Treasury Wine Estates will offer a luxury wine travel experience at DFS Masters of Wines and Spirits in Singapore (22-24 March). For the first time at the event, guests will be able to purchase a four-day, three-night bespoke travel itinerary that includes a dinner at the Penfolds Magill Estate Restaurant hosted by Penfolds Chief Winemaker, Peter Gago.
The trip to Magill Estate is available to groups with four travellers, and features a helicopter flight into Magill Estate from the Kingsford Homestead. There will be multiple meals paired with fine Penfolds wines, and the four travellers will each receive a bottle of 100 pointed 2008 Penfolds Grange.
In addition at this weekend’s event, Treasury Wine Estates will showcase the Penfolds g3, the six-litre Penfolds Bin 707 Imperial in a one-of-a-kind hand-crafted gift-box, and a special three-vintage Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Collection.
Treasury Wine Estates General Manager, Global Travel Simon Carter said: “We are honoured to partner with DFS at this premier event to highlight unique and much sought-after luxury wines in our portfolio. We understand that luxury travellers are constantly seeking special experiences, and as such, we’ve unveiled the Penfolds Magill Estate travel experience for the first time here.
“We are also highlighting some of our most popular wines for luxury travellers – incredibly collectable wines. We strongly believe that working with a quality and trusted partner, such as DFS, allows us to leverage on each other’s strengths to further elevate the travel retail sector.”
The Penfolds g3 blends the 2008, 2012 and 2014 Penfolds Grange vintages to create a new Penfolds expression. Each individual vintage delivers depth of character, and honours Penfolds flagship, Grange, said the brand owner. Only 1,200 bottles are available, 23 at this event. Each bottle of the Penfolds g3 is wax-sealed by hand and individually numbered.
A further highlight of the event is the Penfolds Bin 707 Imperial, a cabernet sauvignon that represents the Penfolds ‘house style’, and that has “proven cellaring potential”. The company stated: “The Penfolds 707 is a significant and rare wine destined to be enjoyed at a milestone occasion, and only a handful of Imperials were ever bottled from our most notable wines and vintages, with the opportunity to own one of these remarkable bottles truly unique, and only one bottle is available at the event.”
Collectors of fine wines will also find the three-vintage Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon at Masters of Wines and Spirits. Beringer Chief Winemakers Myron Nightingale and Ed Sbragia created the Private Reserve programme in 1977, and the three-bottled edition will offer collectors vintages from 2006, 2009, and 2011, all in Magnum bottles. There are two sets available at this year’s DFS Masters of Wine and Spirits.
