Seppeltsfield: Para 100 Year Old Vintage Tawny

With a proud and priceless legacy dating back to 1851, Seppeltsfield is Australia’s iconic wine estate. Seppeltsfield was established in the Barossa Valley by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia.

Seppeltsfield’s history is punctuated with many moments of visionary foresight. Seppeltsfield’s founder, Joseph Seppelt and his eldest son, Benno, were particularly renowned for their longer term vision for the estate, closely following custodianship principles to ensure a legacy was passed on to future generations. This is no more evident than Benno Seppelt’s inception of the Centennial Cellar - a truly unique and unparalleled system of maturing single barrels of vintage Tawny for 100 years before release.

In 1866, plans to build a new bluestone cellar were started by Joseph. 12 years later in 1878 and following the passing of his father, Benno completed the stone cellars. In a gesture both unique and inspirational, Benno selected a puncheon of his finest Port wine and gave instructions that it was not to be bottled for 100 years. This single barrel of 1878 Tawny port was to remain maturing in a separate cellar within the bluestone cellars, untouched in the same location for 100 years. This special room would go on to become the Centennial Cellar.

The tradition of laying down a barrel of the finest Port from each vintage was continued every year following and continues to be so today. The Centennial Cellar now comprises an unbroken lineage of every vintage from the current year back to 1878. Seppeltsfield remains the only winery in the world to release a century year old, single vintage wine each year – the Para 100 Year Old Vintage Tawny.
