Founded in 1851 and established in Great Western in the heart of the Grampians in 1864, Seppelt is one of Australia’s most important and most historic wineries. From the cool Grampians country, the wild Henty hinterland and the famous gold-bearing soils of Heathcote, Seppelt specialises in crafting cool-climate style wines that express the unique personalities of some of Victoria’s finest vineyards.
The portfolio includes some of Australia’s most lauded wines, including the flagship St Peters Grampians Shiraz and the mythical Drumborg Vineyard Riesling.
Seppelt also has a rich heritage in sparkling wine – producing Australia’s first vintage in 1890 – and today is the country’s most awarded producer. Seppelt is also a pioneer of sparkling shiraz – a uniquely Australian wine style for which the Seppelt Show Sparkling Shiraz is considered by many to be the benchmark.
Today winemaking is led by Seppelt Senior Winemaker Adam Carnaby who continues to build upon the Seppelt legacy, with a particular focus on shiraz, chardonnay, riesling, sparkling white and sparkling shiraz.
