirth of Chateau Tanunda is one of the most remarkable stories of the Australian wine industry

James Halliday AM- Chateau Tanunda is one of the most historically significant winery buildings in the Barossa Valley. An outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW - One of the most beautiful estates in the Barossa. Quite literally a chateau, Chateau Tanunda produces a wide range of labels and price points. Clean, pure, unpretentious and exquisitely made, these are must-buys for a true taste of the Barossa.
