Seppeltsfield’s winemaking philosophy is guided by four elements, which reflect both their history and future endeavours. Thier wines are handcrafted ultimately for enjoyment, but with an eye on ageability. Their unique 1888 Gravity Cellar plays a significant role in the style of many of their bottlings, and for thier still wines, they celebrate the re-imagining of traditional fortified varietals. These elements are grounded in a belief of place over person. Their winemaking team’s primary aspiration is to translate the character of their vineyard sites and each season – in their wines themselves.
