      Penfolds Barossa Valley Cellar Door
      Stop: 60 minutes - Admission included
      Make your own way to Penfolds Barossa Valley Cellar Door for your morning or afternoon winemaking session. As you start your 1-hour experience in the Winemaker's Laboratory, hear from your expert instructor about Penfolds' beginnings in 1844 at the Magill Estate in the Adelaide Hills. The winery then opened the Barossa Valley location in 1911 and greatly expanded its production here in the 1970s as the number of vineyards increased in the Barossa Valley region. After receiving an overview, delve into the details of winemaking. Learn the features of different wines and how to go about developing a blend that shines. Using the provided grenache, shiraz and mourvedre varieties — the same ones that make up Penfolds' renowned Bin 138 wine — apply the art and science of winemaking into the creation of your blend. Your instructor answers any questions that you may have and assists you throughout the blending process. Once you have mastered your recipe, your wine is bottled and presented to you to take home. At the end of your 1-hour winemaking class, you may want to see more of the estate on your own. You can sample premium wines in the tasting room or stroll around the grounds before continuing on to your next destination.

      Nice personnel but bad value for money
      Very very nice and competent personnel took us through a wine and chocolate pairing. Fun to be at Penfolds but - boring location/room. - tasting 3 wines and small pieces of chocolate for $40 is too expensive compared to what you get on other cellar doors They are pushing the corporate brand too far. Went to another tasting in the area and got 8 great wines at a fabulous location for $20 and when we bought one bottle for $45 they even dropped charges for the tasting

      Still my old school favourite place in Barossa, though with a touch of new!
      It's been over 15 years since our last visit but it hasn't changed. The oldest and most premium wines in my home cellar are still Penfolds. The museum vintages available are awesome. The tasting we did was awesome. Although pricey, I put up the cash for a taste of 2019 Quantum and 2018 Superblend B for the experience. Both were excellent and still a bit pricey for me but now I can appreciate why. Joined the Kalimna Club which is handy because you can choose what you want when so many wine clubs limit your choices. The metal membership card was a very nice touch too...

      Pleased to have picked Penfolds!
      Pros: - Gemma! Thank you! You made our visit today! - our group had a mix of the standard tasting and the ‘ultimate’ experience, this was handled with the upmost of ease and grace. Phenomenally executed! - The wines on offer for the ultimate tasting are out of this world! Highly HIGHLY recommend for any wine enthusiast wanting a special treat! - value for money on the $10 tasting, most of the rest of my group had this one, and it seemed to be great value! Helped out amazingly by Gemma offering us the GGF tawny! Wow! Amazing! Thank you!!! Cons: - I don’t even want to complain but my only one would be that the place has an airport feel. Without the amazing service I’d worry as to what the place might feel like! We were very lucky though this didn’t worry us at all! Thank you so much Penfolds, but mostly Gemma! That was just brilliant service and the most wonderful tasting experience! They are lucky to have you!

      A taste of Grange
      Annie and the team provided a really enjoyable experience. It was great to get so much context on the wines we were tasting and the privilege to try Grange. The book to keep your wine notes is a lovely touch. The tips and advice on the region for our stay was greatly appreciated.

      Where is the good wine!!
      Penfold a giant that live off its name. Tasted 5 of their wines with price starting from $50 up to $130, none of them was satisfying and tasted like a $16 bottle from BWS. The only decent one was the $130 that I would have pay max $20/bottle. Looks like you pay just for the name and that it is a disgrace, especially when you actually can go in others wineries around and with $35 buy excellent wines 10 times better than theirs. A suggestions from a commoner leave Penfolds to the nobility, pretty sure that their even more expensive wines are amazing, just not affordable for the normal people, and plenty of other value for money option around.

      Disappointing!
      We were excited to visit one of Australia's iconic wineries. But... when we stepped inside, we were so disappointed in what awaited us. It was rather sterile and uninviting. Apparently, we should have visited the winery in Adelaide!

