Self guided tour of this lovely chateau including a sit down wine tasting was well worth the time.
The time spent reading the available posters and the very thoughtful wine tasting led by extremely patient staff was really worth it.

Very impressed with the stunning winery and beautiful gardens BUT we were extremely disappointed with the wine tasting experience. We (a couple) decided to try the wine tasting and we were told it was $10. If we decided to purchase any wine the $10 would not be charged. It was a sit at table tasting. The staff were friendly but it took forever to get through our wine tasting as the staff were also serving other wine tasting customers plus serving at the counter. The wines were good so decided to purchase a bottle for $25. But it was going to cost us $35 due to the fact that it was $10 each to taste. ($20 for a couple). So we purchased 2 bottles for $50. Due to taking so long to finish the tasting, we missed out on visiting other wineries in the Barossa Valley before they shut for the day. If only I had read some of the other negative reviews, we would not have bothered to do the wine tasting. It is highly recommended to see the stunning historic buildings, gardens and beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards and Barossa ranges. BUT not recommending the wine tasting.

My friend was visiting from Queensland and wanted to do wine tasting, we didn't book online but they had a spot and was very welcoming. The lady that assisted us in our wine tasting ( shout out to Glazia!) was very cheerful, polite, and super knowledgable. We had an awesome experience. The place is also STUNNING!! My friend said the wine tasting experience (and exploring around the place) was the highlight of her South Australia trip!

We are very consistent consumers of the Grand Barossa Riesling. A beautiful property but a disappointing experience. While lovely wine, the service was extremely lacklustre & lacking any sort of energy & enthusiasm. The cost of tasting was $20 each and like most wineries the cost didn’t come off your end wine purchase. As a result we left disappointed and empty handed. The experience wasn’t worth the $20. While we’ll continue to purchase the wine we won’t at cellar door prices nor would we recommend anyone doing the tasting experience. Visit the property to ‘tick the box’ as it really is a lovely property and the birthplace of the Barossa wine industry….but that’s it.

We walked to Chateau Tanunda today from our accommodation in the hope of a tasting then a bottle of wine and a platter in the beautiful sunshine. When we walked in the man behind the counter looked up and then totally ignored us. A few seconds later some other people walked in and past us and he proceeded to serve them! Finally he came over to us and I asked if we could do the $10 tasting. He said they were far too busy to do tastings (even though it was a Monday and very quiet). I then asked if we could order a glass of wine. He said that we could but then walked away to serve someone else. We were totally taken aback and ended up leaving a few minutes later when he didn’t return. We had read such great reviews for this winery but will not be returning and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. So disappointing!

Dear lmalouf, Unfortunately we had a very large group booking that day and technically we are closed to private tastings. However, we will always try and accommodate and do our best but, without an appointment especially on a busy day we may not be able to always accommodate everyone. To avoid disappointment it is best to book online, call or send us an email. We are looking forward to welcoming you again in the future Cheers, Chateau Tanunda Team

While we didn’t partake in a wine tasting it was still well with the visit

It is one of the oldest and definitely most impressive wineries in the valley.

It is steeped in history and a walk through is interesting and offers some great photo opportunities

I would definitely recommend it as a stop on your trip ….

Went here to do a wine tasting.

We were treated to a large selection of wines and ended up buying quite a few.

The architecture of the building was truly magnificent and worth saving by the current owner.
