Seppelt Great Western Winery
Seppelt Great Western Winery Review
Although many Australians may have never visited Seppelt Great Western winery, it's a good bet that most of them have sampled Great Western "champagne" at some point in their lives. Today it's referred to as "sparkling," and the winery makes a Salinger and a Fleur de Lys sparkling as well as a Sparkling Shiraz and still wines. Beneath the winery is an underground labyrinth of tunnels, known as the Drives, dating back to 1868 and originally built by goldminers. This is where the best sparklings are kept. You can take a day tour of these tunnels and the nearby shaft house and taste 20 Seppelt wines, or a candlelight evening tour (minimum 10 people) on the last weekend of every month, which includes wine tasting and a cheese platter.
