Our Tight Knit Red Door Family

We know that sometimes you may wish to know a little more about the friendly team who are serving you, so we have put together a quick bio of The Team. Enjoy the read!

Patti McGorman

Head Chef and Owner

Patti is the owner and Head Chef of Red Door espresso. Patti started ‘Red Door’ with a vision to pass on her many skills that she has gained over the years running multiple hospitality business to up and coming hospitality enthusiasts. Patti started out as she intended to go on and has involved her family in Red Door since the beginning making it a one of a kind family adventure. On a Sunday morning you will find Patti and her partner Jason enjoying a nice pot of tea and listening to old classics on the radio… as Patti would say in the kitchen “Lets rock n roll!”

What would you suggest to someone visiting the Barossa to see/do?
Visit either Menglers Hill or Steingarten to get a fabulous view of the Valley, all the vines and all the beautiful churches.

Receiving hugs from all of our lovely locals.

Finish this sentence. On Sunday morning you can find me….
Drinking a pot of tea and listening to the radio.

Penelope De Ruiter

Restaurant Manager

Penelope is our Restaurant Manager, all round dog enthusiast and Patti’s daughter… you might not be able to tell them apart as they look very similar!
Originally from the beaches of WA, Penelope has spent most of her time growing up in the Barossa. An art and design lover, Penelope creates all her own artwork to hang in her house when she’s not out walking her dog Donnie with her fiancé Jeffrey. Show her a picture of your dog and you will have already made a best friend in Penelope.

What would you suggest to someone visiting the Barossa to see/do?
Seppeltsfield Road- it’s an experience in itself. There are so many great businesses on that road that complement each other. Or come see me at Red Door on a Saturday and listen to some live music and enjoy a cocktail.

What is your favourite thing about working at Red Door espresso?
The team and connecting with a great community. I love all of our locals.

Finish this sentence. On Sunday morning you can find me….
Sleeping in. Then taking my dog for a work and getting a coffee.

Delicious.
