Penfolds Magill Estate

Adelaide & Surrounds

From the southern city outskirts to Gawler in the north, and bounded by the Adelaide Hills in the east, it contains the Adelaide Plains wine region, which is centred around Angle Vale and Virginia. Adelaide has numerous food and wine events throughout the year, and is home to the National Wine Centre of Australia. Major activities include the 'Cellar Door Wine Festival' (Feb) and the 'Tasting Australia Festival', which is an eight day event held every two years in April and May. Another highlight is the nine day 'Adelaide Food & Wine Festival' (April) which is described as "A grassroots celebration of South Australia's unique food and wine culture".

Eddie McDougall's Adelaide Hills Favourites

Author: Eddie McDougall

Created 13th Jan, 2016

Adelaide Hills has the best of both worlds - both infamous wine institutions and urban, innovative wineries. Here are my picks for the region.

Penfolds Magill Estate: Nestled in the foothills of Adelaide with views overlooking the city, Magill Estate is only a 15 minutes drive from Adelaide City. The new cellar door offers breathtaking views of the iconic Penfolds vineyards, and is a perfect setting for visitors to immerse themselves in the history and spirit of Penfolds. Here you will enjoy a luxurious experience with outstanding service, wine education and comprehensive dining at the estate‚Äôs restaurant. If you are interested to learn about the birthplace of Grange then this is a must stop visit. Try the Magill Estate Shiraz. 

Shaw and Smith: Founded by industry legends, Michael Hill-Smith MW and Martin Shaw, this is one of the country's best modern wineries with a vision that exceeded all exceptions of the aficionados and critics. Being in a cool climate region of the South Australian state enables them to produce elegant and fresh styles of Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Shiraz and Pinot Noir. The winery's architecture is state of the art that makes the tasting experience a delight. Try the Sauvignon Blanc as you can gaze upon to the rolling vineyards of the region. 

 Vinteloper: One of Australia's first urban wineries focusing on producing wine from across the South Australian regions. The cellar door is a shed with a tractor and a proud winemaker. The offerings are simple and true to its philosophy: wine is for the people, fun on the outside and serious in the bottle. Perfect for the hipster wine lover and those seeking an experience beyond typical rolling vineyards and ma and pop stops. Try the Touriga Nacional.
