Natural "Super" Wine Corks are natural wine corks intended for wine storage of up to 9 years. Natural wine corks are punched from cork oak bark harvested once every 9 years, then dried for up to 2 more years. The wine corks are punched from the cork oak bark and then sorted by quality; the fewer the lenticels (crevise like imperfections) the better the wine cork. "Super" is a very high quality natural wine cork.

Made from 100% natural cork harvested in Portugal. All corks are TCA treated, carefully handled and ready for bottling. Large orders are packaged in S02 packaging. This wine cork will compress to fit standard wine bottles - corker is required. We recommend a floor corker or better.
Second Review: We have now used all 1000 corks and have had some time in the bottle. There were only two corks out of the 1000 that did not seal properly. One had an internal flaw and one had a smaller diameter and leaked immediately. The one thing that is a little irritating is the variation in diameter. There is a variation in the amount of pressure needed with the corker. When opening a bottle, larger diameter corks require more pressure to insert the corkscrew and smaller diameter corks will actually "spin" in the neck of the bottle as the corkscrew is inserted. We have encountered one bottle with "cork taint". Other than that, they work fine. We are a commercial Vineyard, not a Winery. We do "home wine making" for experiments in the vineyard and for sales samples to sell grapes, (Oh, yes...we do drink some of it!).

Experimenting Wine Maker
Chose this company because I could order a small number of corks. The corks look good and the order shipped and arrived promptly. The packing slip came with some tips regarding the use of these corks that were much appreciated by this home brewer. At this point I do not know if these will go through my lever style hand corker since it will be a few months before the wine is ready to bottle. I have always used a #8 agglomerated cork but would like to try aging some wines longer than 2-3 years so I'm hoping these work. Cheers!

We bottled 45 cases this year, some with these corks and some purchased elsewhere as a trial. Both worked well in our floor corker with brass jaws. These had a few more flaws than the others, but were a little less expensive. It's only been two months since bottling and too early to tell how long they will protect the wine. So far, they are good.

FINALLY! A company that will sell real corks in quantities less than a million...
Great service too.

Super Quality Natural Wine Corks
Delivery & packaging flawless. Corks look good but not without small flaws that I didn't expect at the super grade level but they're as good as the corks I have used in the past.
