And that’s Patrick Dowling, Penfolds Ambassador.

What an amazing night to end my weekday meeting up with all my fellow friends and wine lovers, especially meeting up with Penfolds Brand Ambassador Patrick Dowling! I bet it’s his passion that makes Patrick the wine making ambassador. He focused on the branding, education and events where he is able to share the history of the brand and the wine theory.

Organised by Winecellars, we had Penfolds Bin 389 (one of Patrick’s favourite wines from the collection is Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz – often referred to as ‘Baby Grange.’), St. Henri Shiraz 2011 (first launched in 1957), Bin 2,  and many more! Penfolds also took the time to introduce their new Penfolds Max’s Shiraz which is a tribute to former Chief Winemaker, Max Schubert, a legend in Penfolds history.

Every wine tasting experience is unique and each Penfolds wines are certainly amazing. On this special occasion, Patrick would have a few intervals to introduce and explain the wines that are served.

Penfolds has been recognised as the ‘World’s Most Admired Wine Brand’ by Drinks International in their annual poll, following a successful year of honours.

At some point, some of us felt hungry and we started to change our station nearer to the food table. Then everybody started to notice there was food! Haha.

Thank you Winecellars and sabaheats and for the exclusive Penfolds food and wine tasting at Giant City Mall. Wait. Giant City Mall? Yes, you are correct. There will be a non-halal section that offers a wide selection of wine and Non-halal food selections to butchery. Just like the one in Everrise. Gonna explore there soon!
