    Wine tasting at Pfeiffers
    We had a great hour or so wine tasting and looking around the grounds. Staff were lovely, knowledgeable and we of course left with 2 bottles of wine and 3 bottles of sticky sweet fortifieds. The grounds are amazing - especially the Sunday Creek bridge that holds functions and the river is full of turtles and carp.
    Hello RodnJude, Thank you for coming to visit Pfeiffer Wines and for your terrific review after your visit. I am glad you have a selection of our wines to enjoy over the next little while. The Turtles are about to go into their winter hibernation but sadly the carp are always there. Come back in the springtime and you may be "pfortunate" enough to see a migration of baby turtles coming out of their nests and of course you can top up on your "pfine" Pfeiffer wines. Till next time, Kind regards, Robyn Pfeiffer. PFEIFFER WINES.

    Great wines, great hosting, great experience
    This was the best wine tasting experience that I've experienced. I wrote down the name of our host but I lost the piece of paper. Her name started with a K. (Sorry). She put in so much effort to make our visit so memorable. She gave us blind tastings and showed us how much difference the type of wine glass makes in the taste of a wine. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about the wines she was serving. Aside from our great host - the wines were great as well! I walked out with over a case and signed up as a member! I'll be back again!
    Hello Michael, Firstly thank you for posting your terrific review from your recent visit to Pfeiffer Wines. Your “hostess with the mostess” would have been Kaija, pronounced ‘Cy arh.’ Thanks for the clues which made it possible for me to work out. Also, welcome to our “pfabulous” wine club. You will get so many treats throughout your journey with us. Our daughter, Jen is a brilliant Winemaker. And that is not just because I am her Mum. As you know already, all the wines she makes that you have tried, are terrific. Enjoy them all and we look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards, Robyn Pfeiffer. PFEIFFER WINES.

    Red October outing
    Best wine tasting anywhere! The variety from Riesling/Pinot Grigio to Cab Sav/Shiraz, delicious. Fortified ***** Jen Pfeiffer (24 hours before O/S trip), extremely generous with her time, chatted to the eight ‘Red October’ crew about all things wine. Fascinating. Janice looked after our tastings. All left with plenty of “reminders”🍷for tasting with our family and friends. Do yourself a favour! Also arrange a bus or designated driver👍
    Hello David L, Robyn Pfeiffer here, Jen’s Mum but nowhere near as “pfamous” as Jen which is “pfine” by me. Thanks for your “pfantastic” review after your visit to Pfeiffer Wines...and for the photo too. A picture speaks a thousand words. I guess Jen took the photo cause she isn’t in it. Janice is such a lovely complement to our Pfeiffer Wines Team. She is kind, generous, knowledgeable and loves our wines..."a hostess with the mostess." Thanks for coming. We look forward to next October for your return visit. Kind regards, Robyn Pfeiffer. PFEIFFER WINES.

Wow! Wow! Wow!
Three wows for location, wines and staff.
My wife and I have just enjoyed a memorable afternoon at Pfeiffer Wines .
After a tasting session, lead by the very knowledgeable Alex, we took a bottle of Rosé down to the Creek.
We saw lots of turtles and many large carp ( but unfortunately no platypus) in addition to the many birds.
When we returned to the winery to buy another bottle (we are limited to how much we can carry back to the UK) we were greeted by Jen who gave us some insights to what they do here.
Highly recommended. Our best winery visit by far this trip.

Hello Chris H, What can I say in reply but THANKS, THANKS, THANKS for your WOW, WOW, WOW review of our winery, Pfeiffer Wines. I am so proud of my Team for giving you the wonderful experience you enjoyed here and meeting Jen was a special bonus. Do you know there are some of our wines available in the UK? I am not sure if they are the ones you loved here on your visit, so best to contact the winery to find out if you would like some when you get back home. Thanks again for visiting and for writing your WOW review. Kind regards, Robyn Pfeiffer. PFEIFFER WINES.

Hello jcjdavies, Thank you for your TA review following your recent visit to Pfeiffer Wines. We are glad you enjoyed your visit despite the weather. Come back to visit your daughter in Autumn. It was lovely she was with you. As she would know, we have a very close association with Bilsons. The Cab Merlot is a beautiful wine. I call it " a blend of friends" The two grape varieties are great together. Hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Robyn Pfeiffer. PFEIFFER WINES

Pfeiffer Wines are located on the banks the mighty Murray River, in the Rutherglen wine region. It'. Pfeiffer has earned an international reputation for producing fine wines, I especially like the fruity whites. The best way to experience Pfeiffer's range is to book a Seated Tasting. It takes around an hour, bookings are essential.

We had such a lovely time! Great for families, accommodating about us tasting their lovely wines so that our kids could play outside in the cubby house and toys. A perfect wine tasting experience with thoughtful staff who paid attention to our tastes in wine.

Hello Kerith H, Thank you for your "pfantastic" TA review about your recent visit to Pfeiffer Wines. We love welcoming families and seeing children enjoy simple things like our cubby house and sandpit. You will have to bring the children back in the summer to feed the turtles who love welcoming families too, especially those who feed them.😊 We have the "specially formulated turtle food" so call in at the Cellardoor to get some. Till then, Kind regards, Robyn Pfeiffer. PFEIFFER WINES.

Historic Pfeiffer Wines is a stalwart of the Rutherglen region, which is internationally famous for its wines. In the mid-19th century, this was a gold mining area. When the gold ran out, some enterprising souls turned to producing wine. Some wineries are in the 6th generation of ownership. The vignerons have a deep sense of history. Visitors to Pfeiffers Wines can partake in a Seated Tasting Experience at a minimal cost, and try some award-winning wines.

Hello 619jeffry Many thanks for your 5star review following your visit to Pfeiffer Wines. Our visitors love the seated wine experience exploring our huge array of wines. Our Sunday Creek Vineyard was originally an experimental plot of many rare and interesting grape varieties which enhances the wine tasting experience at Pfeiffer Wines. Rutherglen is a beautiful wine region to visit and we all hope to welcome you back soon. Kind regards, Robyn Pfeiffer. PFEIFFER WINES.

We booked a $10 one-hour seated tasting, and we were blown away! One hour? It took the best part of two hours to get through the 33 (that’s right 33!) wines on the tasting menu. All accompanied by the Cheese Platter, of course.
Jeff, our sommelier, was wonderful, quickly picking up our taste preferences and explaining the different wines and vintages with humour and style.
And the setting is absolutely beautiful. We had live music playing on the lawns as we enjoyed our wines among the barrels.
I’ve done plenty of wine tastings all over, but this was unquestionably the very best. Thanks guys!
Oh, also, the wines are fantastic! We joined their wine club and picked up more than a couple of cases.
