Winery Experience; Penfolds Magill Estate

Penfolds is one of Australia’s most famed and respected winemakers noted worldwide for its Grange. Since the beginning in 1844, the success of Penfolds has been driven by generations of visionaries and innovators and the merging of science, art and innovation.

Penfolds offers three unique wine experiences for wine lovers offered at either the Barossa Valley estate (built in 1911) or the Magill Estate; located right on Adelaide’s doorstep an easy 8kms from the CBD.

In addition to the Cellar Door at Magille Estate is also a fine dining restaurant and kitchen which overlooks the serene vineyard.

We recommend you visit both the Magille Estate and Penfolds Barossa Valley should time permit and consider one of the following three superb experiences:
