Seppeltsfield won the international award for the Best in Wine Tourism Services category in Porto, Portugal on 10 November 2016.  Seppeltsfield Proprietor and Managing Director Warren Randall said "This award signals a completed transition of Seppeltsfield from a staid - albeit it historic - wine property, to a dynamic and multi-experiential destination, where wine, regional food and art are equally celebrated and promoted. The Barossa and South Australia can be proud of a now internationally – benchmarked tourism asset. It’s now time to promote this achievement and capitalise on any visitation potential."
