Penfolds has had its success driven by generations of visionaries and innovators. From its start in 1844 to today, science, art and innovation came together to drive Penfolds to become one of Australia's most famed and respected winemakers.
With the success of early sherries and fortified wines, Dr Christopher and Mary Penfold planted the vine cuttings they carried on their way over here to Australia.
Dr Penfold's medical reputation grew alongside the company, with Mary running the winery. With early Clarets and Rieslings gaining popularity, and Christopher passing, Mary assumed complete responsibility for the winery, which helped Penfolds see years of determination and endeavour.
The rest is history.
Today, despite its great success, Penfolds doesn't rest. Celebrating their 170th anniversary, Penfolds continues to hold dear the philosophies and legends.
