NAPA, Calif., July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Penfolds is proud to make its debut as The Official Wine Partner of the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards season. This is the first time Penfolds has partnered with the Television Academy to provide their prized wines to Emmy nominees, presenters and members of the Television Academy. To celebrate, each Primetime Emmy winner will receive a bottle of Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz in a commemorative wooden box, specially engraved with his or her name.
Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz is often referred to as 'Baby Grange', as components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Penfolds flagship wine, Grange (SRP $850.00U.S.) Penfolds Grange is one of the most collected wines of the world today, and one signed bottle of the 1951 (first vintage) was recently purchased for $65,000AUD.
"We are thrilled Penfolds was selected as the exclusive pour for the prestigious Emmy Awards on September 20th," states Barry Sheridan, Marketing Vice President. "Penfolds is synonymous with luxury and quality and we are honored to pour our award-winning wines to the most talented members of the Television Industry."
A larger selection of Penfolds wines will also be available to sample at the Penfolds' bar, as guests mingle at the ultimate Emmy after-party, the Governor's Ball.
Andy Samberg will host the 67th Emmy Awards telecast, Sunday, September 20. live on Fox from the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
Penfolds has been producing an impressive array of wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine into the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of standout wines, both white and red, have been released under the Penfolds masthead.
