Skillogalee got it's name from the pioneer and explorer John Horrocks, who settled at Penworththam, named after his home town in England in the early 1840's. He explored further north in the Flinders ranges looking for land suitable for settlement. On one such expedition, Horrocks' party was beset by illness, injuries and bad weather. Having run short of provisions, they survived only by making a 'skillogalee' or 'skilly' a sort of thin porridge. The word skillogalee has Celtic origins and the dish was commonly fed to prisoners in Ireland around this time. When Horrocks finally made it back to Penwortham, he gave the creek nearby the name Skillogalee in memory of this event. The vineyard takes it's name from the creek which runs through the eastern end.
