About the Sydney Cellar Door

Château Tanunda is thrilled to bring the Barossa to Sydney permanently.

Located in the unique heritage precinct of 'The Rocks' in Sydney, Château Tanunda's private wine tasting room is housed in an atmospheric 1860s sandstone original building. The concept offers a space where wine enthusiasts can explore some of the Barossa's most distinctive wines during privately hosted wine experiences in the heart of Australia's largest city.

Opened on the 13th October 2021, fine wine specialist Justin Lambert manages the tasting room and with his passion for wine and the Barossa shining through in the wine experience offered. Justin's long experience with wine makes him an inviting host for wine lovers of all levels.   

"This exciting initiative is the first of its kind for Sydney. Our Old Vines Expressions tasting experience is an exploration of some of the rarest wines in the world, from vines that are 50, 100 and 150 years old," says Justin. "The space is intimate, with groups limited to 18 people, to create hosted experiences that are truly personal and special. It is a fun place for Sydneysiders to explore the Barossa in their backyard."

Château Tanunda's private wine tasting room is ideal for lovers of wine, celebration occasions, wine clubs and corporate groups.

"Our tasting room provides the perfect base in the city from which to share our distinguished Barossa wines with a wide audience while also allowing us to venture into the boardrooms and offices of the CBD to host wine experiences directly with corporate teams," says Justin.

The unique cellar door offers privately hosted tastings of Château Tanunda's most sought after wines from the Single Vineyard 'The Chateau', through to the Terroirs of the Barossa and rare and collectable Old Vine Expressions from 50, 100 and 150 year-old vineyards. 

The immersive experiences can be booked online or directly with the tasting room.

Wines are also available by the glass with access to a selection of tasty treats for those looking for a casual visit while in the Rocks. 

Visitation is subject to the current NSW Health restrictions. This includes density restrictions, and vaccination requirements of the government. If you are unsure of current NSW requirements, please ask our cellar door host when making your booking.
