Only a 30 minute drive north of Seppeltsfield Vineyard Cottage and the Barossa, is Anlaby Station. It is the home of the oldest Merino Stud in South Australia and the historically listed gardens include the shade house, glass house, walled vegetable garden, rose gardens and terraced lawns. The original carriageway winds past the front of the house and down to the peacock aviary.
I’ve been hanging out for years for Van Morrison to feature at a Barossa Under the Stars event, but Here Comes the Night, Songs from the Van Morrison Songbook will do thank you!
Joe Camilleri, a legend of Australian contemporary rock, will partner with Vince Jones and special guests The Voodoo Sheiks and The Silo String Quartet to ensure a thrilling night at Seppeltsfield Winery, just a short walk up through a vineyard and across the road from the cottage.
Every two years in the Barossa we celebrate the end of the grape harvest with the Barossa Vintage Festival.
This year it will be held from the 15th to 19th April. It’s Australia’s original wine tourism event, showcasing 95 events over 5 days including a decadent feast, long table lunches, wild gypsy parties, a scarecrow trail and a comedic journey through wine education. An easy one-hour drive north of Adelaide, the Barossa Vintage Festival has evolved to become the premier wine tourism festival in Australia, and is the jewel in the Barossa events calendar.
There are Food & Wine events, Arts and Heritage and Community Events.
Last week the Barossa Stage 1 of the 2014 Santos Tour Down Under was a resounding success, with the riders passing by close to our vineyard & cottage 3 times during the race in spectacular weather. Our Seize the Day Cabernet and Shiraz vines can be seen in the background of this photo as the peloton made its way from the township of Greenock along Seppeltsfield Road up the hill toward Seppeltsfield Winery.
