Seppelt Great Western
The Great Western winery was founded by Joseph Best in 1865. He commissioned local gold miners to tunnel the underground cellars that became known as Drives. The winery was later purchased by Ballarat businessman Hans Irvine, who produced Australia’s first sparkling Shiraz wine. Benno Seppelt took ownership of the winery in 1918 and put Great Western on the map with magnificent sparkling and exceptional table wines, particularly Shiraz.
