A recent light-hearted study by luxury British travel brand, CV Villas, placed two Ultimate Wineries in the Top 30 'Most Beautiful Vineyards in the World'. The list was compiled via social media, with 200 wineries ranked by the number of hashtags they each had on current Instagram posts.
In top position was Boschendal in South Africa with more than 95,500 hashtags.
A close second with 94,741 hashtags was our own Ultimate Winery, Penfolds Magill Estate.
Nestled in the foothills of Adelaide and only 15 minutes from the CBD, Penfolds Magill Estate is the original home of Penfolds wines and Australia’s most prized wine, the famous Grange. Join a Penfolds Iconic Experience, Penfolds Platinum Experience or the Ultimate Penfolds Experience for a wine tasting of Penfold's famous labels, see the vineyard where the Grange story started, and dine on South Australian produce in the award-winning restaurant. Explore the heritage-listed winery on a tour and see the underground tunnels, the heritage-listed bluestone cellars and Still House, as well as Grange cottage - the original home of Dr Christopher and Mary Penfold.
Also on the list at number 27, was our Ultimate Winery Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley.
Famous for its Centennial Collection - an unbroken lineage of Tawny of every vintage from 1878 to the current year, Seppeltsfield is also the only winery in the world to release a 100-year-old, single vintage wine each year. The Seppeltsfield Estate is home to a vibrant Barossa community of wine, food, art and beauty, highlighted by Seppeltsfield’s world-class cellar door & tasting rooms, FINO Restaurant, JamFactory Contemporary Art & Design studios and Vasse Virgin Skin care. Seppeltsfield offers a diverse range of experiences including A Taste of History, Centenary Tour, Great Terrace Vineyard Tour, Segway Vineyard Tour and Taste Your Birth Year Tour.
