Penfolds Magill Estate, Adelaide, SA
On Jason Godfrey’s journey around South Australia he met with Peter Gago, Chief Winemaker at Penfolds. When Peter isn’t working in the winery or vineyard, the celebrated winemaker, author and the current custodian of Penfolds Grange, fulfils his other role as an ambassador and natural educator.
“During my time in South Australia I visited one of the most prominent and earliest winemakers in Australia, Penfolds. The Penfolds Magill Estate is the original vineyard established in 1844 and Peter Gago taught me that the history of Penfolds has very much dovetailed into the history of South Australia. The best part is that it’s not just a site or a monument or a relic of what used to be but it is still a working winery, reflecting the region’s journey from rural colonial settlement to the contemporary now,” says Jason Godfrey, Savour Australia
