Unique concept plans were lodged with the Light Regional Council in October to re-establish the site as a village to support modern day activities. The company has also bought 2600 acres of prime Barossa vineyard, making Seppeltsfield Winery the largest privately owned grape grower in the Barossa. These decisions were made by Seppeltsfield Estate Trust, who took over the company in 2007 and involve a 50 per cent share by Warren Randall and a 50 per cent share by Clare Valley winery Kilikanoon, headed by Nathan Waks and Bruce Baudinet. According to Mr Baudinet, plans to develop a ‘village’ are about revitalising and rejuvenating a sleepy, yet beautiful iconic site to target tourism and artistic/creative audiences and create educational facilities. The shareholder’s visions seek to re-use about 35 winery buildings to accommodate activities and skills such as coopering, brewing, fine food production, glass blowing and carpentry/cabinet making. The development highlights educational uses such as residential schools for winemaking, viticulture, cooking, music arts, architecture and sustainable design. Plans also include tourism accommodation and additional residential uses for employees and visitors. Mr Baudinet, who explained the development has involved wide community consultation, said the “aim is to create a world class wine estate here in the Barossa”. He said buildings such as the old smokehouse, disused for decades, would open to support fine food production. Confidence in the plan is supported by changes made in the past 18 months including the introduction of the Barossa cooper Andrew Young to create barrels in the concerted stables. “The idea has worked brilliantly and we will seek professional artisans, like Andrew, to further support our vision,” Mr Baudinet said. Seppeltsfield, established in 1851, is synonymous with fortified wine including the 100-year-old range. However, the owners have worked quickly to reopen the site’s two wine making facilities, including the Gravity Vintage Cellar, to produce super premium wines. Managing director Warren Randall said the current transformations complement Seppelsfield’s hard push to produce premium bulk wines to support the Australian and overseas market. “Seppeltsfield has built a successful premium bulk wine business supplying Australia’s prestige brands,” Mr Randall said. It’s led to the company securing strong export markets, especially to China and will support Seppeltsfield’s increasing customer base. The latest acquisition of predominantly Shiraz vineyard from the Barossa Vines managed investment scheme across the Barossa’s ‘western ranges’ will allow Seppeltsfield to totally control its fruit quality from pruning to picking, which Mr Randall said is essential for the production of super- premium red wine. The move was also intended to improve cash flow to fund the latest developments. Mr Randall felt the purchase was a great sign of faith in the Australian Wine industry, and the Barossa Valley in particular. UNIQUE CHANGES: Cooper Andrew Young is one of the artisans already acquired by the Seppeltsfield Estate Trust to promote the village feel.

    Limit drop rear-view

    LIGHT Regional Council (LRC) will objectagainst a State Government plan to reduce speedlimits on rural roads in its area.

    The State Government last month announced ithad asked the Commissioner of Highways toreduce the speed limit on 49 rural roads from110km/h to 100km/h.

    Of the 49 roads within 100km of Adelaide, fiveare in the LRC area, including Main North Roadand Kapunda to Gawler Road (pictured below).

    At last weeks council meeting, elected membersdecided staff would write to Jennifer Rankine,the current Road Safety Minister, and objectthe proposal.

    Council delegates authority to the ChiefExecutive Officer (who in turn may delegateauthority to the General Manager Infrastructure and Works) to formally write to theMinister for Road Safety objecting against theproposal and citing reasons for Councilsopposition to the proposed speed limitamendments, read the motion.

    The motion without notice was supported byelected members and subsequently carried.

    LRC Infrastructure and Works General

    Manager Richard Dodson said Council had, inconjunction with the Transport Department,reviewed speed limits on specific roads inthe area in 2009.

    This reduction targeted roads of lower standardthat had a 110km/h speed limit and lowered themto 100km/h, he said.

    However, roads such as the Two Wells toGawler Road, Mallala to Gawler Road, Kapundato Gawler Road, Kapunda to Truro Road andMain North Road are of a much higher standardand include wider pavements, suitable horizontaland vertical alignment, hazard protection, sealedshoulders, and in the case of Main North Road,has overtaking lanes.

    Council considers that these roads all have thecharacteristics of other roads throughoutthe state that have the 110km/h speed limitand will not support a reduction of this limiton these roads.

    He said by maintaining the current speedlimits, road users would continue to enjoylower travel times to the metropolitan areasof Adelaide while still living in the LightRegional Council.

