Barossa Valley

A vista of gently rolling hills, 5000 acres of shiraz vines and a wide, open sky - there isn’t a more picturesque location than this. It was, in fact, this very view which, for US natives Jim & Helen Carreker, ended a world-wide search and bore the creation of an icon - The Louise Barossa Valley.

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."

You can’t judge quality purely by the numbers, but they do tell part of the story of how and why The Louise has made its mark in the Barossa.

The 5-star boutique luxury lodge has 40 staff for no more than 32 guests, has won an unprecedented nine successive Hall of Fame awards from Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine, and is one of only seven Australian properties affiliated with the prestigious global network Relais & Châteaux.
