Cellar Door

Enjoy a unique and historic cellar door experience at Penny's Hill, McLaren Vale.

In this ever-changing environment and time of uncertainty, we're taking all necessary measures as advised by the state and federal health bodies to keep both our customers and staff safe at Penny's Hill.

As recommendations come through to ‘social distance’ yourselves and in some cases ‘self-quarantine’, we have decided to close the Kitchen Door restaurant as well as both our cellar door and gin bar for tastings, however it remains easy to stock your cellar by driving in and we'll deliver your wine purchase to your car without any need for you to leave your vehicle.

Alternatively our full range is available online here Buy Wine, as usual.

On the Main Road between Willunga and McLaren Vale, the Penny’s Hill Cellar Door is located at ‘Ingleburne’ a landmark estate noted for its historic Georgian two-storey farmhouse, stables and out buildings, stone walls and open paddock spaces.

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.

The Kitchen Door team offer an ever-changing, inspired menu matched with award winning wines from Penny’s Hill.  Open for Lunch 7 Days from 12 Noon. Closed 24th - 26th December 2019.

A casual membership compared to Club 88, Penny's Hill & Friends gives you special benefits without the long term commitment.
