The Penfolds experience

We're spending this weekend in and around Adelaide. A Canberra friend (formerly of Adelaide) suggested we go to Penfolds Magill Estate to enjoy a winery tour and brunch. Why not? It's a good idea to book in advance, and there's a small charge ($20) for the tour and tastings ... though I quite like wineries with a tasting fee as that way you don't feel obliged to buy wine if you don't want to. Anyway, it's just a short bus ride from Adelaide city and was a lovely day out.

The brunch menu changes daily.

He had:

Baked eggs, haloumi and roast peppers, with a side of bacon

while she had:

Duck hash waffle (yes, there's shredded duck in that waffle)

The setting is beautiful ...

... the tour was interesting and the wines were delicious. We bought a fabulous bottle of tempranillo to take home to Canberra.