    HOMEOWNERS are urged toensure their pool is properly fencedto reduce toddler drownings.

    In the past year, 28 childrenunder the age of five drowned.

    Over the past nine years, almost300 children under five drowned.

    Of these deaths, 60 per cent haveoccurred in the childs own home.

    These damning statistics haveled to the push by Royal LifeSaving to ensure every pool owneris Australia knows the duties andresponsibilities associated withowning a pool.

    Hewett resident Tom Lane(pictured above) embraces the poolsafety message in his home,making his two children takeswimming lessons before they evenstarted building the pool.

    As soon as the pool was in, I hadthe fence up before it even had anywater in it, Mr Lane said.

    We had an inspector visit andcheck all the gates and panels tomake sure everything was right.

    Mr Lane said he and his wifealways supervise children in thepool, including visitors, no matterwhat age they are.

    While the Lane family puts a lotof effort into pool safety, Royal LifeSaving believes that up to 85 percent of Australian pools are not

    fenced or simply do not meetcurrent safety standards, a figureit says needs to be addressed.

    Alistair Baird, executive directorof Royal Life Saving SouthAustralia, warns that for everydrowning death, there are aboutthree hospitalisations, and up totwo of those hospitalised childrenwill suffer a brain injury.

    Children should never be leftalone when they are in, on oraround water and parentsand carers should always bewithin arms reach of theirchildren, he said.

    Parents and carers should takechildren with them if they have toleave an aquatic area.

    Mr Baird warns that while manypeople think their fencing is safe,wear and tear, storm damage orerosion could create a weakness inthe structure, while another majorproblem are the thousands ofpeople who prop open the pool gate,defeating its purpose.

    A PROPOSED communications tower could bebuilt closer to Tanunda under an amendeddevelopment application lodged with LightRegional Council.

    The original application to build the 28-metretower at a Smythe Road property received 62representations from the community, with onlyone of those in favour of the development.

    Vodafone Australia has amended the applicationto move the tower to another location on the sameproperty, about 300 metres closer to Tanunda.

    The change brings the tower 16 metres lower inelevation to reduce visibility and an existingcluster of tall trees would partially screen it.

    Community consultation on the amendeddevelopment application closes with LRC at 5pmtoday, Wednesday, November 2.

    Tower plan change

    Wind farm concerns heardBOTH passionate and assertive pleasfor support to stop the proposed windfarm at Keyneton have been made clearto state parliament member DavidRidgeway.

    On Monday the Leader of theopposition in the Legislative Counciland member of the states Liberal Partyaccepted an invite by members of theEastern Mount Lofty RangesLandscape Guardians to Keyneton Hallwho are desperate to stop the proposeddevelopment of 57 wind turbines.

    Mr Ridgeway, who agreed theproposed site (Sedan Ranges), is notappropriate, said a consistent set up ofguidelines is needed.

    We need to have a definitive policy,he said.

    His chat with about 25 residentsincluded working on guidelines to beused in Victoria, New South Wales andSouth Australia, where wind activity ishigh. He said the would help in their

    decision making for wind farms.Keyneton resident and landowners As part of the gathering, Mid Murray

    councillor David Peake addressed thegroup by saying residents need to takeaction now before its too late.

    It is understood the wind farmdevelopment proposed by Victorianbased company Pacific Hydro will notlodge their application until the newwind power reforms, announced by thestate government, come into effect.

    The reforms seek to provide greaterresponsibility over wind farms tocouncils and with a dramatic reductionin public consultation.

    Originally Pacifi Hydro said theywould lodge their application inSeptember.

    In addition, Mr Ridgeway toldresidents he would consider organisinga deputation with MinisterDevelopment John Rau for residentsconcerns to further voice their concerns.

    Gardens for the future

    Now to build on the solid startSTRONG foundations havebeen set and the job ofimproving the Barossa FilmFestival has begun.

    While everything wentsmoothly for the five-day event,organisers are toying withvarious ideas for the next eventto make it even better, while notnecessarily bigger.

    Festival director Dave de Vriessaid one thing they wanted towork on in particular wasmaintaining a relationshipbetween film makers, the filmand the audience.

    On Saturday night, whichwas as busy as hell, we had a lotof people show up for PunchDrunk and because we had somany of the film makers of the

    particular films being screenedactually in the Chateau, I foundmyself stopping the program anumber of times to tell peoplewhat the next film was andintroduce them, Dave said.

