Today, ORACLE TEAM USA and Penfolds announced a new partnership at a private event in San Francisco. Penfolds has become the Official Supplier of ORACLE TEAM USA, the defending America's Cup champions, and will have their iconic collection of wines served at all team events and hospitality areas across the globe.
At a special event in San Francisco, host city for the 34(th) America's Cup, Penfolds Managing Director Gary Burnand said, "This is a proud partnership for both Penfolds and ORACLE TEAM USA. For Penfolds to be associated with the highest echelon of yacht racing is a natural fit. For ORACLE TEAM USA it brings another luxury supplier that will elevate the quality of their hospitality experience. Together I am confident we will both win next September. I also encourage our Penfolds customer family, including restaurants and fine wine partners, to show their support of the defending America's Cup Champions by having Penfolds wines available."
"With almost 170 years of winemaking heritage, Penfolds is recognized as one of the most trusted names in fine wine, and it just happens to come from my home country of Australia," said Jimmy Spithill, ORACLE TEAM USA skipper. "I have long enjoyed Penfolds, and I am proud we are partnering with such an iconic winery."
