Penfolds is taking over Carriageworks for three nights, introducing its new 2022 collection with an immersive event series headlined by one of Australia's favourite pop acts. Between Thursday, August 4 and Saturday, August 6, Venture Beyond by Penfolds will see Carriageworks turn into a hub of food, wine, music and art.

Visually, the space will be transformed with local art collective and gallery Babekühl creating a multi-disciplinary short film depicting Penfolds' winemaking process. And accompanying the film? A space-themed set menu crafted by Sydney's renowned degustation king Nelly Robinson, from Surry Hills fine-diner nel.

Robinson and the nel team created the viral KFC degustation earlier this year, and have conjured up a range of boundary-pushing set menus centred around the likes of Moulin Rouge!, Disney flicks and Christmas. This time around, he's created a series of intergalactic dishes designed to pair with Penfolds wines.

Topping off the lineup is electro-pop duo Client Liaison, who will be performing across all three nights. The band will be bringing their catalogue of hits to the events with the help of producer and DJ Dan Lywood, who will be keeping the tunes rolling before and after their sets.

Tickets include entry to the event as well as a stand-out meal from nel, a glass of three of the new wines from The Penfolds Collection 2022 and vinos from the Penfolds Max Collection throughout the night. Plus, for an additional $30, you can add a guided tasting of seven wines from the latest collection.

Venture Beyond by Penfolds is on from Thursday, August 4 till Saturday, August 6. Head to the website to grab your ticket.
