Penfolds is an iconic Australian winemaker founded in 1844 by Christopher Rawson Penfold, an English physician who emigrated to South Australia with his wife Mary Penfold. It is one of Australia’s oldest wineries.

Decorated with international trophies, gold medals, and a multiple recipient of the highest possible scores from the industry’s leading critics; Penfolds is undoubtedly the most famous Australian name in the world of wine today.

Collectors, connoisseurs, and investors alike eagerly await the release of the famous Penfolds Bin series wines each year. These are wines with rich histories, fascinating back stories, are of consistently high quality, with wonderful ageing potential, and all have the trademark complexity, sophistication, depth, and finesse that is the unmistakable Penfolds style.

Winemaker, wine judge, critic, author and aristologist Darren Gall will travel to Port Moresby to bring us up close and intimate with these amazing wines through a series of remarkable events. Here he will introduce you to the magnificent Penfolds Bin series wines like you have never seen them before; guests will get to know their rich histories, personalities, and inimitable charm, seeing for themselves just what makes these wines so special.


There will be a Master Class, where Darren will taste and discuss each wine with us, exploring the vineyards, varieties, winemaking, and the unique expression and personality of each wine.


This will be followed by an incredible dinner, created, and prepared by Silver Leaf executive chef Jerome Tremoulet, who was previously the executive chef at Penfolds own Magill Estate restaurant at their Adelaide winery. Each dish will be specifically created by Jermone and his team to complement and highlight these incredibly special wines.

Join us over three incredible evenings on the 25th, 26th and 27th of April.

As we remember the famous ANZAC spirit, let us come together over a magnificent celebration of Australia’s finest wines.


Towering over the PNG National Stadium like a beacon of modernist luxury, The Stanley Hotel and Suites is in the commercial and government district of Waigani in Port Moresby. Connected to Vision City, the premier contemporary shopping destination in the capital. The hotel is a landmark of luxury and sophistication, providing five-star amenities, grand gastronomy, refined hospitality, and exceptional personal service.


High up on the top floor of the hotel, overlooking the greenspaces of Port Moresby’s sporting headquarters, housing the Sir John Guise Stadium, the PNG national stadium and the PNG Sports Foundation is Silver Leaf, Port Moresby’s premier fine dining destination.

With soaring ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and panoramic views, combined with a modern, elegant design and a private club vibe, you instantly feel like this is the place to be in this city.


Executive Chef Jerome Tremoulet is an outstanding asset, not only for the restaurant, also for lovers of fine and inspired dining in Port Moresby. Formerly the head chef at Magill Estate restaurant for Penfolds Winery -as part of a highly regarded and recognized cooking journey; Phil Lempert, food editor for ‘Today’ on the American News Channel MSNBC reported at the time:

“French-born Jerome Tremoulet joined Penfolds Magill Estate Restaurant in Australia in 2005 as executive chef. With his understanding and passion for fine food and great wines, combined with his infectious enthusiasm, Tremoulet brings a fresh new flavour to South Australia’s most famous fine dining winery restaurant, nestled in the heart of its winemaking region.

Having trained at a classical French school, Tremoulet developed and honed his extensive skills over 20 years of experience in some of the great kitchens throughout France, Switzerland, England, America, and Australia. He spent two years at Saint Clair Le Traiteur, one of the most prestigious catering companies in Paris.

Tremoulet joined Penfolds’ Magill Estate Restaurant from the Four Seasons Hotel in Newport Beach, California, where he was executive sous chef. His style combines classic French flavours with modern Australian ingredients. While being a creative chef, Tremoulet maintains a deep respect for technique, a delicate touch, and a passion for fresh, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients — all of which combine to produce exceptional results, especially for a restaurant serving contemporary cuisine with a classical influence.

Of course, Tremoulet works closely with the Penfolds winemaking team to ensure that the food and wine pairings not only work together perfectly but are also infinitely interesting—and often surprising.”

There is perhaps no better chef in the world today to create an extraordinary Penfolds food and wine pairing degustation, the experience promises to be Port Moresby’s culinary event of the year.