    We did that a number oftimes during the course of theweek and that was reallysuccessful, very popular and isdefinitely something we wouldlike to build on.

    Id also like to see some of themore senior members of theAustralian film industry maybecome along as well, a few ofthose guys, I think I couldprobably interest them in it.

    One of the other things Daveand his team will discuss is thelength of the days and how

    many days the festival will run.Starting on the Saturday at

    10am and then going throughuntil 11pm is a big ask for theaudience, so we would probablybe more inclined to start atmaybe 1pm or something likethat, Dave said.

    The long table lunch dayformat was fine, we wouldntmess with that, but we mightstart the films after theluncheon rather than leadingup to it.

    An industry kick-off night onthe first night worked well, butrather than start on aWednesday and go through theweek, we might start on aThursday and go the Friday andSaturday.

    CHEERS: Andrei Gostin and Fiona De Caux enjoy a glass of wine at the Long Table Luncheon onFriday afternoon at Chateau Tanunda.

    Films light up the night

    THE inauguralBarossa Film Festivalhas been hailed asuccess and eventdirector Dave de Vriessaid everything cametogether perfectly forthe long-awaited event.

    After starting onWednesday, the festivalcontinued through theweek and wound up onrelaxing Sunday finish.

    The wow factor wassomething everybody

    commented on, Davesaid. We were tryingsomething verytechnically difficult,effectively combining afilm festival with agourmet weekend.

    He said theorganisers worked veryhard to highlightChateau Tanunda.

    If we had doneanything on the cheapor done anything lessthan totally honouring

    the Chateau, it wouldhave been a hugedisappointment, butfar from it, everybodythought it was great,Mr de Vries said.

    I think everybodywas really rapt withthe little horrortheatre downstairs inthe barrel hall lit upwith candles, it wasvery popular.

    The feeling was itadded 10 percent to the

    horrific element, so theactual experience itselfwas great.

    He said the eventwould not havehappened without thehelp from so manylocal supporters.

    A lot of the creditgoes to the Chateau,we worked very closelywith them and theymade sure we verymuch felt like wewere at home and

    we very much feltlike we were partof one big team.

    We have had nothingbut the greatestsupport for theChateau from dayone, Dave said.

    The festival eventsheld at Rolf BinderWines also received astrong turnout over thethree days it was used.

    RELAXED: Remigi Rageth and Nikki Pallaras, both from Adelaide, on the Sunken Lawn on Wednesday evening.

    Visitors view onthe film festival

    This is just fantastic. It is one of the bestvenues we have been to and it is so close toAdelaide. We didnt even realise this was theinaugural event. Doug Scroope, actor from Sydney.

    Im very impressed. It is a great idea holdinga regional festival. I think it could quicklygrow in the next few years, they have anamazing set-up. In think South Australiadefinitely needs something like this. Richard Wolstencroft, director of theMelbourne Underground Film Festival.

    This is a great idea. The whole venue isbegging for something like this to happen. Ithink I would definitely come back. I like theidea of supporting regional festivals because Ihave a bit of a connection with ruralAustralia. I just like the idea of having afestival in the heart of Australia. Brendan Guerin, producer and writerfrom Melbourne.

    Traffic hazardTHE roadway aroundTanunda supermarket hasarrows clearly outlining thedirection of travel.

    Replacement busesAS A regular user of theGawler train linereplacement buses I amvery disappointed withTransport ministerscomments and lack ofunderstanding of the issuesconcerning the replacementbuses outlined in theHerald on October 26.

    Her comments state thatsome of the buses do nothave air conditioning andthis has been taken intoaccount with newer busesintegrated duringinterpeak and weekendperiods.

    However upon raising aquery with Metro AdelaideI was advised via email thefollowing; As there are notenough vehicles in thecurrent fleet to meet thisdemand, many older,recently retired buses arerequired to enable capacity

    for the 9000 passengersthat use the Gawler trainservice each weekday.

    Metro Adelaide went on tosay, the additional vehiclesare not air conditioned butSouthlink are providing airconditioned vehicles whenpossible. On night andweekend services allvehicles used for thesubstitute bus services areair-conditioned.

