Underground Dining

The historic Seppelt is home to the longest underground cellars in the Southern Hemisphere. It was in 1864 when Joseph Best began the excavation process of the cellars. With the assistance of gold miners, it took sixty-five years to complete. Now, more than 150 years since the first cellar was dug, the underground cellars are open to the public for tours. These tours depart daily from the Seppelt cellar door and visitors have the exclusive opportunity to appreciate the cellars with a fine dining experience.

A private tour guide will welcome you and your guests above ground before you embark below the surface into the historic cellars for a tour of the drives. Your private guide will take you on a journey, back to the 1800s when the Best Brothers first arrived in Great Western, to the days in the early 1900s when aristocrat Hans Irvine owned the winery, through to current day operations with Seppelt.

The executive chefs at Seppelt will then present a fine-dining underground experience paired brilliantly with Seppelt’s award-winning wines. All underground dining experiences must be booked privately and can accommodate between ten and 200 people.

The experience at Seppelt is one of Australia’s truly unique food and wine experiences.
