Château Tanunda, birthplace of the Barossa, was established in 1890 and is the site of some of the Valley’s first vines planted as well as its first winery. The majestic bluestone winery and vineyards is a living testament to the colourful history and pioneering spirit of Australia’s most famous wine region.

It is Australia’s largest and oldest Château and a truely unforgettable Barossa wedding venue.

Château Tanunda was built on the highest point of the valley floor, giving spectacular views of vineyards, the rolling Barossa Ranges and native Australian landscape. The immaculately maintained gardens including towering palm trees, wisteria walkways and lush green lawns, create the perfect back-drop for ceremonies and photography, and an exceptional Barossa wedding venue.

The ambiance inside the Château creates the perfect mood for your wedding reception.  Cast pillars from Glasgow highlighted with down lights, high-beamed ceilings perfect for overhead lighting and décor, original jarrah floor boards, and gorgeous window frames streaming natural light into the rooms. The Château also has many versatile spaces for photography including the original winery with floor-to-ceiling barrel stacks for a romantic winery back-drop. 

Each wedding reception at Château Tanunda enjoys exclusive use of the Château function areas for the evening. Reception rooms include the Grand Ballroom (up to 350 guests seated with a dance floor) and the Long Room (up to 80 guests seated), or you could even consider a cocktail wedding on our beautiful Sunken Garden or Barossa Ranges Terrace.
