What a great way to spend an hour - enjoying some lovely Coonawarra wines while finding out about the wines and the region from a very friendly and knowledgeable staff member. Would be very easy to spend longer but there are other wineries to visit. Love the paintings by a local Edenhope artist.

We visited during the Penola arts festival and found a really interesting display from a local Edenhope artist. The wines were great and the staff were informative and interesting.

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!
