  • What is the total distance of the tunnels/what has been the max amount of bottles and how may currently/when was the first bottle produced? Is Seppelt owned by Great Western? We camped there 18 months ago but it was so busy in the group, it was hard to get answers from the tour leader.

    • Hi Wim,

      Thanks for contacting us. We aren’t actually representatives of Seppelt Great Western, but i have used my search skills to find your answers.

      Please see below:
      What is the total distance of the tunnels?
      The tunnels wind around for three kilometers beneath the historic Great Western home

      What has been the max amount of bottles & how may currently?
      Unfortunately, i was unable to find any information on this. With 3kms of tunnel, it’s going to be quite a few!

      When was the first bottle produced?
      It’s mentioned that Seppelt has been making wine for 160 years, starting in 1851. As for the Grampians vineyard itself, it’s stated that the historic Seppelt St. Peters vineyard was first established in 1863, and then re-planted in 1962.

      Is Seppelt owned by Great Western?
      The brand name is just “Seppelt”, and “Great Western” is actually the town where the winery is located. If you have seen their other region’s bottle labels, you would notice they have a tendency to put the region name directly under the logo, which might be the source of confusion.

      Digging deeper, it looks like Seppelt brand is owned by “Treasury Wine Estates”, who happen to also own such brands as Lindemans, Penfolds, Wolf Blass, Wynns and many more.

      Hope this helps.
      Michael
