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.

Philip White revels in the wines and bright endeavour of thrice-crowned Bushing King, Stephen Pannell

Steve Pannell has been crowned the 2016 Bushing King – the McLaren Vale Wine Show’s top honour – for the second year in a row.

Steve Pannell Named 2015 Australian Winemaker Of The Year

In many ways, Stephen Pannell’s journey to the 2015 Winemaker of the Year Award reflects the journey of Australian wine over the past 50 years.

Pannell Lures 2014 Jimmy Watson Back To SA

In a return to South Australia after an absence of 7 years, and on its first ever visit to the Adelaide Hills, the renowned James Watson Memorial Trophy (Jimmy Watson) has been awarded to SC Pannell Wines 2013 Adelaide Hills Syrah.

It would be difficult to conjure a more complete all-round wine guy than Steve Pannell. He really understands the vineyard, the winery, the market, the zeitgeist, and wine quality. His wines result from this, so little wonder at his success.

Huan Hooke, Oxford Companion to Wine

“ The future for the Pannells is limitless, the icon status of the label already established.”

James Halliday, The Australia Wine Companion

“ In many ways Stephen Pannell is the standard-bearer for what one might call the new style of fresher Australian Wines. Wines to admire and drink. ”

Jancis Robinson, British Wine Critic & Journalist

“ I wouldn't be surprised if in 40 years time that we're talking about this guy as one of the greatest Australian winemakers ever to make wines in our age . ”

Nick Stock, The Good Wine Guide
