The perfect match for early consumption wines

Ideal for fruity wines

Excellent performance and sustainability for high-speed bottling lines.

Based on the technology used in champagne stoppers, comprising a body of agglomerated cork and a disc of natural cork at each end, it is ideal for fruity wines and recommended for wines not intended for long bottle aging.
