Penfolds Re-corking Clinic checks into the UK for the first time in five years.

PenfoldsOn Tuesday 22nd October 2013, Australian fine wine brand Penfolds will set up its unique Re-corking Clinic in prestigious London hotel the Berkeley, offering collectors of Penfolds the ultimate after sales service for their wine, unique to the winery.

Since 1991, well over 100,000 bottles have been assessed at Penfolds Re-corking Clinics. These Clinics provide owners of Penfolds wines with a distinctive and intimate wine health examination, as Penfolds winemakers visually inspect the wine, open if necessary, assess the quality, top up (if appropriate), certify and re-capsule bottles, consultatively and clinically.

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’, discuss drinking windows, cellaring tips and much more. It’s also a chance to engage first hand with almost 170 years of continuous winemaking endeavour and history.

Throughout the day, an expert from leading international auctioneers Christies will be on hand to investigate the investment value of prized wine possessions, family heirlooms and drinking investments.

Peter Gago, Chief Winemaker of Penfolds, says of the London Clinic, “We’re delighted to be bringing the Penfolds Re-Corking Clinic back to the UK.  We’ve been running these Clinics around the world for over 20 years and 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”.

Penfolds Re-corking Clinics have been staged across the world since 1991, assessing well over 100,000 bottles.  The latest Clinic will run from 10am until 6pm on Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in the Ballroom at the Berkeley hotel ( Registration opens on the 1st September 2013 and booking an appointment is essential.
