Enjoyed a very nice lunch at this very pretty winery. Tapas style sharing dishes very well prepared and presented. Home baked bread and fresh local produce. Enjoyed a nice semillon Sauvignon Blanc with lunch.

Stopped here just for the wine tasting. Staff very friendly and informative about their wines. 3 levels to choose from - good, better and best, priced accordingly. We enjoyed all the wines we tasted, disliking none. Purchased 3 bottles to take home. Found on Dan Murphy's the Penny's Hill shiraz was same price as we purchased at the winery. Cellar... More

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

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.

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
