Our Vineyards

The magic of Penfolds begins in the vineyard.

Penfolds vineyards are located primarily in South Australia on prime land throughout the state’s renowned viticultural regions. Throughout its history, Penfolds has owned and leased vineyards in addition to sourcing grapes from independent growers.

This strategy reflects the tradition of multi-vineyard and multi-regional sourcing first introduced in the 1860s. This allows for a consistency of style and quality across vintages, of which Penfolds is renowned for.

Magill Estate

Magill Estate is intrinsically linked to Penfolds beginnings and is the location of the winery’s ‘spiritual home’, first established in 1844. A single vineyard monopole, Magill Estate is one of the world’s few urban vineyards, located only 15 minutes from the Adelaide CBD. The vineyard is 100% shiraz and fruit from the vineyard contributes to Magill Estate Shiraz, with select parcels also being submitted to Penfolds flagship, Grange, in chosen vintages.

Barossa Valley

The ancient soils of the Barossa Valley are home to many of our most celebrated vineyards. The region and some of the vineyards are steeped in history, including Penfolds own Kalimna Block 42 vines which were planted in 1880’s and are thought to be the oldest continuously-producing cabernet sauvignon vines in the world.

Our Barossa Valley vineyards contribute fruit to some of our most iconic wines from Grange to Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz, Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz and the sub-region expression of Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz.

Adelaide Hills

On the city’s doorstep, the cooler climate of the Adelaide Hills is ideal for cultivating most of Penfolds whites and pinots. The combination of high altitude and cool climate gives the wines their contemporary and distinctive profile. Our Adelaide Hills vineyards contribute fruit to our award-winning Reserve Bin A Chardonnay, St Henri Shiraz and Cellar Reserve range.

McLaren Vale

A classic Mediterranean climate with cool winters, warm summers, low rainfall and moderating sea breezes. McLaren Vale vineyards contribute fruit to St Henri Shiraz, Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz and Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon.