    The minister strategicallyneglected to mention thatthe some that did nothave air conditioning wasactually most and thatnewer buses were only usedduring some interpeakperiods. In summary,Gawler line commutershave been given buses thathave been deemedunsuitable and too old formetropolitan route use andsecondly, until April nextyear, passengers travellingon the Gawler line will nothave air conditioning atany time during the daywhen the 9000 passengersquoted are using the buses.Only the privileged few willhave air conditioning atnight and on weekends.

    Temperatures havealready nudged the oldcentury aboard these buseson relatively mild days of34C. What is in store forlocal commuters in thepeak of summer?

    Peter AmeyFreeling

    Water concernI SEE that the councilwants to start chargingfarmers for the water theyuse (Herald, October 26).

    I think they need to standup against the parasites incouncil who simply areramping up all charges tokeep them illegally in veryhighly overpaid jobs at thefarmers expense and thatapplies to all of us as well.We are being ripped off.

    The farmers must quotethe September 3, 1988referendum which was heldand asked the questionshould councils bepoliticised.

    Every town and city inAustralia said no by amargin of over 75 per cent.That was simply thrownaside by these illegallyelected politicians and theAustralian Constitutionwas totally ignored. Thatswhy we have a referendumto find out what the peoplewant. Therefore, councils donot have the power nor thelaw to charge fines, raisetaxes or any other thingbecause of that referendum.Check it out for yourself.

    Secondly, if the arrogantpoliticians in the illegalcouncils do not take noticeof that, try this avenue.

    A very switched onengineer friend of mine inQueensland did this whenthey tried to charge him forthe water on his farm.

    That is, when they senthim a bill for the water (afigure plucked out of theair) he simply wrote back tothem and said OK, I agreeit is your water, but I amsending you this bill forstoring your water on myproperty.

    The bill was made out tothe same price theycharged him and he heardno more from them.

    Dont give in to theseparasites who just simplywant all our money so thatthey can live a verycomfortable lifestyle.

    Politicians of every ilkhave long forgotten theyare public servants (I callthem serpents) and who inpast history has paid hisservant more than he earnshimself?

    Farmers, take the cudgelto them.

    Government issueI AM trying really hard tomake some sense of thisfederal government exportcertification reformpackage, and the impact itwill have on successfulsmall businesses likeWintulichs. Why would anygovernment want toundermine its smallbusinesses like this unlessit was forced to?

    This initiative has got

    globalisation and WorldTrade Organisationbullying written all overit. Do countries that areexporting contaminated,suspect food into Australiahave imposts like this puton them to help pay forquarantine inspections?

    Are the growers in thesecountries as heavilyregulated as ours?

    It appears to me andmany other people thatthese so-called free tradeagreements that the federalgovernment is seeminglybeing forced into underduress and against thewishes of the majority ofthe population, are not alevel playing field.

    I am also deeplyconcerned that if thequarantine service onlyinspects five per cent ofincoming food products,and is finding problemswith some of that, thenwhat the hell is in the other95 per cent?

    We need to increase oursupport for our local foodproducers otherwise eventhat choice may disappear.

    Debate continuesIt SHOULD be obvious whymy previous letter did notaddress refugees Iaddressed MarilynShepherds scurrilous andhypocritical abuse of

    others. I, not Ms Shepherd,determine my topic, and forall Ms Shepherd knows theHerald editor may havechosen not to publish myview on refugees.

    Ms Shepherd makesmuch of a little blog I amalleged to rely on for myinformation. Whatincredible arrogance topresume she knows what Iread. The quote I hateAustralia was from a letterpublished in TheAustralian, and the oneabout her remarkablerecovery from severe illhealth (I trust sheinformed Centrelink) wasfrom her contribution to OnLine Opinion, an e-journalof social and politicaldebate. I note MsShepherd did not addresseither of these quotes.

    Ms Shepherd and her ilktell us that the boat peopleare not doing anythingillegal. Well, they certainlycome here by illegal means proof sufficient being thecrew members fined andjailed for bringing them and hence they are aidingand abetting an illegalactivity. And that, MsShepherd, is a crime.

    Barossa incidents

    Is the game changing? Its pointing out theblatantly obvious to say the wine industry hasbeen doing it tough, but in the past week wemight have seen fortunes changing.

    The Jimmy Watson trophy went to a Tasmanianwine made by a young guy with a rich Barossaheritage, one of the most influential wine critics inthe world raced around the country and declaredthat people who had written off Australiaspotential as an exciting wine continent werewrong and then Seppeltsfield pulled out thecheckbook and put an exclamation point on thedeath of managed investment scheme vineyards inBarossa.

