What you can expect
Penfolds is a brand renowned throughout the world as a maker of fine Australian wine. During your visit to the Penfolds Cellar Door in the breathtaking Barossa Valley, you become part of the famous wine-making team when you make your own special version of Penfolds' delicious blend.
Arrive at the welcoming Penfolds Winery and Cellar Door, which was built in 1911 and is still producing some of the best bottles of wine in Australia. You’re invited into the Wine-Maker's Laboratory where you meet your friendly guides for your blending experience. Hear stories of the winery's history and learn more about the wine-making process that uses fruit sourced from the valley to make the wine you see in front of you.
Don your lab coat and commence the blending. This is your opportunity to try to make a perfect Grenache, Shiraz, and Mourvedre—just like Penfolds own Bin 138. Make a fine bottle that follows the Penfolds format or something to suit your own personal tastes.
After your blending is what you've been waiting for – the wine tasting. Try some of the famous Penfolds blend and some of your own creation. Leave the fulfilling experience with a bottle of your own wine with a personalised label that reads, “Assistant Winemaker.”
