We visited this winery on a 37 degree day and the staff were very welcoming, even with our dog who was catered for. Lovely bubbles and great variety of reds as you would expect from this area of the world. They also have samples of local olive oils, vinegars and dukkah.

We called in for a quick cellar visit and tasting and were quite surprised; very friendly and informative staff and great wines. We try to stay away from the big commercial vineyards and this was a great find. If you are in the area call in, you won't be disappointed; excellent wines and good value.

We pulled in to Penley after seeing thei sign from the main drag, though it wasnt really on our list. We loved it - great relaxed environment and a really strong and varied wine range. We bought up big here during their museum stock sale. Staff we so friendly, this really enhanced our visit. Definitely stop in here.

A lovely setting down a long winding track, this cellar door is in a relaxing spot. We came in to try the wines and collect a cheeseboard tasting plate. We tried the reds and enjoyed the Tolmer the best. The staff member serving us offered little information about the wines and chose to watch us taste the wine in silence... More

Good range of freshly opened wines available for tasting. Friendly and knowledgeable lady behind the counter. This cellar door has a good cross section of local wines at varying price points. Taste carefully as there are some bargains hiding in the mix!

Great! They are one of the very few that have the entrance really well signed....banners flying so we decided to visit. Staff 'Bronwyn' was very friendly and helpful and great fun! Some really scrumptious wines with our favourites being: Phoenix Cab Sav 2006, Condor Shiraz Cab, The Reserve 2004, Cab Franc and Steynin Cab Sav 2010 but the best by... More

We pulled up to the building and were skeptical as we were the only ones in the winery. However, we had a fantastic tasting and chat with the lovely lady behind the counter. The wines have great stories behind them which made them so much more fun to drink and buy. Thanks Penleys!

We stopped at this winery for a little tasting and ended up staying for quite a while just because the woman who was pouring the wine was so fun to talk to. We really had a great time. The grounds are beautiful and the cellar door itself is very pretty and welcoming. The wines are excellent. The prices were so... More

Visited this winery on the weekend and was very impressed. The cellar door is gorgeous, lots to see and read. The wines themselves are delicious and I would love to have come home with more bottles. I highly recommend the Merlot. The lady that was serving at the cellar door was excellent. She was very friendly and helpful and was... More
