All grapes are passionately tended at the Grand Cru Estate estate vineyard, to sustainable and biodynamic principles. Chemicals are used only sparsely, and solely as a supplement to ecologically friendly critical foliar sprays, aerated compost tea, and natural fertilisers. This provides valuable beneficial microbes which translate into a natural defense system within the plant, which then aids to envigor the vines. The Peter Seppelt principles of viticulture are the fundamentals for crafting exceptional Barossa wines.

Within the winery operation's tower building, casual dining is served to visitors of Grand Cru estate. The Wine Store, a traditional building, built by Peter Seppelt in beautiful stone, caters for larger group bookings. This is a wonderful atmospheric setting for a celebration or wedding or a casual relaxing luncheon amoungst the wine barrels for forty people plus. The newer Grand Cru Wood Oven Restaurant is open Friday and Saturday evenings. Dining is available on the beautiful entrance room, fondly nicknamed Red Room.

The famous Grand Cru estate tower has two levels, the ground floor which seats two to six guests for a more private and elegant occasion. The second level comfortably seats up to ten guests who are looking for a memorable evening. It is really a romantic interlude that one cannot help feel like they are living a fairytale. Why not dine outside under the veranda? It’s a perfect spot on a summers evening amid a beautiful South Australian country setting. Booking is essential so Pete can fire up the wood ovens.
