Penfolds to Increase Focus on Glass Closures


Penfold’s chief winemaker does not believe screwcaps are the future of closures, at least in the higher end of the market, revealing that the company is now investigating glass as the best alternative to cork for some of its bottles.

All of Penfolds’ white wines have been under screwcap since 2004, with screw-capped wines stretching back to 1971 providing a solid base for comparing their development. However its red wines are still closed with a mixture of cork, synthetic cork and screwcaps.

Gago said his main issue with screwcaps for red wines was not necessarily the ageing of the wines, as this has not yet been thoroughly tested over time, (the oldest Penfolds wine under screw cap dates from the late 1990s), but the fact that using a screwcap masks the impact of heat damage.

Kennards Waterloo Expands to 3,049 Storage Spaces

The scarcity of space in Sydney has compelled Kennards Self Storage to squeeze more out of its existing properties.

Kennards Self Storage WaterlooKennards Waterloo

The family-owned business’s Waterloo property which already boasts 2,491 storage spaces, is now about to open another 558 spaces with the addition of 2 new levels on top of an exiting 2 storey building. The new spaces will be available for rent in October. This will bring the total number of available spaces to 3,049 spaces. In contrast Australian industry average storage centres are about 350 spaces.

Waterloo is the largest asset in the Kennards Self Storage portfolio and probably also the largest self storage centre in Australia.

Located on corner of Burke and O’Dea Ave in the heart of the south Sydney apartment construction frenzy, Kennards Waterloo is providing the new residents the extra space they need. The company is capitalising on the redevelopment of old industrial sites into a new high density residential neighbourhood by expanding the property which was experiencing high occupancy.

Would You Sleep Out In a Box?

1,500 Kennards Storage Boxes are making their way to a patch of grass at Hickson Road The Rocks in preparation for this year’s 2016 Sleep Under the Stars Charity Event to raise money for Homelessness and our youth at risk.


As Gold Sponsors this includes Kennards Self Storage donating the boxes for participants to get creative with and build themselves a shelter for the evening.

Sadly a cardboard box is home to many young people living on our streets.

“Donating boxes seemed a perfect way for us to contribute and help raise awareness. Kennards Self Storage have supported Stepping Stone House since it first opened its doors in 1989. During that time we’ve seen hundreds of young residents go through the house turning their lives around. These kids have been subject to poverty, abuse, alcoholism and drugs through no choice of their own. Stepping Stone House gives them a chance in this world, a purpose. Stepping Stone House surround them with love and support and teaches them the skills and resilience they need to survive. It’s a beautiful thing” – Fiona Harding Kennards Self Storage National Account Manager.

Helping From The Heart, Kindness Is Catching

My name is Linda Pang and I’m the founder of Kindness Is Catching (KiC) . I wanted to write to thank you for your company’s participation in KiC’s 2016 Winter Care Kits and Warmies project.


I started Kindness Is Catching last year following on from Feel Good Feb. Just me, wanting to ignore the many recent troubles of our world and to bring a positive vibe and attention to all that was good. To be grateful for all that we have, to encourage our children to have compassion and kindness and for them to see the world as a happy place. I am a Primary School teacher and a Special Education teacher, so my passion for helping people who are less fortunate than ourselves and involving our children’s generation is genuine.

It was my wish to harness the kindness of our local community to help homeless people feel cared for and to make wintertime in Sydney a bit more comfortable. In 2015, my goal was to collect 100 Winter Care Kits and a few knitted scarves, beanies and gloves.
