 Seppelt
Since 1851, The House of Seppelt has been at the forefront of Australian winemaking, consolidating a reputation for innovation and quality
From its beginnings in the Barossa Valley in 1851, Seppelt has pioneered vineyard plantings in regions of southern and eastern Australia. Constantly innovating, Seppelt is creating new wine styles, new packaging and new ideas that position this outstanding winery as a world leader. Seppelt's Great Western Winery is famous for The Drives (the labyrinthine catacombs of sparkling cellars) and home to the two champion Shiraz wines, St. Peters of Great Western, and the world-renowned Show Sparkling Shiraz.
 Mount Langi
The vineyards of Mount Langi Ghiran are nestled between two dramatically beautiful mountain ranges on the southern edge of the Great Dividing Range in Western Victoria, 180 km west of Melbourne
Pronounced "Mount Langee Jeeran", the name is Aboriginal for "Home of the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo". The initial vineyards were planted by the Fratin brothers in 1963, on the site of a vineyard that had been in operation at the turn of the century. Their first plantings were Shiraz, and initially, the grapes were sold to neighbouring winemakers. The exceptionally high quality of their fruit quickly drew a strong following and encouraged the Fratins to begin making their own wine.
 Halls Gap Estate
Halls Gap Vineyard was planted on the steep eastern slopes of the Grampians Ranges in 1969
Halls Gap Estate represented part of the second coming of the Victorian wine industry, which had seen very little new plantings since the turn of the century. The region had always had a pedigree for great wines with the first vineyards in Grampians being planted at Bests & Seppelts, in the early 1860s. The Halls Gap property had long been a respected grower for many of the country’s great wineries, Seppelts and Penfolds, until 1996, when it was bought by the famed Victorian winemaker, the late, great Trevor Mast. It remained a staple of Mount Langi Ghiran until acquisition by Aaron Drummond of Circe Wines in 2013.
 Grampians Estate
Grampians Estate is small family owned boutique winery situated amongst 3,000 acres of tree-lined farming land nestled within the beautiful Grampians region
The Grampians Wine Region is one of the most significant, historical and acclaimed wine regions in the country. Vines were first planted at Bests and Seppelts in the mid 1860s and as they have prospered, others have joined them to produce wines of exceptional quality. The signature wines from the area revolve around the rich but delicate peppery shiraz wines, however white varieties such as riesling and chardonnay also suit the climate. And then there’s sparkling wines and the famous sparkling shiraz.

 Garden Gully
Garden Gully is built on the original Salinger's Hockheim winery site which originated in the 1870's and operated as such until 1945
The vineyard produces a limited range of premium wines sourced from the property's old vines and as well as younger plantings. The Shiraz is sensational and the Sparkling Shiraz takes all of us back to those halcyon days of the Great Western Region. The Garden Gully's vignerons are still trying to reshape the grand old vines and repair some of the damage caused by several years of neglect. The strategy is to prune the vineyard as late as possible to minimize the frost risk. Despite the frost and the very small crop at Garden Gully, the vines need frequent watering to maintain vine health.
