When Dr Christopher Rawson Penfold arrived from Britain in the young South Australian colony in 1844 with his wife Mary, he brought vine cuttings which he planted around his stone cottage, which they called 'The Grange'. This was situated in Magill, which is now part of suburban Adelaide.
Today PENFOLDS sells wine worldwide. In Australia PENFOLDS is seen as an industry leader, the company that led the way in establishing an international quality reputation for our wine industry.
