The Drives

The ‘Drives’ refers to the elaborate labyrinth of excavated tunnels that lie hidden beneath the Seppelt Winery. Gold miners began excavating the Drives cellars in 1868 and ever since, generations of wine have slowly matured underground here – including the wine collection of former Prime Minister, Malcolm Fraser, which remains in his individual cellar under lock and key today.

In honour of these famous tunnels, Seppelt has crafted a range of wines sourced from select Victorian vineyards that celebrate the famous Seppelt Drives and pay tribute to the miners who worked tirelessly to preserve some of Australia’s finest wines.
