Penfolds Magill Cellar Door

The Penfolds Estate at Magill is just a few minutes drive from the centre of Adelaide and boasts one of the most interesting and and informative tours I have had the pleasure to experience.

The visit coupled the Heritage Tour with the Super Premium tasting.

Unlike other well established and grand cellar doors, Penfolds Magill seemed to treat everyone with as much respect as they deserved. I have been to numerous cellar does across South Australia and have been disappointed on many occasions that the manager or cellar door operator looked as us with distain and loftiness. I was very pleasantly surprised that this WAS NOT the case at Penfolds.

A big company standards with a boutique approach.

Our party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely encourage all wine loving visitors in Adelaide to pay them a visit to learn about what an integral part of South Australian wine culture and heritage Penfolds really is.
