Guests were invited to experience a gala dinner to celebrate the new release of the iconic Penfolds Bins and Grange 2008, which recently was awarded 100 points from Robert Parker.” Each of these new releases scored between 90+ to 100 points.

The ballroom of the seven-star resort, Capella on Sentosa Island was bedecked in the Penfolds color, with thousands of red roses and custom branded runners as centerpieces for each table.

Even Peter Gago himself, chief winemaker since 2002, remarked, “We do events around the planet but it’s been a long time since I’ve been in a room like this. It’s a beautiful space.”

Apart from Gago, winemakers Andrew Baldwin, Adam Clay, Jamie Sachs, and Ben Mehrtens also flew in from their native Australia for the special occasion.


The venue Capella went to lengths with us to create a curated menu matched perfectly to the star section wines, including the grand revel of the Penfolds Grange, hand-delivered in personal decanter's guests could keep, by an army of immaculate butler style waitstaff.
