A great location catering for 50 people for a 60 th birthday celebration. With the family of 12 staying on the property and only a 5 minute walk to the restaurant and everyone else a short taxi drive the location proved excellent. The menu was exciting and different and the food chosen delicious, I had a slow cooked pig's cheek... More

The Jaguar Drivers Club of SA and the Triumph Stag Owners Club attended Penny's Hill/The Kitchen Door as part of the McLaren Vale Vintage and Classic event held on 28 April 2013. An outdoor catered lunch was provided for members in an idyllic setting with tables with tablecloths, real cutlery and plates being an added attraction. A gourmet BBQ and... More

We spent a couple of fantastic hours at Penny's Hill on a recent Monday lunchtime wine tasting and savoring the delights of fantastic food. It was really great to be able to sit and do wine tasting from the entire Penny's Hill, Mr Riggs and Black Chook wine range whilst devouring a chefs grazing platter. There was no rush, with... More

Penny's Hill is a very nice winery, with a beautiful area and an attentive and smiling staff. We've been there only for one wine tasting and liked it very much. The rose was especially good. They have a restaurant that we wanted to try, but it wasn't lunch time...We recommend if you're in Mc Laren Vale.

Myself and my family had the pleasure of visiting Penny's Hill today and loved it. Really good service and the wines were really good as well. The kids loved the chooks and we can't wait to visit again some day.

We loved the wine there and we had a beautiful lunch.The wait staff bent over backwards to accommodate us and we had a really enjoyable afternoon there. Would highly recommend it as a definite place to visit in McLaren Vale. Make sure you book ahead for lunch. Fantastic table service.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Adelaide and we really loved it. The food was really good; we have some mixed appetizer, gnocchi with vegetables and lamb brasato, ice cream and of course a bottle of red wine. The service was also great: our waitress was very nice and helped us out a lot in understanding all... More

We stopped in here for a luncheon platter and were happy with the produce but unimpressed overall with the wines. There is a good deal of great wine on offer in this area and this place is simply avergage

Even though this is a fairly big operation you still get personal service here. We enjoyed the tasting at the cellar door so much that we came back for lunch a few days later. I had the platter which included olives, frittata, pâté and cheese and was very tasty. Would not have minded some more protein with that. Speaking of... More

We visited Penny's Hill yesterday. Fantastic wines - Penny's Hill and Mr Riggs. Friendly staff, nice grounds, stunning artwork. Child friendly with a toy box available in the cellar area. Restaurant looks beautiful and we hope to return one day to try a degustation dinner. I'm actually enjoying a Mr Rigg's Shiraz while writing this.
