InterContinental Sydney Double Bay Partners with Penfolds

October 17, 2014 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

InterContinental Sydney Double Bay is delighted to announce its new partnership with prestigious Australian winemaker Penfolds, coinciding with today’s first release of The Penfolds Collection.
Exemplifying the hotel’s commitment to distinct and luxurious guest experiences, 2012 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz and 2012 Bin 311 Tumbarumba Chardonnay will feature as the house pours at Stockroom restaurant, with an extended selection of Penfolds labels also featured on the wine list.

Stockroom’s newly-appointed Head Sommelier, Kabir Antoniak, who has worked with wine lists at Aria Sydney, Rockpool Bar & Grill Perth and North Adelaide’s Daniel O’Connell, has handpicked and paired iconic Penfolds labels with the restaurant’s menu, collaborating with Executive Chef Julien Pouteau.

“Securing a partnership with Penfolds and offering some of Australia’s best wine as our house pours sets the standard for the unrivalled experience we will deliver guests dining at Stockroom and throughout the hotel,” Mr Antoniak said.

“With its robust, full-bodied palate, Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz is the ideal complement to Stockroom’s selection of robata-grilled dishes while the Bin 311 Tumbarumba Chardonnay, with punchy citrus overtones, pairs perfectly with our fresh seafood dishes.”

Stockroom and Penfolds both celebrate heritage, a sense of place and appreciation for the best local produce – Stockroom through its market-fresh pantry-style approach to dining, paying homage to the 200-year-old rich farming legacy of Double Bay, and Penfolds through its standing as a 170-year-old heritage-listed Australian icon.

In addition to Stockroom, Penfolds wines will be showcased at InterContinental Sydney Double Bay’s Stillery gin bar, Rooftop Pool and Lounge, exclusive Club InterContinental lounge and private courtyard, and in the private bars of its 140 guest rooms and suites.

Penfolds Koonunga Hill will be available for events held in the hotel’s range of flexible spaces, such as the seven first-floor function rooms including the open plan Grand Ballroom with capacity to host celebrations of up to 495 guests cocktail-style.

Penfolds is the first partnership to be announced by InterContinental Sydney Double Bay.
