The Barossa Valley is one of the world’s best-loved winemaking destinations. With numerous vineyards dotted around, it produces some of the most popular tipple in Australia.
The Seppeltsfield Winery is one of the most established wineries in the region and can be found on the picturesque Western Ridge of the Barossa Valley. Bringing together over 420 acres of centuries-old vineyards, pretty gardens, and heritage-listed architecture, it promises a treat for all the senses.
Surrounded by a small settlement, the winery joins up with the nearby districts of Greenock and Marananga. This area is characterised by rolling patchwork hills that seem to unfold endlessly in every direction. The property itself is grand, with more than 2000 Canary Island Date Palms lining the avenue that approaches it.
