Since 1844, Penfolds has played a pivotal role in the evolution of winemaking with a rich history and heritage profoundly reflecting Australia’s journey from colonial settlement to the modern era. Distinctive and consistently recognisable, Penfolds showcases a collection of benchmark wines, established in a spirit of innovation and the constant and endless pursuit of quality. The collection continues to display the iconic vintages, alongside the recognisable ‘House Style’; the perfect expression of the sourcing the highest quality fruits, from the best regions.
Penfolds continues to remain true to its original values by honouring their historic blends, significant milestones and heritage vineyards. Today, Penfolds celebrates these traditional winemaking values, as we also cultivate great new traditions to be enjoyed by collectors and drinkers globally.

As Penfolds Chief Winemaker, Peter’s passion and dedication to the time-honoured Penfolds winemaking style is unsurpassed. Peter Gago joined the winemaking team in 1989, initially in the craftsmanship of sparkling wines, before moving on to reds, as the Penfolds Red Wine Oenologist. In 2002 Peter became the fourth ever Chief Winemaker since the first vineyard was planted in 1844 by Dr Christopher Penfold and his wife Mary.
Together with his fellow winemakers, Peter’s careful custodianship has ensured that Grange and the entire portfolio have continued to set the benchmark for the Penfolds house style and quality. Peter and his fellow winemakers are constantly refining and improving their work, whilst honouring the winemaking techniques of their predecessors. In 2017, Peter was recognised for this work in the Australian wine industry, becoming the South Australia’s Great Wine Capitals Global Ambassador, and received the significant honour, as a Companion of The Order of Australia (AC).
