S.C.Pannell the label was established by Steve and wife Fiona in 2004, but Steve's journey to winemaking really dates back to 1969, where as a toddler he grew up on one of Australia's most iconic boutique wineries, Moss Wood in the Margaret River. The S.C.Pannell winery was realised to focus on Stephen’s passion for the McLaren Vale region and its ability to produce dry - grown and environmentally sustainable Shiraz and Grenache. Steve's holistic philosophy to winemaking starts with our climate, empahasises the importance on the vineyard, as well as wine's relation to food we love to grow, cook, and eat. Stephen Pannell was recently named Gourmet Traveller Wine 2015 Australian Winemaker of the Year. Establishing his own label, S.C.Pannell Wines in 2004, Stephen with wife Fiona, have recently opened their long awaited cellar door in the heart of McLaren Vale.
