Pannell Enoteca now in Queensland

That’s right folks, the rumours are true, Pannell Enoteca has joined Team CellarHand in Queensland and we can barely contain our excitementSteve and Fiona Pannell have been part of the CellarHand family for over 19 years, and to be able to offer their wines in Queensland today is a profound honour. Famously known as “a trailblazer in a region known for its innovation, Stephen is boldly redefining Australian Wine” (

Located in the heart of McLaren Vale, Steve has heralded a pathway for Mediterranean varieties after woking with some of the world’s most iconic wineries around Europe. With the strong belief of making wines that suits where we live, the introduction of coastal European varieties has allowed Steve to pave the way with his own signature style. Now commonly known as the “founder of the contemporary grenache zeitgeist” (Ned Goodwin MW, Halliday Wine Companion), Pannell’s wines reflect the region’s climate and the Australian way of life

The exquisite range of wines from S.C Pannell, Koomilya and Protero are complete stand outs, and cherished by so many including every single one of us at CellarHand. This partnership, one of genuine respect and admiration, heralds an exciting new chapter for both Pannell & CellarHand and we cannot wait to bring you these incredible wines.
