Seppeltsfield


The Barossa Valley is just 65km out of Adelaide in South Australia and is a a major wine-producing region producing 21% of Australia’s wines. It is a beautiful region filled with villages, valleys, vineyards, fabulous food and patchwork landscapes. There are acres of vineyards and around 150 wineries and cellar doors to experience.

The Barossa Valley has distinct German heritage that dates back to 1842 when many of the settlers fled from religious persecution in Prussia, thankfully taking their vine cuttings with them. Today the old-world charm remains as new generations carry on with the family business and German traditions.

It was autumn when we were there and these photos don’t do it justice but it was still very beautiful. At every turn there is a spectacular view and landscape to take in. There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the most romantic regions in Australia.

Our first stop was Seppeltsfield Winery. The Seppelt family settled in the Barossa Valley in 1851 and purchased the property now known as Seppelsfield. You can read more about the history here.

Be sure to visit The Barossa Valley if you are ever on this side of the world.
More to come in my next post.
