Tanunda - Cities, Towns and Localities

Ancient Grape Vines - Barossa Valley

Tanunda is the main administrative and business centre within the Barossa Valley. The original village here was named Langmeil and was established by German settlers in 1843. As the town grew it incorporated other villages and eventually became known as Tanunda an aboriginal word that means ‘waterhole’.

Today the township has a population in excess of 3500 people and is graced by many fine Lutheran and Baptist churches. Being located centrally within the Barossa there is a myriad of wineries surrounding the town to visit that offer tastings from their cellar doors.

The town has managed to preserve its German heritage and today you can purchase a bewildering assortment of German foodstuffs from the town.

Barossa Small Winemakers Centre
• The Barossa Small Winemakers Centre is a showcase for wines of the Barossa’s small independent winemakers. Rare and distinctive wines are sold here and give visitors to the Chateau access to wines that are rarely found elsewhere. The centre is housed in the cellar door sales area at historic Chateau Tanunda, just a few minutes walk from Tanunda, in the heart of the Barossa Valley - one of the World’s premier wine regions.
Charles Melton Wines
Winemaker Charles Melton and his partner Virginia Weckert have specialised in the production of limited release, premium red wines made from Barossa grapes since 1984. It was in the mid 1980’s that Charlie and a small band of Barossa winemakers turned their winemaking efforts to what was then considered a couple of unfashionable varieties, Shiraz and Grenache.
Chateau Dorrien Winery Tourism Centre
• Over the years Chateau Dorrien wines have become famous for their quality and consistency. Founded in 1913 by the Seppelt family the Dorrien winery is one of the Barossa Valley’s historic landmarks. The building once held over 90 wine fermentation vats, which were predominantly used for storage of their wines.
Langmeil Winery
• Visitors to the winery today are able to taste a range of premium wines within the backdrop of historic buildings and the 1840’s vineyard. Recent vintages have resulted in the processing of approximately 750 tonnes of grapes each year. Much of the processing at present is on behalf of smaller wineries without crushing facilities. Currently Langmeil is producing over 12,000 cases of wine annually. As is the current trend in the industry, premium red wines make up over 80 per cent of its processing.
Peter Lehmann Wines
• Cellar Door is situated in Tanunda on the banks of the North Para River. It is set amongst tall red gums and sweeping lawns and colourful displays of annuals and roses. Picnic tables are scattered across the lawns inviting customers to take their time and enjoy the pleasant surroundings, or one of our local produce platters, available from the cellar door.
Richmond Grove
• The winery was established in 1897 and over the past century has undergone many changes, yet it has always maintained its grandeur and prominence in producing wines of exceptional quality. At Richmond Grove we believe that to make the best wine, the grapes must be selected from the regions most suited to that particular grape variety. For this reason we source our grapes from across Australia’s most renowned wine making districts to create a portfolio of wines that showcase the distinctive characters of geographical regions within Australia.
Rockford Winery
• Ph: 08 8563 2720
• High quality traditional wines made from some of the best old Barossa vineyards. The winery and cellar door sales are part of a paved courtyard surrounded by stone buildings dating back to the early settlement of Krondorf.
St Hallett Wines
• As grape growers and winemakers in the Barossa for over 50 years St Hallett is committed to making wines of flavour, softness and drink ability that speak of their origin and belief that wine is an integral part of the celebration of life.
The Keg Factory
• Ph: 08 8563 3012 • Email
• Step back in time and see the authentic age old craft of keg making. The Coopers at The Keg Factory produce individual hand-crafted port kegs using American and French Oak already possessing the character and maturity of old port, sherry, brandy or whiskey barrels, which bring the magic of age and oak to your port. Round, oval, vat shape, two to twenty litres capacity. Wine Racks are all made to individual design plus Cask Garden Tubs.
