I’LL TELL YOU WHICH
CORK YOU NEED

IT’S THE WINES THAT DICTATE THE STOPPERS

All our stoppers are the result of a serious commitment to quality, but not all of them serve the same wine or sparkling wine. It is necessary to understand each need in order to find the best alternative.

NATURAL CORK STOPPERS, Naturally Better

Natural cork stoppers are naturally versatile, suitable for any type of wine, regardless of their rotation time and bottle shape, playing an active role in the gradual ageing of wines.

VIVA® SPARKLING WINE CORK STOPPERS, Naturally Resistant

VIVA® cork stoppers are designed for sparkling wines, with insulation performance and resistance to high pressures.

SILKTOP® TECHNICAL CORK STOPPERS, Naturally Technical

SILKTOP® cork stoppers are designed for medium-class wines, with properties similar to those of natural stoppers.

NEO® MICRO AGGLOMERATED CORK STOPPERS, Naturally Reliable

Micro-Agglomerate NEO® cork stoppers have the well-known look and feel of natural cork.

EVACORK® COLMATED CORK STOPPERS, Naturally Competitive
