Join us on, April 29th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm as we welcome DLynn Proctor to Marquis Wine Cellars for a tasting of a selection of Penfolds wines. DLynn was named “Best New Sommelier in America” by Wine & Spirits Magazine in 2008 and was one of the featured men in the movie, SOMM. DLynn joined Penfolds in 2011 as Winemaking Ambassador for the Americas, which means that he travels around North and South America promoting the Penfolds brand and educating consumers and industry people alike, about one of the world’s most iconic wine producers.
Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The Penfolds winemaking philosophy revolves around single vineyard or single block, single region or sub-region and multi-region or multi-varietal blending. While the majority of its vineyards are located in South Australia, Penfolds sources fruit from over 220 vineyards and grape growers across Australia including a large portion of fruit that is sourced from key regions like the Barossa Valley and Coonawarra.
On the 29th we will be pouring a selection of Penfolds wines including the 2012 Bin 311 Chardonnay, the 2010 Bin 128 Shiraz and the 2012 Barossa Valley Shiraz RWT plus several others.
