About Seppeltsfield Wines
Seppeltsfield is one of Australia’s most historic estates, established in the Barossa Valley by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia. In 1850, Joseph Seppelt, an emigrant of Silesia (modern-day Poland), purchased 158 acres of land in Nuriootpa, Barossa. Designating it “Seppeltsfield,” Joseph originally farmed tobacco, with later Seppelt generations pivoting to grape growing and winemaking. Seppeltsfield flourished into the 20th century. Along with wine, the Seppelt stable included brandy, gin, vermouth, assorted cordials, and vinegars. Seppeltsfield also expanded into different regions of Australia, most notably Great Western and Rutherglen, wings that came to be sold into separate ownership.
The Seppelt family maintained ownership of Seppeltsfield Barossa until 1985. The company went into a period of corporate ownership before returning to private ownership in 2007. Under the custodianship of proprietor Warren Randall – an esteemed viticulturist and winemaker who worked for the Seppelt family during the 1980s – the estate has become a custodianship of the Seppelt family legacy.
Seppeltsfield is most famed for the Centennial Collection – an unbroken lineage of Australian “Tawny,” every vintage from 1878 to the current year. The estate remains the only winery to release a 100-year-old, single vintage wine each year. The estate also boasts a remarkable collection of historic Australian fortified wines: Muscat, Apera (an Australian take on Sherry), and Tokay (a style made from the Muscadelle grape, internationally recognized as Topaque) – all held in vast solera nursery cellars. And most recently, the recommissioning of the 1888 gravity cellar has revitalized the estate’s focus on still wines.
