The ultimate wine health-check

Open your cellar, unlock your wine cabinet and bring out those red (and white) caps! Penfolds winemakers are preparing to embark on a mission to quality check Penfolds wines aged 15 years and older around the country.

No other winery in the world offers such a comprehensive and complimentary after-sales service. Well over 100,000 bottles have been assessed at Penfolds Re-corking Clinics since 1991.

Penfolds… discussing wine history

These Clinics provide owners of Penfolds wines a distinctive and intimate wine health examination. Penfolds winemakers visually inspect the wine, open if necessary, assess quality, top up (if appropriate), certify and re-capsule bottles.

More than a health-check for your wine, a clinic appointment also affords a personal opportunity to meet the maker, recount the wine’s ‘story’ and discuss drinking windows and cellaring tips. It’s also an opportunity to engage first hand with almost 170 years of continuous winemaking endeavours and history.

Experts from leading Australian Wine Auction House, Langton’s, are available to investigate the investment value of prized wine possessions, family heirlooms and drinking investments.

Peter Gago, Chief Winemaker said, “We’ve been staging Penfolds Re-corking Clinics across the globe now for more than twenty years …. We’ve opened a Pandora’s Box of a huge array of wines spanning numerous decades. The experience is as fresh as it was back in the beginning—no two Clinics have been alike, no two stories the same. It’s all about people, humanity, emotion and wine, the Clinics are imminently rewarding”.

After the Australian dates, Penfolds Re-corking Clinics travel to New York and Houston.
