James' Review

Founded in 1988 by Tony and Susie Parkinson, Penny's Hill produces high quality Shiraz (Footprint and The Skeleton Key) from its close-planted McLaren Vale estate, also the source of the Edwards Road Cabernet Sauvignon and The Experiment Grenache. Malpas Road and Goss Corner Vineyards complete the estate holdings, providing fruit for Cracking Black Shiraz and Malpas Road Merlot. White wines (The Agreement Sauvignon Blanc and The Minimalist Chardonnay) are sourced from ‘estates of mates' in the Adelaide Hills. Also includes the Black Chook and Thomas Goss Brands. Penny's Hill cellars are located at the historic Ingleburne Farm, which also houses the award-winning The Kitchen Door restaurant and Red Dot Gallery. Noted for its distinctive ‘red dot' packaging. Exports to all major markets.


From its first production of 141 cases in of 1995 Shiraz, Penny's Hill has established a fine reputation for outstanding vineyards from which acclaimed estate wines have emerged.

Winemaker Alexia Roberts delivers with fine, full bodied, fruit driven wines using premium estate grown fruit from some of the best quality vineyards in the McLaren Vale region. A meticulous approach every step of the way, from the narrow planted, low yielding vineyards and throughout the entire winemaking process, Penny's Hill wines deliver an ultimate balance of texture, complexity and interest.
