Penfolds Kalimna Wine Club

Penfolds Kalimna Wine Club (5)

A surprised parcel for the Kalimna’s member from Penfolds

It was some tokens like handy notebook in one of the past few years but not really a present for every year.

Anyway, it’s always grateful to receive and open the gifts from Penfolds. It’s elegant, personalized and packed beautifully.

The little token is a Ah-So Wine Cork tool ! Also a member card which is robust and heavy. The card is made of metal, about 1-2mm thick !!

The wine tool looks good. It’s a Monopol Ah-So two prong bottle opener. Not sure if it is really useful for most of the members, especially for those in Australia. Unless the members are passionate collector of old vintage or Grange, otherwise the easy screwcap is the most usual anti-clockwise motion to enjoy a bottle !

The Ah-So opener is made in Germany so I am expecting a good and life-long lasting quality. Anyway, it’s a great looking and useful tool I believe.

Oh… and the most important message is the new requirement to sustain the membership. The member will require a minimum spend of $800 annually.

I am not really a big fans of the large winery like Penfolds. However, the Grange would certainly be one of the most collectable Aussie wines. Indeed, I have a quick check on the Penfolds website but seems like there’s not much benefits are offering to the members right now except for free shipping. Although the 2008 and 2010 Grange are quite attractive, the listed price is not the most competitive. Nevertheless, will see if I could still remains in the member list in the next year !
