Red Dot Gallery
The distinctive red dot, derived from art gallery ‘sold’ stickers, is the Penny's Hill trademark, symbolising the art of winemaking as well as our passion for the work of local artists. With connotations of art culture at the centre of our brand, it seemed logical, and almost necessary, to include a gallery space at Penny's Hill.
The Red Dot Gallery spans the foyer and cellar door, through to The Kitchen Door restaurant. We invite browsing of the constantly changing works of art; a perfect accompaniment to our fine wine and food offering.
The current exhibition is by Gail Kellett, local McLaren Vale artist. Gail's original hand painted lino cut artwork reflect the diversity of the region in which she lives - rural and urban landscape, native flora and agricultural machinery.
The Kitchen Door Restaurant
Celebrating artisan food producers of the region, The Kitchen Door offers a relaxed, indulgent experience for locals and visitors alike.
Executive Chef Tom Boden has been the recipient of Two Forks in the Advertiser Food Awards and two consecutive Hats from the Australian Good Food Guide. Chef Tom’s philosophy revolves around the creation of balanced dishes - presenting classic cooking in a contemporary style.
The Kitchen Door team offer an ever-changing, inspired menu matched with award winning wines from Penny’s Hill. Open for Lunch 7 Days.
