Penfolds Grange set sold for a record AUS$431,000

A complete set of Penfolds Grange has sold for $430,000* in the Langton’s Penfolds Rewards of Patience auction – a world record price.

Christmas came early for a Sydney wine lover who successfully won the bidding war of the coveted set, which contains all vintages of Penfolds Grange from 1951 to 2015 (64 bottles in total). 

“This Penfolds set is unique because some of the bottles are signed by Max Schubert, Penfolds first Chief Winemaker and the man behind Penfolds Grange. Many of the older vintages have also been certified in the Penfolds clinic,” said Langton’s Head of Auctions Tamara Grischy. 

The previous record was from December 2019, when a set of Penfolds Grange sold for $372,800*.

“A Penfolds Grange set is a wine collector’s ultimate dream. It has been estimated there are only around 30 complete Penfolds Grange sets in existence in the world, making them incredibly rare,” she explained.
