Cellar Door Manager
Brigitte Baumgartner, has been part of the Château Tanunda team since 2006. Originally from Switzerland, she has called the Barossa home for over 30 years.
Brigitte first joined Château Tanunda as a member of the cellar door team in sales. After great success and much adoration from the Château Tanunda visitors, she was promoted to Cellar Door Manager in 2007. Brigitte leads a team of experienced and passionate cellar door staff which is recognised amongst the top cellar door experiences and 'Things To Do" in the Barossa Valley on Trip Advisor and regularly receives awards of excellence for their service.
"I thoroughly enjoy my time at Château Tanunda for several reasons: working everyday as part of an amazing Barossa Icon with great history, the friendly atmosphere, the delicious wines and my general passion for providing guests with a unique and memorable experience. I gain great satisfaction in welcoming new guests or regular visitors from all over the world. Thanks to my Swiss background, German speakers also enjoy the fact that I can deliver a structured wine tasting in their mother language. I love seeing familiar faces return to visit, some after a few years, some only after a few days.
For those of you whom have never experienced the Château Tanunda experience, take the time to come and visit to say hello to me and our friendly staff. We love providing visitors with a fantastic wine tasting experience or taking people on a tour of the Chateau. I look forward to welcoming you soon."
