Penfolds & Magill Estate

Nestled in the foothills of Adelaide (capital city of South Australia) and only 15 minutes from the CBD, Penfolds Magill Estate is the original home of Penfolds wines and of Australia's most prized wine, the famous Grange.

The historic and heritage-protected vineyard was established in 1844 by Dr. Christopher Rawson and Mary Penfold. It was known as the Grange Vineyard, named after their new homestead "The Grange", a cottage that still stands amongst the vines. This vineyard was first planted with Grenache from cuttings taken from the South of France and would go on to inspire and supply fruit for Penfolds Grange.
