Penny's Hill and Mr. Riggs Cellars are located in the renowned South Australian wine region of McLaren Vale.

Each and every wine is intended to express the very best of the vineyard’s terroir and our philosophy of making wines for the table; wines not just to be seen in all the best places, but drunk in all the busy places.

Whether it's to gaze, to graze or just laze, the Penny's Hill and Mr. Riggs Cellars offers visitors many an option.

From tasting a wide range of Penny's Hill, Mr. Riggs, The Black Chook and Woop Woop premium wines, to browsing a gallery of constantly changing works of art by Australian artists, walking the expansive grounds, finding photographic angles or lingering over an outstanding food-wine experience in our award winning 'The Kitchen Door' restaurant, 'Ingleburne' Farm where we are located is an enchanting link with the ways of previous generations. Yet, it is a vibrant modern facility, bubbling with good cheer, friendly informed service and the chance to stay overnight, or two in our 1850s two storey, Georgian style homestead.

All wines have been made since inception by award wining McLaren Vale winemaker Ben Riggs, and are available for tasting from 10am to 5pm, seven days.

Penny's Hill has built its award winning reputation with exceptional, estate grown fruit. Stylistically driven by terroir, the wines demonstrate elegance, balance and the lush, earthy characteristics that are true to McLaren Vale. Recognised by the distinctive "red dot", Penny's Hill wines are easily spotted around Australia and the globe.

The aim of all Mr. Riggs wines is to express the essence of the vineyard and variety or varieties, in a style that Ben himself enjoys drinking; big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance. The goal of Mr. Riggs is to produce icon wines from icon regions.

We immortalised The Black Chook's that scratch around the Penny's Hill and Mr. Riggs Cellars in the form of this wine, rationalising that they had come from a white egg just as our dark, inky wine had been influenced by the white Viognier in its coupling with the black Shiraz - the first wine in the range.

Woop Woop is a mythical destination set deep in the Australian imagination that captures the very essence and remoteness of the outback and Australian tradition. Woop Woop wines bring together trusted growers from some of Australia's best known regions. The result? Rich, juicy reds full of true varietal character, and crisp, refreshing whites at a price that belies the quality.

On any day, the time can be passed happily. Why don't you join us.
