  • Barossa & Light Cab Service recommend Chateau Tanunda often to clients when on wine tour, due to the history of the Chateau, and that the staff at the cellar door are very knowledgeable. Wine tasting here is free, and the atmosphere is very relaxed, friendly and warm. This is a beautiful heritage vineyard and a must see whilst you are in the Barossa. Croquet at Chateau Tanunda is also a lot of fun, and is children & family friendly, and is played on the beautiful grounds. Its also very well priced at $15 per hour. And Chateau Tanunda is open daily.
  • We had an amazing wine tasting here with Yu. She did a great job of walking us through a massive number of wines, all were great. It was a lovely place to start a day of wine tasting.
  • An absolute must see destination. Best cellar door in Barossa! They offer a free wine tasting with a very knowledgable staff. I can only imagine what Penfolds looked like in it's heyday because Chateau Tanunda is more Penfolds than Penfolds. Historic building and sites are cherished by the owner and his staff. Preserved for todays wine lovers to see what artisan winemaking was like and remains to this day. Perfect!!!
  • Visited your winery with cousins from America for wine tasting and was completely afronted with the rudeness of one of the staff member on Sunday at 3. When an international visitor asked, "why is white wine tasted before red?" He rudely commented, "how uncultured are you? Shall I get out the sausage rolls and hotdogs next?" What a disappointment for Barossa's oldest winery and a South Australian tourist destination.
  • Larry!! You were absolutely amazing. Thank you for a perfect afternoon
