Adelaide, South Australia was settled as a free "non-convict" colony, is one of the oldest German settlement in the world. In 1834, a group of German Prussian who pursued religious freedom aboard a ship and sailed across the ocean to South Australia to take root in a small valley near Adelaide Hills. Since then, more German and Silesian emigrants were also arriving, fleeing religious persecution in Old Europe, naturally, they bring with Germany's culture, architecture, food and wine to Adelaide.
The region is one of Australia’s oldest wine-producing areas, with a wine-making history dating back 150 years. The first vineyards were planted in the 1830s by European settlers, who built stone hewn structures and cottages alongside the vines. They were no doubt European vine cuttings such as Grenache or Shiraz.
WILHELM Munchenberg born at Meseritz,
in the province of Posen (Silesia). In June 1838, Wilhelm, together with his family travelled from Turowo, Prussia to Hamburg and embarking on the sailing ship called "Catherina", after 128 days at sea. Finally, on 2nd January 1839, they arrived at Port Adelaide.
From 1840 to 1900, many grape growers practiced viticulture and wine-making. It was the very beginning of the Munchenberg's family vineyard, where the young Wilhelm and his wife planted the first vine on their land. Established vineyards, which continue to be the livelihood of present day descendants.
In 2014, the Tangerides Wine Pty Ltd purchased the vineyards from the Munchenberg's family, whose Great Great Grandfather prepared the land and planted out the first vineyards, tending and nurturing the fruit of the vine in much the same way as his descendants do today.

2014 – A Remarkable Vintage
2014- Vineyards of Tangerides saw early vintage challenges of extreme heat and rain which resulted in slightly lower than average fruit yields. Despite this, the overall quality achieved this year was outstanding.The vineyard canopies maintained optimum physiological ripeness, resulting in perfect sugar and acid balance in the white varieties. The colour intensity in the reds was exceptional, as was the ripeness of the skin and seed tannins.
2015 – A Fine, Mild Vintage
2015- We experienced a very unusual weather pattern, a mild December and an even cooler than average January, with just enough rainfall to keep the vines healthy, resulted in all grape varieties achieving full ripeness within a very early February.
2016 – The best all-around Vintage
2016- the focus was on riesling, shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, with quality very good to excellent. The heat was alleviated by widespread rain at the end of January and early February.