      Penfolds has lost its soul
      It once felt like you were drinking with friends. Now all the staff do is talk about what the wine means to them. Do not bother paying for the $100 tasting unless you only want a thimble full of each. Also a lot of their wine tastes mass produced. We went a year ago and when you bought wine the tasting fee was waived. I think if you buy their most expensive wine there should be an exception to the rule. Lastly, Dan Murphy’s sell most of their wine cheaper!

      Thank you Gayle!
      We would like to thank Gayle for her time and attention during our wine tasting. Gayle advised us that she had only been working at Penfolds for a short time, however that did not show. Her wine knowledge was extensive and she had a warm and welcoming presence. Thank you Gayle, for making our quick visit so memorable. The facility was clean and beautifully presented. We will certainly be back.

      Staff very friendly and helpful I’m sure they were very knowledgeable about their products gave us the option for them to go through the process of the Gin or just proceed with very clear directions on the menu, the menu though limited was great it is mainly pizza but delicious pizzas and a few side options

      Disappointed
      Paid $150 for a Taste of Grange. Was really disappointed only given one taste of Grange ! Was expecting more than one . Also the location is in a dingy shopping center , such a let down after going to other wineries . If they had actual photos on the website and full disclosure that there was only one Grange , we would not have booked .

      Wine tasting
      Decided to swing by the Barossa. We went of Easter Friday so not much open but we found Penfolds. Little odd as it is in a shopping complex type area. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Tasting menu was $10 per person but waived if purchase was made. Delicious wines, we purchased a couple of bottles to take home.

      10/10 for Penfolds
      We are wine tasting newbies and were a little intimidated at first of a "Penfolds" tasting, but Gemma was so friendly and made us feel very comfortable for our wine tasting. She was very informative about the wines, the vineyards and the history of the brand and made our experience very enjoyable. (Oh, and the wine was lovely of course!) Highly recommend.

      Customised wine tasting with knowledgeable host.
      Fantastic experience - Alanna was so knowledgeable and tailored a tasting experience just for us with some very special wines that we would not have ordinarily tried. So great to sample wines only available at the cellar door.

      Compared to the old cellar door, things now look all new and fresh. The place can be busy but the staff do well to keep people moving through the door. Worth a visit to the Penfolds Cellar Door

    Was our last visit to a cellar door, and we were looking forward to it. Got seated quite quickly had the first wine poured to taste. We then sat for 20 minutes and no one came to see us for the second tasting. In the end we gave up and just bought a bottle of what we wanted a left. We mentioned that we had given up on the tasting after waiting for so long, and the care factor was zero.
    Over our few visits to the Barossa, I’ve found the smaller wineries are far better to visit, and the larger ones are far more commercial and not particularly customer focused.

    Such a great morning learning about the history of Penfolds and their wines. Our host was lovely, informative and personal. Also enjoyed some tastings after our class, and the staff could not have been more kind. Would definitely recommend this experience to friends.

    One of my favourite cellar doors.

    We arrived in tracksuit pants and holiday wear and there was nil judgement. Friendly and open we sat for a great tasting which included a taste of grange.

    Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience so much more - will be back again next visit!

    We had a girls weekend in Barossa recently & we popped into Penfolds Cellar Door for a tasting after being at Steinys Metwurst next door. I'd been there before but wanted to show my friends. We were met with the lovely Cyra who delivered one of the best customer service experiences I've had (& I pride myself in giving them too)! We connected with her straight away & she was very accommodating, friendly & fun! Being in the Industry also, she gave us several tastings & even included St Henri & The Grange!!! We had a great tasting & bought several wines..Thank you Cyra, you're a gem to this company 🌟🌟

    Such a great experience and our host Annie was fantastic. Had a lot of fun making our own wine and learning about the region. Also did a tasting with Vicki who had lots of knowledge to share. Annie and Vicki both had great recommendations for lunch and other cellar doors to visit. Would recommend the experience to anyone. Couldn’t speak highly enough of the whole experience!
