Great people, amazing wine and a beautiful cellar door. You can’t ask for more than that. Plus the olive oil is the best I’ve ever tasted!

We have visited almost all of the wineries in McLaren Vale and always recommend a visit to Primo.

Delicious fresh Italian whites and full chewable spicy reds. The Joseph experience is a nice touch with a taste of the estates olive oil and premium wines.

The winery itself is modern and clean and very welcoming. If you have a chance to go to a Primo lunch do it!!

Keep it up guys!

After visiting a few wineries over the weekend we stopped by Primo Estate, Primo by far had the best experience! We did the standard tasting which had 8 wines on the list that you go through. Daniel was our host for the tastings and he was AMAZING! He was extremely kind from beginning to end and even gave us a sample of their Joseph cold pressed EVOO! Daniel was super passionate about his family business and gave us the history of how the wines got started! We couldn’t leave empty handed because the wines were delicious! We purchased a bottle of their Joseph Olive Oil and 2 bottles of La Biondina! Can’t wait to open these bottles! Thanks again, Daniel! Primo will be our first stop next time we’re back in town!

We had the pleasure of sampling a Primo wine, in a restaurant, on a previous trip to Australia and built in a trip to the winery on this trip. We were all blown away by the quality and sheer gorgeousness of all the wines we tasted. The only downside was that it spoilt us for any other wine tasting we did this trip - both in McClaren Vale and the Yarra Valley!
We could not buy the wine that drew us there as it was sold out but the lovely Judy showed us that the UK agent for their wine had some in stock. Oh the irony of travelling halfway around the world, only to be able to get our favourite at home! We did buy four other wines though, they were so good.
Judy’s knowledge and patience was a sheer delight and we will definitely visit again in the future

This was our favourite cellar door visit out of the numerous wineries we visited in McLaren Vale. Excellent and friendly service (thank you Judy and Daniel), beautiful surroundings and exceptional wine.
