Pearl stoppers show our continuous commitment toward sustainability and the value chain of the product. The cork shavings, following the punching of natural cork stoppers, are carefully selected, processed and reduced to uniformly-sized particles through a number of mechanical operations.
MASILVA cork stoppers are used for some of the world's best sparkling wines. Sparkling wine presents challenges in terms of stoppers, which have to be able to withstand higher pressures while maintaining consistency and the specified insertion and extraction forces.
At the age of 234, the Whistler owes the name to the sound from countless birds that lay on its branches. Situated in Águas de Moura, this cork oak tree has already been stripped more than 20 times, being classified as “Tree of Public Interest” since 1988 and registered in the Guinness Book of Records as “the largest cork oak tree in the world”.
Over the last 45 years MASilva has established itself as an industry technology leader and its proprietary cork cleaning processes are recognized worldwide. With the implementation of this new state-of-the-art testing technology we once again demonstrate our determination to be the leading manufacturer of the finest premium cork.
On July 20th MASilva has inaugurated its new unit dedicated to the production of sparkling wine and technical cork stoppers. They are more than 6 thousand sqm exclusively dedicated to correspond more effectively to the market and customers demands in terms of quality and efficiency, and to create more competitiveness and performance using cutting-edge technology on manufacturing and cork-grading processes.
The quality of our products is one of the things we’re more proud of.

"We have decided to use OnebyOne corks after a carefully evaluation because this is the answer to a challenge that affects all wine producers. There’s all this attention and so much work in vineyards and winemaking and in the end we bottle a wine like Brunello di Montalcino which could be put in risk because of the cork.»
