Love wine? Chances are that you’ve heard of luxe Australian winemaker Penfolds. The centuries old winemaker is one of the more popular in the States today, and offers a variety of moderate and high-end vintages, including the limited edition “2004 Block 42,” a special order wine that sold for $168,000 per bottle.
This week, the winery is celebrating a luxe, but slightly more accessible release — their 2009 Penfolds Grange Shiraz — with a dinner at the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco’s Parallel 37 restaurant. The average $650 to $785 per bottle wine is being paired with Chef Michael Rotondo’s globally inspired California cuisine.
Reservations are still available for the six-course dinner, which will be paired with iconic wines from the Penfolds Collection by Tim Irwin, the Penfolds Ambassador.
