Chateau Tanunda An icon of the Barossa Valley dating back to the 1870′s and the decimation of Europe’s vineyards by the phylloxera plague, Château Tanunda was the largest winery in the Southern Hemisphere. It was the heart of Barossa winemaking, not only making wine but integral in educating winemakers and enologists. Having been placed on the Register of State Heritage Places in 1994, one would assume that the early days of making rich, delectable wines had continued on for years; but that is not the case. Château Tanunda had been abandoned by its owners in the 1990′s leaving the property a mere shell of what it once had been. The property was purchased by John Geber in 1998 and he promptly decided to restore the property to its iconic status along with bringing Bourne on board as the Chief Winemaker.
