Adam Carnaby


Winemaker Adam Carnaby brings a diverse skill set to the Seppelt winemaking team.

His passion for wine began while working in hospitality management at Melbourne's Hilton Hotel, where he was exposed to a broad range of wine styles and international vintage experience. Adam studied at Charles Sturt University, completing a bachelor degree in wine science in 2003 after gaining a bachelor in applied science from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 1990.

Adam commenced as Seppelt winemaker in 2011 following roles as assistant winemaker at Yering Station in the Yarra Valley and five years as winemaker at Xanadu in Margaret River. His sound technical grounding is underpinned by vintage experience gained in Burgundy in 2005.

Adam sites the importance of terroir and regional expression as driving factors in his winemaking philosophy.

Larry Sadler


Drumborg is an amazing vineyard, at times unforgiving, but always delivering exceptional fruit with great intensity and structure

Growing up on the rural outskirts of Sydney, Larry Sadler was destined to head bush instead of the city.

Larry studied at the University of Adelaide, completing a Bachelor Degree in Agricultural Science (Viticulture) and further post graduate diploma in wine business. He began managing Seppelt Drumborg vineyard in 1996 after working as assistant vineyard manager at Wynns Coonawarra.

Larry's passion for Seppelt's Drumborg Vineyard is evident, and working the site remains a special privilege.
