Pindarie Winery

A family owned property, with Tony Brooks at the helm after taking over from his grandfather in 1990. Together with Wendy the transformation of Pindarie began. What was once a run-down & over-cleared farm has become a sustainable and regenerated property with Tony and Wendy planting over 12,500 trees in the last 20 years.
Prior to returning to Pindarie, Tony had jackarooed on a number of Outback Stations around Australia, and studied at Roseworthy Agricultural College, South Australia in 1985. When he graduated he worked overseas managing sheep feedlots in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Jordan. Tony has a strong connection to the land and a passion for renovating old buildings. He believes land must be looked after in a sustainable manner. In his spare time you will find Tony restoring the old buildings on Pindarie, planting trees… He is a man of action who doesn’t really have ‘spare time’.
Wendy was born in New Zealand into a large family on a sheep, cattle and deer farm deep in the South Island. She came to South Australia in 1985 to study Viticulture at Roseworthy Agricultural College where she met Tony. After graduating, Wendy then worked for the next 12 years with the Penfolds Wine Group, starting as a Grower Liaison officer and working her way up to Senior Viticulturist. During her working career, she travelled overseas to California, Israel, Italy, Germany, France, Portugal, Spain and Chile, to conduct study tours, work vintages, and assess vineyards for wine projects. In 2001 Wendy completed a Graduate Diploma in Wine Business.
Pindarie is a beautiful property and home to Tony, Wendy and their three children. Opening the Cellar door has allowed them to share what they love. Historic buildings, meticulously restored, wide open spaces, family friendly, sustainable and the very best grapes they can grow turned into wine.


Seppeltsfield

Seppeltsfield was established in the Barossa Valley by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia. Steeped in rich Barossan heritage, the estate is considered a true national treasure which helped shape the history of the Australian wine industry.
Regarded as one of Australia’s most successful wine dynasties, the Seppelt family maintained ownership of their wine interests, including Seppeltsfield, until 1985. B Seppelt & Sons, as it was then known, went on to evolve into a period of corporate ownership which extended nearly three decades. Malcolm Seppelt and his wife Joylene who is one of our Soroptimist International Barossa Valley member resided on this property as direct descendants of Joseph and Johanna Seppelt. Malcolm was a vigneron and winemaker.
Seppeltsfield is most famed for the Centennial Collection - an irreplaceable and unbroken lineage of Tawny, every vintage from 1878 to current year. The estate remains the only winery in the world to release a 100 year old, single vintage wine each year. The estate also boasts a remarkable collection of Apera (Australian Sherry), crossing Fino to Oloroso styles, Tokay and Muscat, all held in vast Solero nursery cellars.
Seppeltsfield is a marriage of Barossan history, community and fine winemaking endeavour. A new golden era now sees JamFactory Craft + Design Studios, Vasse Virgin skin care and gastronomic excellence contribute to an exciting renaissance of Australia’s iconic wine estate.
