"Pretty town that is supported by the Coonawarra Wine Region"

"A great spot for wine-drinkers who love the country life"

Pretty Penola is a small country town located 380 kilometres to the southeast of Adelaide and just 40 kilometres to the north of Mt Gambier (South Australia’s second largest town).

Penola is on the edge of the Coonawarra wine region, renowned for its famous Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnays.

Penola has a quiet rural feel, but a serious touch of class with a number of lovely cafés and restaurants built specifically to cater for the wine-tasting crowd.

The town itself is quite simple, with a population of just under 2,000 which increases in vintage time. There are a few small shops and facilities. However it is best to head to neighbouring Mt Gambier for most essential goods, services and business needs.
