  • I was in awe from first view of this beautiful chateau, it is amazing to think the amount of money this would have cost to build in the 1800's and that for many years it was left derelict. Chateau Tan...  more »

  • Loved our visit to the Chateau. We discovered JB Wines and their deliciuos locally grown Zinfandel. If you like Californian Zyn, you got to try it.
  • So much history here. Worth the trip.
  • Lovely grounds but it was a poor experience as the staff had no interest in serving us. Would not recommend.
  • Brigitte, Megan & Andrew all have been hosting my clients extremely well, great place and under rated, this is a "MUST DO", book a wine tour or book with them direct for the Premium Wine Tastings, I recommend a tour so you do not fear of being over the limit. The Gardens are amazing and the history of the Chateau also one of S.A's places to visit.
  • Excellent service from Thomas was busy serving others as well as our group and was apologetic yet very professional knew his brand knew his product excellent service took the time to get into a conversation to know us as we are from melbourne highly recommend this place 👌
