Excellent Wine and atmosphere

Visited Penny's Hill during the Sea & Vines weekend, tasted some very good wine and the acoustic set added to the ambiance and the overall experience of the afternoon.

Booked for lunch ordered the Tomahawk steak. Firstly we were told it would take a while as it was 1.2kg however 1 hour and 15 minutes later it arrived. I must say it was disappointing half of it was fat, the rest tough and no flavour..not what you would expect for $95. On the positive our friend had the steak... More

My friend and I booked to have a food platter for lunch prior to our visit to "A Day on the Green Concert". The food platter was exceptional especially as my friend was a vegetarian. The selection of meats, salads and accomplements were fabulous. There was plenty to eat for the pair of us, along with some great wines. A... More

Great selection of wines for all budgets. Amazing food and various prices. Deli was open as well as their main restaurant. Restaurant is pricey however some amazing local food on display. It is good however can get a little busy.

Hi Tim, My thanks for your comments - We aim to strike every budget, whether it's a deli platter to share for $25 or a full restaurant meal paired with our premium wines at $90 a head. We're very lucky that our chefs pride themselves on finding such local produce - last week's desserts had locally foraged blackberries and local... More

A welcome is always waiting at Penny's Hill. There are several different labels to choose from, depending on your budget and palate. There is no charge for tasting. The wines are all well made with no obvious faults.

Was a little busy for a time in the tasting area, however I must say that theer were sufficient staff to handle. An... More

This was a short visit for tastings and when we arrived a very large group of young ladies were there for a hens day out. Although they were very loud they were having great fun and the staff were great helping them to enjoy the day. The bride to be was stunning. We still managed some tastings and thanks to... More

Didn't even get to try to wines. We were a group of 8 with only 6 tasting. We were the only ones there at the time and told that we should have booked. She agreed to do us a favour by serving us but was very unfriendly and quite scathing when questioned about the wines.

I went to the McLaren Vale with a few friends to visit some wineries. It was our first time to the McLaren Vale and I was particularly excited about visiting Penny's Hill. Penny's Hill cellar door sells for a few different wine labels (I think it is three different labels, but I not 100% sure) and one of these labels... More

The waitress mistook our order for bread and brought olives as well which we sent back. The order for the main course also was incorrect where we got a dish not ordered and the correct dish took some time to arrive at the table. Not only was the restaurant pricey for the meals ( $36.00 for a main with vegetables... More
