Seppeltsfield Wines
Seppeltsfield
Seppeltsfield Wines began in 1851 when Joseph Seppelt, fleeing turmoil in his native Silesia purchased a beautiful property in the Barossa Valley, and named it after himself - Seppeltsfield. He decided to plant vines. Thus was born the village you see today. These bluestone cellars now carefully mature the 100 year old Para Port. Over the years many activities and industries found a sympathetic home at Seppeltsfield. Our vision is to see as many of these (and more) revived.
