Tanunda Building Inspections

Ahhh, beautiful vino! It’s not just a drink for any occasion, but a lifestyle for so many people around the world. The many grapes, the pairings with food, the way it brings people together; whether you are a sophisticated connoisseur or a casual enjoyer, a wine will forever be a popular choice.

I daresay that the people of Tanunda appreciate all the wonderful experiences that a life of wine brings. Situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley, Tanunda is not only full of incredible vineyards but is home to over 4,000 people. It is no coincidence that the vineyards are located in a region that provides a climate that fosters growth. Excellent soil, sun and rain: everything a grapevine needs. Sometimes though, Mother Nature brings too much rain, meaning that the homes of Tanunda are susceptible to floods. If you are looking to buy here, a pre-purchase property inspection can help appease any worries you have about its condition.

Stormwater & Flooding

Moisture is not a home’s friend. When it penetrates the building’s exterior, it can compromise its structural integrity and create conditions that are conducive to pest infestation. When we carry out our building inspections, one of the first things we do is view the home’s exterior and assess how excess water would build up outside. We inspect the pathways and look for signs of water damage. Sometimes the natural landscape of the home’s surroundings makes it susceptible to flooding, but if there is anything that can be done to limit moisture finding its way into a home, Detail Building Inspections will be able to let you know.

Why Tanunda?

While Tanunda is home to many winemakers, it is also just a genuinely beautiful place that is rich with history. Originally a small settlement, Tanunda was home to German immigrants that called this place home in 1838. To this day, the township has buildings that date back to the nineteenth century, in addition to a town brass band that has been active for over 150 years. Tanunda provides its people with a lifestyle that celebrates its history, all the while surrounding the township with some of the world’s most established wineries.


A Cellar Door Experience

If you live in Tanunda or are just visiting for the day, why not check out one of the fifty-odd wineries of the Barossa Valley? Perhaps the most fulfilling experience—other than drinking fabulous vino—is meeting the numerous winemakers and hearing the stories behind their vineyard and the different grapes they have on offer.

When you are visiting a cellar door, for example Chateau Tanunda they are usually more than happy for you to taste what they have produced. If you like it, you can generally buy a bottle cheaper than what is offered at bottle shops. You could either enjoy it there, or stock up on a few more to take back home and indulge at a later date.
