Overview
More
Unwind in the unique surrounds of historic ‘Ingleburne'. The shady trees and stone buildings creates a storybook charm to be enjoyed. Taste premium Penny's Hill Estate wines, as well as our Thomas Goss & Black Chook wines, in the expert hands of our enthusiastic local staff. Relax on comfy couches within the many spaces of our architecturally designed cellars and The Kitchen Door Restaurant. You can also browse the Red Dot Gallery for constantly changing works of art, Not only are the wines great, but there’s a wide open lawn for kids to run around on, a bocce court for some outdoor fun, a chook pen where you can meet the girls after whom The Black Chook wine is named, and a paddock of Suffolk sheep to delight in. For wet and cool days pull up a spot next to the roaring fireplace, and f or gaze upon our laid-back blacked-faced Suffolk sheep. Bus groups welcome by appointment. Tastings charged at $10/head for groups of 8 or more - $5 redeemable on purchase of Penny's Hill wines.

Excellent range of red wines presented by Sybil as she expertly guided us through from light to heavy. Their cab and Skeleton Key shiraz are exceptional value for money reds.The cheese platter is also special.
