The definitive guide to Australian Wines
This is one of the most historically significant winery buildings in the Barossa Valley, built from bluestone quarried at nearby Bethany in the late 1880s. It has been restored by John Geber and family, and a new small batch basket press has been installed. Chateau Tanunda owns almost 100ha of vineyards in Bethany, Eden Valley,Tanunda and Vine Vale, with additional fruit sourced from a group of 30 growers covering the panoply of Barossa districts. The wines are made from hand-picked grapes, basket-pressed, and are neither fined nor filtered. There is an emphasis on single vineyard and single district wines under the Terroirs of the Barossa label. The grand building houses the cellar door and the Barossa Small Winemakers Centre, offering wines from boutique winemakers. Exports to all major markets have been a major reason for the increase in production from 50 000 to 130 000 dozen, success due to the unrelenting, market-oriented approach of John Geber.
