Karin Penninga is the Cellar Door Manager at McWilliam’s Hanwood Estate. Originally from the Netherlands, she studied Agricultural Economics-Marketing (BSc) and travelled whilst doing her traineeships in various countries in Europe and Africa. Karin emigrated to Australia in 2001.

Karin is responsible for the running of the Cellar Door, events and the member’s wine club. Karin’s passionate approach has enabled her to learn about the large portfolio of wines available in the Hanwood Cellar Door.

Originally from a dairy farm in the Netherlands and now residing in another rural food producing area, Karin is passionate about local produce. She sees Taste Riverina as a great initiative to raise awareness of the premium wines, foods and other beverages produced in the Riverina to a broader public and increase visitation to this area.
