Northrop & Johnson, the leader in luxury yachting and lifestyle, has announced a new partnership with premier luxury wine producer, Penfolds. Through the partnership, Penfolds will offer exclusive access to special products and events for Northrop & Johnson clients, and both brands will collaborate on unique events for their shared clientele.
“We’re very excited to partner with a brand as prestigious as Penfolds,” says Northrop & Johnson President & COO Daniel Ziriakus. “Penfolds is world-renowned for making remarkable wines and is therefore a perfect addition to the collection of luxury lifestyle partners our clients have access to.”
Born of a pioneering spirit in 1844, Penfolds has manifested a lasting legacy of patience, commitment, courage, and passion. Penfolds is the proud product of the prestigious winemaking past of founders Mary and Christopher Penfold, who brought grapes to the bountiful Australian soil and sunshine. Innovative greats, such as Alfred Vesey, Ray Beckwith and Max Schubert, celebrated winemaking legends who pushed liquid development to extraordinary new heights. It is with a pioneering spirit and curiosity from the brand’s custodian winemakers that this still rings true after nearly two centuries. Penfolds honors and celebrates traditional winemaking values as they cultivate great new traditions for the next generations. Today, 177 years later, this legacy continues, and the house remains one of Australia’s most revered…now and evermore.
“Working with a celebrated winemaker like Penfolds expands our ability to provide clients with the ultimate luxury lifestyle experience, whether they are at a N&J event or aboard a yacht they own or charter,” says Northrop & Johnson Partnerships Managing Director Daniel Wade. “Through the relationship with Penfolds, Northrop & Johnson clients will enjoy exclusive benefits including access to rare wines, special wine pairing experiences and unique access to the Penfolds Private Estate.”
Penfolds boasts a long list of accolades, including Robb Report’s 2015 Top Wine in its annual Best of the Best. Penfolds also is the only Australian Winery to receive 100-point scores from Wine Spectator (US) and Wine Advocate (US) for the same vintage (2008 Grange). Additionally,
Penfold’s Grange is one of only 12 wines to achieve 100-point scores from both for the same vintage. Furthermore, Penfolds was named the World’s Most Admired Wine Brand in 2016 and 2019 from Drinks International Magazine and has received Winery of the Year honors 29 times, more than any other winery in the world, by Wine & Spirits Magazine.
