After a weekend of wine tasting through the region we made it out last stop before coming home. So glad we dropped in. Purchased a few bottles of red and checked out the gift shop. Will always return to visit. Thanks heaps.

Nice Pinot Gris, nice reds but not great compared to others in the area. Good gift shop though and managed to buy some gifts and some organic mozzie cream and candle!

Have bought their wines before but not visited them in Penola. Great family winery with family at the heart of everything they do. Terrific reds and even bought some Pinot Grigio which was a surprise for our household. Thanks for the hospitality.
