Hi all,

I just joined this great forum after searching info how to fix my italian corker.
I am a winemaker (and grape grower) from Barossa, now retired.
Used to make and sell natural wines (in clay pots) before Covid but then got fed up with restaurants not paying their bills on time and now all the wine that I make is for me and my family, only selling some of the grapes.
Still produce around 700 - 800 L (2 barriques and a hogshead this vintage).
Happy to answer questions and always keen to learn new tricks.

Cheers
Stan

Welcome! What variety of grapes are pictured? I'd love a clay amphora.

What is wrong with your Italian corker? I took the jaws of mine apart to clean up rust and repaint. It was a real challenge to get the brass jaws reseated but we managed. Hint one, take a picture before you do anything and hint two, have a helper because it takes more than two hands to fix anything on the corker.

Greetings - there are a few Southern Hemisphere folk drifting around WMT. I’m across the Tasman Sea in NZ. I have great memories of the Barossa Valley. Had my honeymoon there in November / December of 1988. I keep telling my bride we need to get back to that lovely area of South Australia.
