Cork. It’s more than a detail.

Why is it that winemakers worldwide entrust cork to preserve their wine? In fact, 70% of all wine stoppers are made of cork, including the vast majority of the world’s best wines. While the relationship between wine and cork is rooted in centuries of tradition, and the romance and rituals that have evolved around opening a bottle of wine are treasured by wine lovers everywhere, winemakers are above all about making great tasting wines, and the simple fact is, cork makes wine taste better. This 100% natural, renewable and sustainable natural resource is a miracle material perfectly suited to aid in the preservation and development of wine – for winemakers, the “final piece of the puzzle” in the winemaking process.
