A fabulous, interesting and educational tour of an iconic SA winery. Ending with a tasting of a delicious selection of their premium wines.

We were lucky enough to win two x $100 South Australian Experience promotional vouchers and looking around as to what we could use them on discovered the Iconic Penfolds Magill Experience for $295 per person but with the vouchers this reduced the cost to a more manageable $195 each. We had previously been to Magill Estate for a lunch and a separate Taste Australia dinner function so we knew that it was only about a 15-20 minute drive from the city and on each of those occasions the food had been very good. The wines speak for themselves. Magill is the original home of Penfolds wines having been established in 1844. We arrived at the Cellar Door and met up with our very experienced, informative and delightful guide Lee who quickly sorted out some issues that they were having with the use of the vouchers. The tour started at the original home of Dr Rawson Penfold which is a short walk from the Cellar Door. Dr Penfold treated patients in his house whilst he and his wife, as a side light to begin with, tended to the vineyard and the business of making wine. He used to give his patient's some of his fortified wines for medicinal purposes. Next was a visit to the winery itself, which is still in use, and then to some of the cellars where the barrels are stored. Following this we were escorted into the Cellar Door and a very plush tasting room (one of a number in the Cellar Door) where we tasted six wines including two whites (Yattarna and a Reserve Bin A chardonnay) and four reds (including Grange, RWT, a 707 and a 169 Cabernet Sauvignon). As they have stopped giving guests cheese platters to have with the tastings during Covid we received a little Penfolds notebook. Following the wine tasting we were shown into the Kitchen restaurant where we had a three course meal with matching wines. Our courses included quail, grilled lamb rump and a poached pear dessert. All of the dishes were very tasty. We were then invited to go back into the main area of the cellar door to taste some Magill Estate and St Henri. An excellent afternoon and thank you to Lee and the South Australian Government for making it so enjoyable and affordable.

Our guide Gigi is a font of information. Gigi is passionate about the history and heritage within the Penfold family dream. She displays a knowledge of the process second to none. Gigli shares her knowledge and training in such a professional manner. Thankyou to Penfold for the experience that we as a group of six spoke about for the rest of today. Thankyou, John and Ali

The visit and explanation are fun but not really useful for wine's professional as the tasting, the staff is kind and smart but you feel every time in the hurry during the tasting and the staff is not qualified to respond to you when you ask basic question ( when you are a professional of wine) Definitely, if you are just interested tourist this place is good but if you work in wine industry, pass your path.
