Overview

The historic and heritage-protected vineyard was established in 1844 by Dr Christopher Rawson and Mary Penfold. It was known as the Grange Vineyard, named after their new homestead ‘The Grange’, a cottage that still stands amongst the vines. This vineyard was first planted with Grenache from cuttings taken from the South of France and would go on to inspire and supply fruit for Penfolds Grange.

Mary Penfold managed the estate and early winemaking. The wines were initially prescribed as tonics for anaemic patients and the famous Penfolds slogan ‘1844 to evermore’ harks back to its origins as a prescribed tonic.

Penfolds has attracted a strong international following, and regularly wins gold medals and gold class awards at Australian wine shows and world wine awards. As well as the accolades for Penfolds Grange, the Penfolds Chardonnay portfolio has enjoyed remarkable wine show success.

Penfolds’ Barossa Valley Winery and Cellar Door is the main site of Penfolds wine making. As testament to that focus, the winery facilities include the largest premium red wine barrel hall in the Southern Hemisphere. Visit the winery in the heart of the valley to sample a selection of Penfolds wines, including a rare taste of Grange.
