About Chateau Tanunda Winery

Chateau Tanunda is so named after the building that centrally occupies the property, which itself is regarded as Australia's largest Chateau (and dates back to 1890) and is one of the most historic in the Barossa Valley. The wine side of the business is also steeped in history, with a whole slew of famous winemakers having worked at the Chateau over the years, including: - Professor Soebels – the first qualified oenologist in Australia - Bill Seppelt - Jack Mann - Max Schubert - Grant Burge - Geoff Merrill More recently the Chateau fell into something of a state of disrepair, until the Geber family took over and revitalised both the building and the wine business. This revival was topped off with the completion, in 2006, of a modern basket press winery. Chateau Tanunda Vineyards The first recorded vines in the Barossa Valley were those planted by Auguste Fiedler in 1843 on the foothill of the Chateau Tanunda estate. Since then the Chateau Tanunda plantings have expanded to over 100 hectares in the Vine Vale, Bethany, Tanunda and Eden Valley subregions. The fruit off this plantings is then coupled with fruit from growers throughout the valley to craft what is a quite large range of traditional Barossan wines. Chateau Tanunda Winemaking Proudly honouring the traditional winemaking methods, the winemaking here favours hand picking, open fermenters and small batch winemaking, utilising a fabulous revivalist basket press that is the envy of many Barossan winemakers. Chateau Tanunda Wine Styles Whilst the range is utterly Barossan in it's bias, it is also a broad one, spanning many varieties and styles. These include crisp unoaked whites like Riesling, Pinot Grigio and a Sem/Sauv Blanc alongside more traditional Barossan styles such as lightly oaked Semillon, Grenache Rose, Grenache, Cabernet Merlot, a GSM and some classic full bodied Shiraz and Cabernet. There is also a cheeky Barossan Pinot Noir for good measure!
