You could spend a lot of time at Seppeltsfield Estate these days without actually taking part in a conventional cellar door tasting.
The relaunch of the historic Barossa Valley winery last November after an 18-month redevelopment has put an even greater focus on cuisine (at the new Fino restaurant on site), art and craft (at the Jam Factory on site), a diverse events program, heritage experiences and even guided Segway tours of the property.
The judges in South Australia’s inaugural Best of Wine Tourism Awards were also impressed, naming Seppeltsfield the winner in two categories: for Wine Tourism Services and Art and Culture. The awards were held as part of Adelaide’s membership of the Great Wine Capitals Global Network. Seppeltsfield went on to compete in the international finals in Portugal in November and took home the prestigious title of Best Wine Tourism Service.
