This is great after-sales service for collectors of Penfolds red wines. The winemaking team, led by Peter Gago, opens, samples, tops up and recorks your 15+ year old Penfolds reds. If it’s thumbs up on quality, they top the wine up with the current vintage, recork, re-capsule and attach a signed certificate to the bottle. If it’s thumbs down? You get a new cork and advice to drink it now.
