All good things are 3 – Screw Cap, Diam, Z-Cork
Longcap Stelvin for white wines and frizzante (rotary closure by the French company Alcan, made of special aluminium); Shortcap for grape juice
Cork has been used for centuries to seal wine bottles, and customers and sommeliers still love the noble “plopp” when pulling out. Due to its exceptional, to this day unsurpassed, physical properties, cork remains an absolute must for an excellent wine storage capacity.
Here we work together with 2 cork companies.
Cork is a natural polymer foam based on the substance suberin. The fungi and bacteriums that like to live in them, cause the typical cork taste (2,4,6 trichloranisol = TCA) and mufftones in the wine, and this not only leads to great losses every year, but often also to dangerous, sustainable Damage to the image of the affected winegrowers.
This is why Oeneo has spent years of research developing the world’s only and multi-patented process, namely the KORKREINIGUNG MITTELS CO2 HIGH-PRESSURE EXTRACTION.
This unique DIAMANTVERFAHREN has already been awarded several times internationally and nationally, and the results of international wine research institutes have confirmed the high expectations placed on DIAM.
The main benefits of this innovation will be:
- perfect cleaning by super-critical CO2 and therefore environmentally friendly and clean
- no glue, no plasticizers
- highest-quality binding material
- high elasticity, best tightness
- no more dust risk
- normal processing – it “pops” when opening
- easy uncorking and easy re-closing
- no early ageing – the wines remain fresh, pure-to-tone and perfectly stockable
- no losses due to cork taste
Z-Cork has been showing for more than 30 years that it places the highest standards on the quality and quality of its cork. Joao Pedro the head of the company is aware of the exceptionally important task of his cork, that there is direct contact between the natural product cork and the noble bottle contents, the wine or sparkling wine. Z-Cork is committed to this, this commitment, and every day works hard to accomplish these tasks through a top end product: where top tochnology is combined with traditional and extensive know-how. Once a year Joao Pedro comes to visit me in Göttlesbrunn, and at these meetings we both benefit from the exchange of our experience and we grow in the high demands on our products. Every year we promise to ensure the highest possible quality with a handshake. The corks I get from Z-Cork are sorted by hand, but the cork oaks of Joao Pedro and his father are selected to the best of their knowledge and with many years of experience and trained eye. Cleanliness and perfetionism in production combined with agricultural and craftsmanship knowledge. I am very happy to have found such a great partner company in this important product for the preservation of wine quality.
