Captain Cook Cruises partners with Penfolds for a Grange Dinner Cruise


What a marriage between a cruise liner and a renowned wine producer company can deliver? Well, most people will think about a gourmet dining coupled with a selection of fine wines while floating on Sydney Harbour.

Well, they are right! Captain Cook Cruises has made a partnership with Penfolds and the deal is going to present the guests with a new prestige dining experience.

MV Sydney 2000 will offer the new dining service, the Platinum Penfolds Grange Dinner Cruise, to its guests. Eating there will be a delightful experience for the fine wine lovers because it includes a six-course menu along with a complementing platinum selection of Penfolds bin and vintage wines. You will be able to enjoy the penultimate course with a full bottle of Penfolds Grange, South Australia’s one of official Heritage Icons and arguably the most fêted wine in the country.

The six-course menu includes some exotic, gourmet items such as Osso Bucco ragu with pumpkin gnocchi, seared aged angus beef fillet coupled with seeded mustard jus and sautéed mushrooms, and more. The platinum Penfolds selection includes some of the finest-quality wines in the country – Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz, Winemakercellar Reserve Pinot Gris, Grange, and more. The cruise operator also upgraded the existing Penfolds gold selection in their Gold Penfolds Dinner Cruise.

Captain Cook Cruises’ General Manager, Anthony Haworth, sounded excited about their partnership with Penfolds and the new cruise with the new exotic dining service. He hoped that their new initiative would take dining and cruising on Sydney Harbour to a new level.
