The Capella Singapore – Library Exclusive Room
1 The Knolls
enfolds winemakers Peter Gago and Stephanie Dutton are bringing the long-awaited Penfolds Re-corking Clinic back to Singapore after two extremely successful clinics in 2008 and 2013. At this one-of-a-kind after-sales service to be held at The Capella Singapore on November 14, Penfolds red wines aged 15 years and older will be examined free of charge. Local collectors can also look forward to a one-on-one time with Peter and Stephanie, as they share the history and personality of Penfolds wines as well as provide valuable tips on cellaring, wine care and peak drinking windows.
More than 150,000 bottles from collectors around the world have been accessed at the Penfolds Re-corking clinics since 1991. This art of re-corking is an extremely delicate, highly technical and specialised process. The bottles are first assessed visually and then, if deemed necessary, the winemakers will open the bottle to further assess the quality and maturity of wine. If the wine is deemed to be in a sound condition, it will be topped up with the most recent vintage, re-corked and provided with a new Penfolds capsule. The winemaker will then certify the wine by attaching a certificate to the back of the bottle stating that the wine has been successfully re-corked and this certification will also be recorded in their archives.
Online registration for this exclusive and unique service is now open, but spaces are limited and filling fast.
