Penfolds Magill Estate

Penfolds Magill Estate Review

Founded in 1844 by immigrant English doctor Christopher Rawson Penfold, this is the birthplace of Australia's most famous wine, Penfolds Grange, and one of the world's only city wineries. Introduced in 1951, Grange is the flagship of a huge stable of wines priced from everyday to special-occasion (collectors pay thousands of dollars to complete sets of Grange). Hour-long winery tours (A$15) leave daily at 11 and 3. The Great Grange Tour is the ultimate Magill Estate experience; over 2½ hours you visit the original Penfold family cottage, tour the winery, and enjoy a tasting of premium wines, including Grange, and a selection of gourmet cheeses. This tour departs at 1 pm on the first and third Sunday of every month and costs A$150 per person (minimum of four); reservations are essential.
