Unique McLaren Vale wine history and heritage

Originally known as the “Willows Winery” and built from local ironstone in 1901 by Cyril Pridmore, (hence the CEP initials on the date stone over the main road door), it later became the only winery that Penfolds have ever owned in McLaren Vale, hence the street names. The legendary Max Schubert, the creator of Grange, worked and tasted in that cellar. His ghost still visits!
It was a winery site for 110 years, from 1901 to 2011, a priceless part of McLaren Vale and South Australia’s wine history.

Additional property adjoining this one at the front is also available, 151 – 153 Main Road Mclaren Vale, see separate listing for more information.

The ONLY winery in the Main Street of McLaren Vale, (Australia’s 2nd most recognised and important wine region) and with a priceless history and heritage.

This original stone storage cellar building was constructed into the hillside as a storage cellar in 1901. It has coursed stonewalls with brick quoins and corrugated iron roof sheeting. It replaced an earlier cellar of wattle slabs from the first winery on this site, ‘The Wattles’ constructed by Horace Pridmore around 1896. Penfolds Wines bought the winery from Cyril Pridmore in 1910, and expanded the plant and buildings, creating a model one-level winery, which functioned until 1961. In 1965 the winery was sold and re-opened as the centre of operations for a co-operative of district growers. The Southern Vales Co-operative Winery Ltd. then ran their winery until 1993, when it was sold to Tatachilla, who re-opened the winery and cellar door in 1995.
