Do you own some Penfolds red wine that has been in the bottle for 15 years or more?

If so, then the rarely-offered and internationally acclaimed Penfolds Re-corking Clinic may be your only chance to have the health of your prized Penfolds wines assessed by a team of top wine experts – including Penfolds Chief Winemaker Peter Gago.

The only service of its kind in the world, the Penfolds Re-corking Clinic is a delicate and exacting process.

Wines are firstly inspected in the bottle and those whose levels have dropped significantly may be opened, tested, and have their quality assessed. If the wine is deemed to be in a sound condition, it is topped up with the most recent vintage, re-corked, and provided with a new Penfolds capsule.

The Winemaker then certifies the wine, attaching a certificate to the back of the bottle stating that the wine has been successfully re-corked at the 2008 Wellington Clinic. This process guarantees and certifies the wine for quality, ensuring attendees leave the clinic with their re-corked collection in excellent condition, ready for continued cellaring or to enjoy at their leisure.

Langton’s auction house will also be on site to give wine owners a current market valuation of their collections.
