Natural cork is a raw material that’s packed with advanced technology to deliver the best possible wine closure. From processing to quality control, cork producers are using the same technology that can be found in the world’s top laboratories, such as gas chromatography and 3-D imaging. The natural cork stoppers in your wine prove that nature and technology can be brought together to achieve sustainable, quality products.

Processing

From bark to bottle. Using skills passed down through generations of families, harvesters carefully remove the cork oak bark by hand without causing harm to the trees. The slabs of bark then journey from the forest to nearby facilities, where several research-backed steps are taken throughout the production process to reduce contamination, boost efficiency, and ensure quality wine stoppers.
