We did the Joseph Experience with Lynley at Primo Estate. The service was so professional ,informative and fun. The wines were divine and we would highly recommend to friends to visit and ask for Lynley if she is working . Her knowledge on all things Joseph was just fabulous and made our day! Top notch !! 10/10

After watching cooking shows featuring the renowned Primo Estate and its celebrated Joseph olive oil, we were inspired to visit during our stay in South Australia. The experience lived up to our expectations. From the outside, the winery's architecture is understated modernity; however, stepping inside reveals a charming courtyard, state-of-the-art amenities, and a fluid design. The tasting rooms boast a polished aesthetic, and the customer service provided by the two ladies who assisted us on Sunday was outstanding. They were both informative and well-versed in the wines, olive oil, and local area. Impressed by their expertise, we purchased over $250 in oils and wines.

Obviously great views of the vineyards, the tasting area so clean and neat . We were greeted warmly by Lorina . We then tasted some amazing wines while we were given a history of the winery and the different blends. We had a few laughs along the way and had an enjoyable experience. We bought wine and it was no problem for them to deliver back to Victoria. The wine arrived promptly.

Unique winery with fabulous wines, but especially fabulous olive oil & balsamic vinegar! Go the Joseph flight and enjoy the olive oil with parmesan & bread - scrumptious!

We booked a wine tasting at Primo Estate. It was a stormy, cold and overcast day which made pushing through the gravy door cellar door in to the warm building even more welcoming.

We booked a Joseph Tasting and, so far, this has been the highlight of our trip. We had a selection of three wines complimented with warm artisan bread, olive oil and grana padano cheese. Wow. The pairing of the wines with simple, incredible food was divine. Next level. The superstar for me was the Moda (Cabernet, Sauvignon Merlot) especially with the cheese. The police oil is a rock star all on its own.

Absolutely gorgeous. A must on a McLaren Vale wine adventure.

Such an amazing time at Primo! We arrived here for our last stop of the day, and instantly had the most amazing service from Lorena. We enjoyed the wine tastings, as well as the delicious bread with olive oil and cheese! We bought a bottle of the Moda Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot to drink at the beautiful grounds before leaving. Thanks so much Primo Estate, and Lorena!

We were welcomed warmly despite only half an hour till closing. Our hostess was charming, helpful, and informative and although we were aware of the time constraints, she didn’t rush us. We were keen to try this Italian influenced wine and we were not disappointed. We came away with a box of wine that we discovered could be conveniently posted to our home state without cost. We loved hearing about the wine making family’s personal involvement in the wine and the premises. The personal touch is certainly evident in the whole enterprise including the way we were treated. Our purchases included the delicious olive oil and a wine that the winemaker produces from Italy in the Veneto area where he visits annually. The building itself is architecturally interesting. Do visit! Well worthwhile.
