About S.C. Pannell

Having parents who founded 2 wineries (Moss Wood and Picardy) gave Stephen Pannell a good head start in winemaking, and it was a matter of time before he started his own label. A fervent advocate of Australian Grenache, Pannell’s wines are known to be exceptionally approachable without sacrificing age ability.

Before starting his own label in 2004, Stephen Pannell was the chief winemaker at Hardy’s between 1999 and 2003, having also undergone several apprenticeships in France, most notably at Domaine Comte Lafon and Mouton-Rothschild. His fascination with Grenache is rooted in his preference to make medium-bodied wines rather than heavy blockbusters, with Grenache seemingly the perfect choice. After spending over 20 years crafting Grenache from McLaren Vale, Stephen Pannell is hopeful that the varietal will become McLaren Vale’s most recognized wine in good time.

Over the course of his career, Stephen has amassed a string of accolades, including being named one of the 50 most influential contributors to the world of wine by Decanter Magazine and being the first winemaker in McLaren Vale history to win the Bushing Trophy for best red wine of show in McLaren Vale four times over!
