  • Has to be one of my favorite places in South Australia. There is nothing wrong about this place. They have a gazillion wine tasting options, a beautiful estate and great great servicing. What I loved the most about this place was how well kept everything was and what amazing attention to detail was provided with every single glass of wine we were tasting. We were four folks who went for my farewell trip here, and it’s one of the top places I’d recommend for events like this.
  • 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!
  • Great. Recommend the premium wine tasting "flight" followed by one of the cheese platters.
  • Beautiful property, great wines, and fantastic service from Andrew on NYE 31st - this was a great start to an amazing day in the Barossa!
  • Good wine. We received excellent and very knowledgeable help.
