Get To Know S.C.Pannell

"I try to create wines that suit our climate and our way of life - wines to drink with the food we grow, make and eat in Australia."

The S.C.Pannell winery was realised to focus on Stephen’s passion for the McLaren Vale region and its ability to produce dry - grown and environmentally sustainable Shiraz and Grenache. In 2014 a new home was established at 60 Olivers Rd McLaren Vale.

Steve's holistic philosophy to winemaking starts with our climate, empahasises the importance on the vineyard, as well as wine's relation to food we love to grow, cook, and eat.
