then we are telling you about the
CHATEAU TANUNDA

The Château was built in the late 1880‘s and is home to some of the earliest planting of vines in the Barossa Valley: dating back to the 1840‘s!

Château Tanunda is also Australia’s largest and oldest wine Chateau and a designated monument in the State Heritage Register.

It was during a morning bike ride in 1998 that John Geber saw “it” the first time.  “It” was Château Tanunda in Australia’s Barossa Valley, a majestic Bavarian-style Château and in its prime the largest winery in the Southern Hemisphere.  He bought it the very next day.  We like in a short video clip introduce you to the owner of this beautiful place, his family and it’s Sunken Garden
