Meet a very special $495 wine tasting experience

Penfolds Grange is undoubtedly Australia's most famous wine. It is recognised worldwide and is much sought-after by collectors. 

For many wine-loving visitors to South Australia, a Grange tasting is a key component of their travels. 

To celebrate 180 years of Penfolds and the 60-year anniversary of Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon - another wine icon - Penfolds Magill Estate has launched a new tasting experience. But it doesn't come cheap. 

Those participating enjoy a bespoke winery tour and tasting, followed by a food and wine experience in Magill Estate Restaurant. The cost is $495 per person and the experience is available Wednesdays–Saturdays at 3pm. It's part of the Ultimate Winery Experiences of Australia roster. 

The historic vineyard was established in 1844 by Dr Christopher Rawson and Mary Penfold.  

The new Collectors' Experience includes a guided tasting of Penfolds' most famous wines, including  Penfolds Grange, in a private tasting room. 

The wines featured in the tasting include Yattarna Chardonnay, Quantum Cabernet Sauvignon from the  Napa Valley/South Australia, Penfolds X Dourthe Bordeaux Blend- Superblend 802.B Cabernet Shiraz,  Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon and Grange. 

Other inclusions are a copy of Penfolds Rewards of Patience book to take home. 

Of course, if you really want to push the boat out, there is also the Platinum Grange Experience where you arrive in style with a chauffeured transfer, followed by a guided historical tour of Penfolds Magill Estate.

Then enjoy a tasting of Penfolds most high-profile wines, including Grange, and indulge in a five-course lunch with paired wines at Magill Estate Kitchen, where your experience concludes with a personalised bottle of Grange and a return luxury transfer.

That's $1,650 per person and bookings are needed at least 48 hours in advance.
