Penfolds Bin Series: A Symphony of Flavors

Penfolds, one of Australia's most renowned wineries, has a rich history that dates back to 1844. Founded by Dr. Christopher and Mary Penfold, the winery began on the slopes of Magill Estate in South Australia. Initially established to create medicinal fortified wines, Penfolds quickly gained a reputation for producing high-quality wines. By the 1950s, the winery's focus shifted to table wines, leading to the creation of the iconic Grange Hermitage, now simply known as Grange.

They continued to innovate and expand its offerings, leading to the development of the Bin Series in the 1960s. The Bin Series represents the best of Penfolds' winemaking prowess, with each wine being assigned a unique bin number, signifying its style and quality. Today, Penfolds remains a symbol of excellence and tradition in the wine world, celebrated for its craftsmanship and commitment to quality.
