Penfolds Re-Corking Clinics

Registrations are now being accepted for Australian and New Zealand clinics. To register please complete the online form.

The Penfolds Re-corking Clinics offer the owners of Penfolds red wines which are 15 years and older the opportunity to have their wines assessed by a winemaker, and if necessary, opened, tasted, topped up and re-capsuled on the spot.

The art of re-corking is a delicate process.  If opened, the bottle of wine will be tested by the winemaker and assessed for its quality.  If the wine is deemed to be a good example of the style and vintage, it will then be topped up with a recent vintage of the same wine, re-corked, provided with a new Penfolds capsule, and then certified by the winemaker.  This process certifies the wine for quality, ensuring attendees leave the Clinic with their re-corked collection in an excellent condition, ready for continued cellaring or to enjoy at leisure.

As well as a wine "health check" the Penfolds Re-corking Clinics allow Penfolds enthusiasts to receive a market appraisal of their wines.
