Château Tanunda, birthplace of the Barossa, was established in 1890 and is the site of some of the Valley’s first vines planted as well as its first winery. The majestic bluestone winery and vineyards is a living testament to the colourful history and pioneering spirit of Australia’s most famous wine region.
For the past two decades, John Geber and his family have put their heart, soul and business expertise into breathing new life into this historic icon of Australian winemaking. In 2016, John’s daughter Michelle took up the role of Managing Director, ensuring the family legacy continues into the next generation. In 2020, the Château celebrated its 130th anniversary proudly ranked amongst the top 20 wineries in Australia, a Red Five Star Winery and amongst the top Château in the world.
Château Tanunda is the only internationally-recognised winemaking Château in Australia, a champion of Barossa Old Vine Expressions and is regularly rated amongst the top wine producers in the country. This extraordinary venue provides the most incredible backdrop to the inaugural Barossa Polo event. The private cricket field to the south of the site will host the polo event activity.
