Boho & Bubbles are private functions, just for you and the people you choose to celebrate with. Our events team will set up your area, either on the acres of lawn or in the shade of the vines on the Seppelt Cellar Door verandah. We host Boho & Bubbles functions in the warmer months of the year, between September and April and can host between 12 – 30 people.
Bookings need to be made 14 days in advance. We can set up your events in several different formats. Seated on our lush lawns, with pillows and picnic blankets. If you prefer, we can set up tables with chairs. Trestles will be brimming with fresh produce platters.

Have a little more time? Chat to our Events Manager about booking in for a tour of the amazing underground cellar that is located below the surface of the Seppelt Cellar Door. There are over 3 kilometres of hand dug cellars, up to seven metres below the surface. It is a “must see” when visiting the Grampians Region. The Seppelt tour guides will also give you a bit of a history lesson on Australian Wine. You will be super handy at the next pub trivia night or have the best topic to discuss over a bottle of Grampians Wine shared with friends.
Relax and celebrate with the Boho and Bubbles for $55 a guest. For further information at bookings, please contact the Seppelt Events Manager at email@example.com or give the cellar door a call on 03 53562211.
Do you want to make it a weekend celebration? Why don’t you book some of the accommodation on the Seppelt Great Western Estate. Located in the amazing foothills of the Grampians mountain range, the accommodation is perfectly suited for girls weekends with and large groups.
Vine Lodge and Bests Cottage
The historic homestead and Maids Quarters that was built by Hans Irvine in the 1800s. The entire property will sleep up to 14 people, across 7 rooms. Vine Lodge has hosted many dignitaries and hosted many celebrations. Dame Nellie Melba has sang in the ballroom, Mark Twain visited and stayed in the homestead whilst writing his travel book “Following the Equator – A journey around the world”. I presume he drank quite a bit of the Hans Irvine wine that was produced on site in those days and wrote about the potential of the fledgling wine region, noting its potential for producing exceptional wine… “The Stawell region had great vineyards but the Great Western is regarded as a mode.” Australia’s very first Governor General, Lord Hopetoun, also stayed at the property. Why not add your name to the long list of amazing people who have stayed on the grounds at Seppelt Wines.
The large accommodation includes the main Vine Lodge homestead, Bests Cottage and the cute Maid Quarters. (Maids not included… but please feel free to bring your own) The Main homestead as a huge dining room, lounge room and an entertainers kitchen.