    Did any of this make any difference to Barossagrapegrowers, cellarhands, sales and marketingteams, label printers, lab rats or contractpruners? Yes and no.

    A Tassie Shiraz winning the biggest wine awardin the country shows that cool climate wines arenow real challenges to the Barossas assumedupper hand with this variety and ourwinemakers are going to have to pull their

    socks up and deliver more than an old vinestory to keep up.

    Its cool for international wine scribes to talk upAustralian wine again a big change from the pastcouple of years where almost all Aussie reds weredeclared fat, jammy, high alcohol bruisers (whichis sadly still true for some Barossa wines). This isgood news for the gurus charged with sellingBarossa wine to the world.

    And what will happen now that Seppeltsfield hasan extra 13,000 to 26,000 tonne of Shiraz at it'sdisposal for 2011? How will the gravity cellarcope? It wont have to deal with all of it, of course,but whether or not the old Barossa Vines contractsare still in place with new owners will haveripple effects for other small Barossa growersone way or the other.

    None of the events of the last week might bedirectly linked to rises in grape prices, confidencein wine sales that creates new jobs in wineries orincreased demand for graphic designers to workon refreshed labels, but just maybe people will beable to look back in a couple of years as we enterthe next boom and say hey, I reckon thingsstarted to turn after that Barossa kid won theJimmy in Tassie, that poncey James Suckling saidwe Ossies were alright and Wazza Randall boughtall those MIS vines.

    AN ADELAIDEhistorian has capturedexperiences fromKapunda and districtsduring WWI andplaced them into abook for others toappreciate.

    Peter Donovan,originally fromKapunda, spent thepast eight yearsresearching facts fromthe past, whichinvolved men andwomen.

    The book, Storm - AnAustralian countrytown and World War I,came about by Petersfascination ofresearching his ownfamilys history, withhis Kapunda ancestorshaving fought in thewar. Peter said whileresearching his familytree he came acrossother soldiers andnurses and theirstories which led to thecreation of the book.

    He said the story ofthe war can also beconfusing. I hope thisbook helps to clarify it.

    Peter explained, TheKapunda response tothe call to arms wasremarkable.

    More than 300 menand six women fromthe town and districtserved in armed forcesduring WW1; as manyas 65 never survived.

    He said Stormhighlights how muchcountry townsmattered in 1914, withthe formation of groups

    such as Red Cross,Progress Association,the League of LoyalWomen, cheer up hutsand entertainment toname a few.

    His journey to createthe book also led him toresearch The KapundaHerald and headoverseas to viewcemeteries in GreatBritain, the MiddleEast and Europewhere much of hiswork and photosfeature in the book.

    The publication alsoincludes personalletters, photos and postcards, lent to Peter byKapunda residents, toprovide snippets of thepast. Storm is availableat Bull Creek Books,Tanunda and TimelessBook, Angaston, withcopies available in theKapunda VisitorInformation Centre,Main Street.

    Owner Sam Pansini has more than20 years experience in the buildingand tiling industry and brings thatexperience to rural South Australia.

    As a local Kapunda resident, Samwas aware of the lack of choice in thequality tile and flooring market.

    Why should people have to drive allthe way into Adelaide? By openingTiles for Life, I am pleased to be ableto offer a comprehensive range ofproducts, all meeting Australianstandards, right here in Kapunda,Sam said. Come in and see us andhave a browse though our showroomdisplays.

    Tiles for Life offers a huge range ofcolours and styles including a heritageselection.

    Sam Pansini also has a passion foreco-friendly products, hence hisinterest in bamboo flooring, and isconstantly sourcing and researchingproducts such as the Biogre greenceramic tiles.

    The Biogres ranges aremanufactured to comply with UNI ENISO 14001.

    Sounds a bit complicated, but Samexplains it simply and easily.

    This means that they use a certainpercentage of recovered waste fromother production, that they optimisethe use of water in the factory processreducing discharge to zero, useelectrical energy the majority of whichis produced in-house through the use

    of the most modern cogenerationsystems, and use recyclable materialfor packaging.

    Sams experience in the industry hasafforded him the knowledge ofexcellent suppliers and through thesehe can offer builders a range ofspeciality items and solutions as wellas benefit of his advice.
