Hop on a Segway for a new view of the Seppeltsfield vineyards

It was in at Spier Estate in South Africa (the country that leads the way in wine tourism) that I first saw Segway tours of vineyards. 

The idea has now caught on in Australia with the Hunter Resort in the Hunter Valley among the pioneers. 

Most recently Seppeltsfield has partnered with local business Segway Sensation SA to bring Segway tours to the historic Barossa estate.

The partnership initially sees Segway tours offered three times daily on weekends and public holidays, where guests are guided on a one-hour trail throughout the Seppeltsfield estate grounds and vineyards.

Seppeltsfield is the first winery in South Australia to offer Segway tours to the public. The battery-operated, two-wheeled, personal transportation vehicles have become popular in recent years with tourism sites and city commuters. Users can command movement by simply shifting their weight forward or backward on a platform.

The partnership comes as a complement to the redevelopment of Seppeltsfield’s cellar door, Fino restaurant and the JamFactory Art & Design Studios.

Segway Sensation SA owners Cindy Chynoweth and Shane Camilleri, said bringing Segways to Seppeltsfield was a fantastic opportunity. 

“Having discussed the concept with several tourism bodies, we were enthused at the prospect of being based at Seppeltsfield”, said Cindy. “The estate is breathtakingly beautiful – from gorgeous gardens, palm lined roads, heritage buildings and ancient vineyard, it seems perfect for discovery by Segway.”

Guests are able to select from a Segway tour at $99 or a package which includes lunch at the estate’s picnic grounds for $127. Tours depart at 10.00am, 12:00pm and 2:00pm depending on the season.
