When I am asked about the Gold Penfolds Dinner I respond with the Admiral's favourite dinner table question. "When was the last time you blew out your birthday candles and wished for something for yourself?".
Rarely does an evening pass without a young couple becoming engaged, a grown family gathers to celebrate a golden anniversary, company directors meet in a social setting or an international dignitary experiences Sydney at its very best. But as the Captain, my favourite guests are the quiet couples of non-descript ages or backgrounds who come just to spend time with each other.
From the moment our Gold Penfolds Dinner guests arrive they become the most important people in the world. Priority boarding, sparkling wine under a starry sky (constellation Crux is a must see for any visitor from the northern hemisphere), gold restaurant seating with views only comparable to my seat in the Bridge directly above, the sultry entertainment of our lounge singer or live band, a six course tasting menu featuring all my favourite Australian specialties all accompanied by Penfolds gold selection of bin and vintage Australian wines or spirits if you prefer.
