  • This was the perfect first stop of our wine tasting tour in the Barossa. It’s a beautiful, well maintained building with a huge, delicious selection of wines. The highlight of our visit to the Chateau, and the entire day in fact, was Andrew who led the tasting. He’s friendly, knowledgeable, funny and all around enjoyable to be around. Definitely a must!
