My wife and I stopped by at this charming winery as part of an afternoon strolling the Shiraz Trail. Unassuming from the outside, we were delighted that we chose to stop by here. We were lucky enough to taste more than a dozen wines from across the three labels that Penny's Hill produces. All were excellent in different ways. The... More

Booked for lunch ordered the Tomahawk steak. Firstly we were told it would take a while as it was 1.2kg however 1 hour and 15 minutes later it arrived. I must say it was disappointing half of it was fat, the rest tough and no flavour..not what you would expect for $95. On the positive our friend had the steak... More

Great selection of wines for all budgets. Amazing food and various prices. Deli was open as well as their main restaurant. Restaurant is pricey however some amazing local food on display. It is good however can get a little busy.

We're very lucky that our chefs pride themselves on finding such local produce - last week's desserts had locally foraged blackberries and local... More

A welcome is always waiting at Penny's Hill. There are several different labels to choose from, depending on your budget and palate. There is no charge for tasting. The wines are all well made with no obvious faults.
