    A great finish to our Barossa Valley day
    This was the best finale to a great day. Even though the restaurant was full we certainly didn't mind the wait with going with the tastings until we could have a table. The sharing platters were melt in your mouth and we have to congratulate the wonderful staff for what seemed to be a hectic busy time for the day they didn't expect. My husband and his friend chose to go and taste the port from the vat from the year of their birth and was so worth the tour. A great finish to our day.
    Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're so glad you enjoyed your time at Seppeltsfield. The Taste Your Birth Year Tour is a fabulous experience and we hope you get to enjoy it as well as your husband and his friend next time you visit.

    Seppeltsfield is well worth a visit. Fino restaurant is a must include.
    Great experience. Had the RAA members lunch at Fino restaurant…pay for three course meal but get upgraded to a four course meal. Set menu but was great. Tasty. Included was a tasting. This was a highlight. Lots of wine to enjoy and laughs with our hostess. Seppeltsfield is well worth the visit. Lots to see and do. If you an RAA member I would strongly suggest that deal. If not a member….join…..
    Thank you for sharing your great experience at Seppeltsfield Estate! We're thrilled you enjoyed the lunch at Fino restaurant and the wine tasting in cellar door. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Warm regards, Jordan

    Jonathan the superstar host
    Jonathan was an amazing tour guide and host! We came through with a tour group and were so lucky to have Jonathan as our host for the afternoon! His knowledge and passion was outstanding, we could have listened to his stories all day! He also made sure to explain all of the beautiful food and wine we were wasting during our lunch. I can't wait to bring my next group through, and hope to have Jonathan as our guide again. Thank you for your fun personality and sharing so much with us, we had a great time and left smiling (and with a few bottles of wine)!
    Thank you for sharing your fantastic experience at Seppeltsfield Estate! We're thrilled that Jonathan made your tour memorable and enjoyable with his knowledge and passion. We're glad you had a great lunch experience with his explanations of the food and wine. We look forward to welcoming your next group and hope to have Jonathan as your guide again!

    Very nice winery and great selection of wines
    Beautiful old buildings make up the wine tasting room and restaurant. Old history associated with the winery. Many other activities apart from wine tasting like segway tours and back of house tours. Some beautiful wines to taste. Well worth the visit.

    Worth a stop to have been there
    This is the quintessential Barossa winery famous for having vintage tawny for every year for over a century. Their wines are better than average but IMO not great for our tastes. however even their cheapest Para tawny is pretty good. The staff in the 'cellar door' were attentive and informative but at the end of the day it is a big operation and not so personal. There are a few other bits in the complex like a gallery, gift shop, etc, restaurant and 'cafe'. The 'cafe' should be an embarrassment as the winery is iconic but the 'producers platter' is not generous and is served in a cardboard tray. Inside seating is more nasty camp ground than cafe; it was 38C when we visited and in contrast most days sitting outside would be 'a moment'. - Give the 'cafe' a wide miss unless you get a platter with eyes wide open. It might win a gong for one of the most uninspiring platters ever from any wine region. On the way you probably will pass the Seppelt family mausoleum. A few steps climb to get to it but nice views.
    Thank you for taking the time to share your honest feedback about your recent visit to Seppeltsfield Estate.

    Great stop for a quick port tasting.
    Stopped off for an hour at this beautiful location. A quick peruse of the art gallery was followed by a helpful member of staff being able to arrange a shorter version of their normal wine tasting to focus on their fortified wines. David was extremely welcoming and knowledgable (especially as it was only his second day!) After trying four of their fortified wines, we moved onto their skincare barn and had a great time trying out their products in their huge sink. A quick coffee from their coffee shop and we had to hit the road. Would highly recommend for a visit, even if you don’t give the wine tasting a go! For info, the wine tasting was free if you bought some wine. Otherwise, it was advertised at $15 per person (which gave you at least 8 wines… we only tried their 4 fortified wines so don’t quote me!). They also offer a tasting of their 100 year old port for $100!
    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Seppeltsfield Estate. We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit.

    "WOW!! Beautiful Seppeltsfield Estate Barossa Valley"
    WOW!! How beautiful is Seppeltsfield Estate. My husband and I only had coffee at Octeine which is their onsite small cafe at the entrance (could be so much better) but we also came to have a stroll around the estate. They have an onsite restaurant Fino which looked amazing and also the cellar door. Onsite is a very tasteful shop Vasse Virgin, which is a natural olive oil producer. I spent so much time here sampling their products. The displays and decor are excellent along with the customer service. The stop here is a must when visiting the estate.
    Thank you for your wonderful review. We're delighted you and your husband enjoyed your visit to Seppeltsfield Estate. We appreciate your feedback about Octeine and will take it into consideration. It's great to hear you enjoyed exploring Vasse Virgin and found their products and service exceptional. We hope you'll return to experience more, like dining at Fino or visiting our cellar door. There's always more to discover at Seppeltsfield. Warm regards, Jordan

Heard a lot about this Vineyard and it an impressive place. The food at the restaurant was incredible.
Unfortunately staff at the Cellar Door ruined our experience. We were told to go and view a crappy gallery while we waited for the wine tasting event hough we had a booking. A large group after us without a booking were treated better.
After being ignored by Cellar Door staff, we left without the wine tasting.

Will return for the food and the atmosphere, but please improve the service at ur eine tasting.

Our guide Ellouise was exceptional. Her knowledge and enthusiasm on the history made the Centenary experience unforgettable. Thank you Ellouise. Then the restaurant staff at Fino exceeded our expectations with their service and selections of food and wine to suit our last minute changes to the set menu. Nothing was too difficult.
