There can be few finer experiences during an Adelaide summer than standing barefoot on a perfectly manicured piece of lush green grass, award-winning shiraz in hand, as you expertly contemplate your next ‘croquet.’
Add blue sky, more impeccable wine and an estate worthy of the next Harry Potter, and you’ve described one of several cellar door experiences available to you at this recently turned 130-year-old winery, in the heart of Australia’s most famous wine region.
While the wine itself remains world-class, since its extensive renovation in 2018, Chateau Tanunda has upped its visitor game, and now offers a range of experiences that aren’t just for your overseas relatives. From a private tour of the chateau that includes a tasting of their ‘Heritage’ and ‘Chateau’ ranges to the bespoke ‘Beyond the Velvet Rope’ option, which takes you deep into the vines themselves, each gives you access to the wine, and are led by an expert from the estate trained in viticulture who will be happy to share their encyclopedic knowledge of the art of winemaking with you.
A favourite of recent visitors has been the newly added ‘Private Tour & Taste,’ the perfect way to introduce yourself to the 130 year history of this grand estate in a socially-distanced way.
To taste wine from 150-year-old vineyards, including the world-renowned Everest collection, book an Old Vine Expressions Tasting Experience and savour some of the regions best. You won’t be disappointed.
In addition to touring the winery and soaking up the incredible sense of history, you can purchase any of the family-owned and run Chateau’s award-winning wines.
As recently as last month, two of the their premium shiraz’s took out gong’s at the Global Syrah Masters awards, placing them amongst the best in the world. Earlier in 2020 Chief Winemaker Neville Rowe was also named in the top 100 Master Winemakers by Drinks Business Magazine, who also organize the Global Masters Series.
“This is the who’s who of Shiraz from around the world, a tough competition judged by some of the most highly trained palates in the world. We are incredibly proud of the result,” said Chateau Tanunda Managing director Michelle Geber.
“Our focus is on fine winemaking and Barossa Old Vines, which has proven time and time again to produce wines at the absolute pinnacle when it comes to quality.”
Chateau Tanunda is offering 20% per cent off the price of any of their winery experiences until 30 January 2021 when you book online using the code ‘GLAM2020’
