‘Grand vision’ for Barossa Valley hotel revealed

Plans for a curvaceous hotel in the Barossa Valley, to be constructed at a cost of $50 million, have been revealed.

Designed by Adelaide-based practice Intro Architecture, the Oscar Seppeltsfield hotel will rise to 12 storeys and contain approximately 70 rooms, each with a balcony. The top level will comprise a “sky bar” and the building will also be home to a day spa, restaurant and boardroom.

The design references the history of the winery and the wine barrels in Seppeltsfield’s Centennial Cellar. The hotel has been named after vintner Oscar Benno Seppelt.

In a statement, Seppeltsfield owner Warren Randall said, “Oscar will complete the grand vision of our tourism master plan for Seppeltsfield to become the most desirable epicurean destination for tourists worldwide. We wanted to create a national icon for South Australia – a Sydney Opera House for the Barossa.”

The proponents plan to lodge a planning application for the hotel soon.
