Join us to taste the wines of Penfolds, Australia's most famous winery! Penfolds is Australia's most famous wine producer, best known for its flagship wine Grange, one of the most acclaimed wines in the world.
Penfolds was founded in 1844 when Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold and his family arrived in Australia from England. He paid £1200 for 500 acres (200 hectares) of prime land in what was then called Mackgill and is now apart of Adelaide surburbia as Magill. He planted it with cuttings sourced from France, with the intention of making medicinal wine. The company has extensive vineyard holdings located across the various winegrowing regions of South Australia. Some of these are among the most iconic properties in the country, including Magill Estate, and the Kalimna and Koonunga Hill vineyards in the northern Barossa.
