NAPA, Calif., Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Open your cellar, unlock your wine cabinet and bring out those red (and white) capsules! Penfolds winemakers are preparing to embark on a mission to quality check Penfolds wines (15 years and older) around the United States. No other winery in the world offers such a comprehensive, and complimentary, after-sales service on such a global scale.
Over 100,000 bottles have been assessed at Penfolds Re-corking Clinics since 1991. 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, 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 an opportunity to engage first hand with almost 170 years of continuous winemaking endeavor and history. Experts from Christie's Auction House are available to investigate the investment value of prized wine possessions, family heirlooms and drinking investments.
Peter Gago, Penfolds 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."
Appointments are essential. Email [email protected] or call 707.299.3252 to reserve a time.
