Unique interesting place, with a sort of museum in house. Very friendly staff, very helpful and knowledgeable. Wines are great as are the Fortified Wines, Meads and Ports. Another must visit place, been before and will visit again for sure.

My first visit to a meadery did not disappoint. Apart from the delicious products - particularly enjoyed the spicy 'wine' with cinnamon and nutmeg - I found the meadery process quite fascinating. Another good place to visit in the Barossa.

Excellent family run business with 30+ years history in the family and more than 100+ in the property as it is an old Seppeltsfield property that was purchased in the mid 80's. Hence the wonderful castle like turrents at the front. While others have marketed...More

First time visit, and pleasantly surprised. Bit worn down and old school, but phenomenal service and some delicious and very affordable wines. The late harvest Cabernet Sauvignon is a standout, served chilled! Oh, and the Blackcurrant liqueur! Yum! AND mead!

We came here for the port and the mead especially the blackcurrant and rum-raison ones. But the Falcon Shiraz isn't bad either. There are always cases on sale. Friendly staff and definitely worth a visit.

Chateau Doreen is visible from afar thanks to the huge vats for wine in the style of a castle tower. From afar, a real castle: a sort of Chambord in the Barossa valley. Despite its French name, this winery is managed by Fernando Martin representative...More

This place has changed hands a few times over the years and is a little bit run down but has history. These are Mead wines and are quite good I enjoy dropping in and having a taste and even purchased a few bottles. If you...More

Amazing wine and meads. Staff are fantastic and so accomodating. Loved the wines and the variety. Value for money with tastings was great. Favourite winery in the Barossa for sure.

It's hard when you meet nice folk, such as at Chateau D, to be critical. However, their wines are worse than any $8 wine you'll buy in a liqour store, except theirs cost $15 - 30.
