Experience the Lost Penny story for yourself

We invite you to become part of the Lost Penny story through our range of relaxed and intimate tasting experiences.

You’ll be guided by us – Nick & Carol – a pair of sixth generation Barossans. Being the grapegrower and winemaker is a unique combination, and will give you an equally unique experience.

You’ll hear tales of our family’s heritage and why the fruit from the Ebenezer region is so highly sought after. And, you’ll be immersed in the current season that we’re in.

Held on the property the Riebke family has worked since the late 1800s, and where our family calls home – you’ll get a true feel for our way of life, and discover our winemaking from the ground up.
All hile soaking up the stunning views rolling hills, majestic gums and sweeping vineyards.

Taste our current vintage in the authentic surrounds of our working winery, where there is so much to smell, see and learn. You can also stand among the vines, where the oldest shiraz vines were planted more than 100 years ago.

Plus, if you’re lucky – you might spy the gleam of a lost penny yourself!

Only 5 minutes drive from Nuriootpa, each experience is available by appointment only.

Taste our way of life

The name Lost Penny Wines was born after finding the first coin in the vineyard. The penny had spent many years on the dirt – a 1891 Penny. It amazes us how we could still read the date on the coin after so many years hiding underground. It was only fitting that we would name this very special wine in honour of the year in which the first coin helped in shaping our new adventure.

Carol will take you beyond the label with a tasting flight of our current vintage within our working winery, including a winery tour.

A few last notes…

Our experiences are all family-friendly, because you’re coming into our family! If you visit us in the school holidays, chances are you’ll get to meet our children Owen, Jake and Elli who just like us have grown up amongst the vines.

Got a furry companion? They’re welcome to come too & meet our winery dogs.

Lost Penny Wines is crafted purely by us and we’d love to take you on a journey through our wines, our history and why we are so passionate about the beautiful region we call home.

No 2 tours are ever the same! Because our vineyards and winery move with the seasons, you’ll experience something different depending on when you come.
