Penny's Hill: The Kitchen Door

Sadly, The Kitchen Door hasn't re-opened yet since temporarily closing mid 2020 due to the pandemic - but we watch the space for you; in the meantime, read more below on their cellar door and the Flights Gin Bar

Restaurant closed until further notice

The Kitchen Door restaurant may be closed for now, but that should stop you from paying a visit to visit Penny's Hill with its stunning buildings and wide range of wines and gins available for tasting.

Start with a stroll across the beautiful grounds of the old ‘Ingleburne’ homestead, a historic Georgian two-storey farmhouse, with ironstone stables and out-buildings, along the main road between McLaren Vale and Willunga.


In their cellar door, the wines from the Black Chook, Thomas Goss and Penny’s Hill range are available for tasting and you will find artwork throughout as part of the Red Dot Gallery’s curated and constantly changing works by local artists. The Penny's Hill 'Cracking Black' Shiraz and the Penny's Hill 'The Experiment' Grenache are a quintessential taste of McLaren Vale for us.

And if you are gin lover, the latest addition to Penny’s Hill is right for you. Open on weekends only, is the Flights Gin bar and tasting room in one of the old stone outbuildings, featuring Mad Men and Kangaroo Island Spirits gin.

Good reason to stay on for just a little longer.
