This National Trust-listed property was founded in 1857 by Joseph Seppelt, an immigrant from Silesia. The wine tour around the gardens and bluestone buildings is well worth doing. On a nearby slope, check out the family's Romanesque mausoleum, skirted by planted roadside palms, built during the 1930s recession to keep winery workers employed. Open daily 10:30am to 5pm. The Daily Heritage Tour runs every day at 11:30am, 1:30 and 3:30pm and costs A$15 (including tastings); other tours cover everything from rare wines to barrel-making but must be scheduled in advance.
