Barossa Valley - Seppeltsfield Winery -

built in the early 1800s by Oscar Benno Seppelt who is said to have turned slightly insane after spending hours confined in his private retreat located behind the trophy cellar. If you go on one of their ghost tours held in the summer months you feel as if you are being watched all the time. Walking through the barrel tunnel you can hear loud footsteps above you but there is no floor. after 7 pm the lights will not turn on in the lower levels. the ghostly apparition of a made is said to haunt the homestead and tunnels. If you walk past the distillery and other cellars you can hear screaming in the vineyards and see glowing in the top tower of the distillery. whilst walking past the Vinegar factory you can hear the machines working and wheels cranking and the sounds of steam blasts, but the factory has been locked for over 150 years. during the tours you can go into Oscars retreat which is so small it can only fit a maximum of 4-5 people who even have to bow their heads to walk in. in the Mausoleum of the Seppelt family you can see the eerie bloodstain on the walls that is still wet on the anniversary of their deaths. due to this the Mausoleum was locked and bolted shut in the late 20th century. Moans and whispering can be heard in the dinning hall, which you can hire for functions. and staff and tourists in the garden have heard rifle shots. These ghost tours are not for the faint hearted and no tapes or projectors or computers are used at all. not recommended for children under 10 year old but there are tours during the day. Walk through the gardens as you hear stories of near death experiences and listen to the screams and shots through the air. many tourists have told of cold spots and being pushed by invisible forces. others have told of feeling depressed near the gardens and even being frightened into screaming fits.

I didn't know they ran them. Thanks for this info.
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

I am assuming he killed his family then?
