Making remarkable wines since 1844.
With age comes character.
A unique service in the world of wine, Re-corking Clinics are a complimentary service offered by Penfolds where you can have a winemaker assess your Penfolds red wines with the ultimate 'health check'.
Re-corking clinics history
Since their inception in 1991, over 130,000 bottles across four continents have been brought to clinics and checked by our winemakers. Now an institution, the service was inspired by Max Schubert, the creator of Grange, who would re-cork old vintages of Grange for his friends.
What is a clinic?
At a clinic you will talk face-to-face with our winemaking team. Re-corking Clinics allow wine enthusiasts the opportunity to, as required, open and visually inspect their wine, assess the quality, top up, certify, and re-capsule their prized bottles, arresting any further deterioration due to leakage or low levels.
The service is available for all Penfolds red wines, aged fifteen years or older. To determine whether your wine is in need of re-corking, we recommend downloading our digital ullage measure.
