When planning a trip to the Barossa Valley, the thought of shopping is probably more along the line of which Shiraz to buy rather than which shoes to have made for you, or which bespoke knife to purchase, or how to choose from a fabulous range of handmade hats or fascinators. Confused? Let me explain!

When you stay at Seppeltsfield Vineyard Cottage, not only are you near some of the Barossa’s best wineries, but also very close to some very talented artisans making bespoke products.

Let me introduce you to the newest Artisan in residence at The Jam Factory@ Seppeltsfield!

Julie Fleming

Victoria may have stolen the Grand Prix from South Australia, but we have poached Julie Fleming, one of Australia’s longest established milliners and lured her to the Barossa Valley! Julie has been making bespoke hats and fascinators since 1989 and her legendary commitment to style is definitely our gain.

Not only can you buy Julie’s wonderful creations, but she will also teach you her secrets if you enrol in her classes held at her Seppeltsfield Winery studio here in the Barossa. Visit Julie’s website for more of Julie’s wonderful work.
