“Treat yourself to a wonderful tasting and tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The family bought me a tasting and tour experience and it is one of the best things that I have done. Starting at the cellar door whilst waiting for other tour members to arrive, I sampled a couple of wines. A very knowledgeable guide took us through the whole process of the winery, including the old Penfold home. Then we went down into the cellars below ground where a table was laid waiting for us. Cheese and biscuits and a selection of fine wines, including the famous Grange were set before us. At the end, we were given a substantial discount on any wines that we purchased. It was a lovely experience, one which I am keen to repeat.

“Ripped Off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Booked for 12 and although the torrential rain that day stopped 2 people attending we were charged for their 2 meals (although no extra servings were presented to us). Were not talking a small amount the restaurant bill was in excess of $1300. Manager contacted me after I complained and gave me some story about the management changing at that time. I was promised another complimentary meal for everyone involved and when the time time to deliver it, it never happened. Contacted him again and emails & calls were never returned. From that experience and everybgody we all knew who learned of the experience we all had. I would say they had 2000+ people who would never attend there.

“Fine dining at it's best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Save up before you come here for a very special occasion but once you do get here, do not hold back! Experience a different wine with each course, as recommended on the menu. I'm so glad Adelaide has a venue like this for truly exquisite and special occasions. Get there before sunset so you can watch the vineyard change colours as the light fades.
