The story:

Seppeltsfield require no introduction as one of the oldest and most established brands in Australian wine, we have been buying fortified wines from the Seppelstfield estate since the beginning of ReWine in 2005. The relationship with the ReWine Crew goes back to the 90s when Marshall was doing wholesale to the Melbourne restaurant scene.

A little on the history of Seppeltsfield: In 1850, Joseph Seppelt, an emigrant of Silesia, purchased 158 acres of land in the Hundred of Nuriootpa from Hermann Kook, farmer of Tanunda, at £1 an acre. Designating it ‘Seppeltsfield’, Joseph’s original intention was to farm tobacco, with later Seppelt generations concentrating the estate’s efforts on grape growing and winemaking. The estate returned to private ownership in 2007, now under the custodianship of proprietor Warren Randall – a qualified viticulturist and winemaker who worked for the Seppelt family during the 1980s.
