34°29′S 139°02′E / 34.483°S 139.033°E / -34.483; 139.033 Penrice is a small town in the Barossa Valley of South Australia, just north of Angaston. It is the site of a large limestone and marble quarry which was operated by Penrice Soda Products until that company failed. The quarry was bought by Adelaide Brighton Cement as a going concern in July 2014.[2]

Penrice was named by Captain Rodda after Penrice, a town in Glamorganshire, Wales. [3]

Penrice is in the Barossa Council local government area, the state electoral district of Schubert and the federal Division of Barker.[1]
