Historic bell rings in promising vintage

The historic Chateau Tanunda bell has rung in its 125th vintage.

Echoing through the valley on Tuesday morning, the sound brought a sense of hope and expectations of a promising year for the Barossa wine industry.

Chateau Tanunda proprietor, Mr John Geber gave his team a pep talk as the winery took delivery of its first load of grapes, Pinot grown by fifth generation grower, Mr Kingsley Marschall.

Mr Geber spoke of being the custodian of a historically significant winery, its important connections to the local community and upholding what he calls the “Chateau Standard” for generations to come.

This year, the winery is expected to crush 600 tonne under the watchful eye of newly appointed winemaker, Mr Neville Rowe.
