Recent Project - S.C. Pannell Wines

S. C. Pannell Wines is located in the magnificent McLaren Vale in South Australia. It was founded in 2004 by Stephen Pannell and Fiona Lindquist and is a small, family-owned business. The winery was forged out of Stephen’s passion for the McLaren Vale region and its ability to produce dry-grown and environmentally sustainable wines. Stephen wanted to make wines from the region that express the area and define the character of the McLaren Vale.

It was in November 2012 that Stephen and Fiona purchased their first vineyard, in the Blewitt Springs area of the McLaren Vale. More recently, S. C. Pannell has found a new home in the McLaren Vale at their new cellar door at 60 Olivers Road. The winery was bought in July last year, and renovations commenced in August.

S. C. Pannell approached Bali Republic in December 2014 to supply outdoor furniture for their recently transformed cellar door entertaining area. Fiona Lindquist contacted Bali Republic after hearing about their extensive outdoor furniture range through a friend who specified Bali Republic products for another commercial project completed at Walford Anglican School for Girls in Hyde Park in Adelaide. Similar to the project in Hyde Park, S. C. Pannell were keen for a modern look and consequently the Renon Outdoor Furniture collection was identified early on as being perfect for the space.

“The tables and bench seats have made the outdoor area much more relaxed and contemporary,” said Fiona Lindquist.

Fiona already had a very clear vision about what would look good and work well in the outdoor area at the S.C. Pannell cellar door after browsing through Bali Republic’s online showroom.

"Fiona was fantastic to deal with, she knew exactly what the outdoor area at S.C. Pannell required so it was a pretty straightforward project from our point of view,” said Adam Batty from Bali Republic.

The outdoor furniture specified was the Renon 8 Seat Outdoor Setting, which combines bench seating with tables and is ideal for a high traffic commercial space. The Renon range looks sensational and has an ultra-modern look and feel that combines premium quality stainless steel with the very finest grade-A teak available.

S. C. Pannell are extremely happy with the completed renovations, and are looking forward to entertaining guests and hosting tastings on their deck overlooking the beautiful hills of the McLaren Vale. The tables are one of the features of the outdoor areas and the bench seats are designed to give the place a relaxed and welcoming feel.

“Adam and the team at Bali Republic made ordering the furniture simple and cost effective. They were easier to organise and cheaper than purchasing locally,” comments Fiona.

S. C. Pannell had a really tight schedule and it was crucial we did everything in a timely manner so that the space would be ready for the Spring/Summer rush.

“Adam went out of his way to ensure we got the outdoor settings as soon as possible and that we felt confident we could rely on him for any after sales service if required. He was very helpful with advice regarding care of the furniture and finishes to apply,” states Fiona.

Bali Republic's modern outdoor furniture range is designed and manufactured for commercial applications and comes backed by a 3-year warranty. All of our products are manufactured to the highest standard using premium quality and eco-friendly materials.
