The Chateau Tanunda- First Winery of Barossa Valley

The Chateau Tanunda was set up in 1890 and had some of the first vines planted in the Barossa Valley and the first winery of the region. The historic bluestone winery and its vineyards reflect the rich history and spirit of one of Australia’s best wine regions. The Château is privately owned by the Geber family, who continue a tradition of fine winemaking that dates back to around 130 years.

The Everest Shiraz, The Everest Old Vine Grenache, 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz, etc. are some of their best award-winning wines.

Vineyards and Their Grapes

John Geber purchased the estate in 1998, and since then, he and his family have put in immense work to maintain the historic winemaking here. They get their grapes from more than 350 acres of vineyards located in Eden Valley, Vine Vale, Tanunda, and Bethany. The diversity of terroirs and favorable climatic conditions allow the winery to make refined wines using high-quality fruity grapes. Some of their vineyards are around 100 to 150 years old. The main grape varieties grown here are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvedre, Semillon, Riesling, and Chardonnay used to make their world-famous red, white, rose, and sparkling wines.

Methods for crafting Finest Wines

In the cellar of the winery, traditional methods are combined with modern innovative technology to craft the finest Barossa wines. Their limited release wines are made with minimal intervention that allows them to retain a natural fruity taste and elegant aroma. The wines are allowed to age in American and French oak barrels to reach the desired quality. The winery is renowned for regularly making outstanding, high-quality wines.
