Penley Estate is one of Coonawarra’s leading wineries established by Kym Tolley, a direct descendant of two of Australia’s most famous wine families: Penfold and Tolley. Kym Tolley, one of Coonawarra's most experienced winemakers, has over 25 years winemaking behind him. Prior to establishing Penley Estate in 1988, he spent 15 years with Penfolds, under the tutelage of Grange creator, Max Schubert. Coonawarra, an Aboriginal word meaning “honeysuckle,” is a renowned wine region on South Australia’s limestone coast. Located midway between Adelaide and Melbourne, this inland region is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grown in its famous “terra rossa” (red clay over limestone) soils.
Wine and food pairing coming soon!
About our events: Denver Wine Meetup/UncorkedDenver.com events are a unique opportunity to socialize with other young/mid professionals and make new friends over at a wine and food pairing, with select wines paired with appetizers, sometimes with the winemaker visiting.
Our events differ from the many “happy hours” in a bar groups around Denver and high priced wine organizations, distributor/festival type events as the events are a wine social with the opportunity to meet a winemaker or wine manager and focus on learning about a winery and/or a varietal. Our events provide members a unique wine and culinary pairing event with the aspect of a social mixer at an affordable price. Although our events are not “singles” events, we try to keep an even split of males, females and couples at our events.
Please note: Our party area will be private (and blocked from the public) and we will turn away folks who do not have a ticket as we must provide the headcount to the chef and winemaker. This event will be limited to 100 attendees due to space
Dinner after the event: We have a Steak and Crab Leg Special for $19.95 and of course you may order off the menu!
