Penfolds is a famous Australian wine producer that was founded in Adelaide in 1844 by Christopher Rawson Penfold, who had migrated to Australia from England with his wife Mary Penfold.
Many of Australia’s wines have become known internationally, but with only a relatively short 200 year history are quite new compared with world wine making history dating back 7000 years across Europe, China and the Middle East. However there is no clear birthplace for winemaking recorded and is as much legend as fact in the ancient world.
In Australia, Penfolds is famous in Australia and across the world for their Grange wine along with a small selection of Penfolds wines ranging from a Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz Cabernet red wine varieties to a Chardonnay white wine.
The Penfolds winery started just eight years after the foundation of South Australia and has played a prominent role in Australian winemaking. And is another great Australian success story.
