The Seppelt family has been making wine for over 150 years, and with Peter Seppelt Wines, the tradition continues. Peter Seppelt is the 5th generation Seppelt to continue the winemaking tradition. 32 years on the 120 hectares has become Grand Cru Estate. The name 'Grand Cru', reflects our aim of producing fine wine, contributed to by the perfect elevation which produces wonderful cool climate wines.
After Peter and wife Roz purchased the Estate from Karl in 2006 it has gone through a transformation from a simple farm to the 'hidden gem' of the Barossa which you see today. The Cellar Door and Restaurant welcomes you as you walk past the beautiful bronze birdbath and pond from the front car park. The iconic French-inspired tower now welcomes fine dining with two levels available for small groups. The Wine Store has had a "face lift" for all to enjoy during larger functions (40 or more) and Weddings.
All wine grapes are grown here in our vineyard at Grand Cru Estate. We are passionate about growing our fruit the Biological Way. That is achieved using chemicals only when most needed. And supplementing various critical foliar sprays with natural fertilisers. Holistic management improves the population of beneficial microbes which helps build a natural defence system within the plant, which then aids against unwanted disease. The Biological Way also contributes towards having a very healthy plant which then produces fine fruit for fine wines.
We also enjoy sharing our bird life. We are passionate breeders of Guinea Fowl which roam the property eating bugs and weed seeds. They really are a beautiful sight not often seen. Children are most welcome at Peter Seppelt Wines. Our fluffy friends, the Silky Bantams will come up to eat bread from your hand. Lord Henry Leopold is our proud rooster with his girls children will delight in heir antics!
We look forward to your company to share the best kept secret in the Eden Valley - Peter Seppelt Wines, Grand Cru Estate.
