The scores and eviews of Penfolds’ inaugural California Collection are reflective of its commitment to making exceptional wines across two hemispheres, underpinned by Penfolds House Style

Following its Penfolds California wine tasting held earlier this month, the company is proud to share the first scores and reviews of Penfolds’ inaugural California Collection. The collection of scores has been published by some of the most respected wine critics from around the world.
