Natural cork is the traditional and preferred cork of professional winemakers. These number 4 corks (rated from 0-10) are fairly porous and are not recommended for extensive aging (less than 5 years). Upgrade to a #3 – #0 for more aging. 1 3/4 long.
Italy produces more wine than any country in the world and Molinas is the largest Italian cork supplier with over 1 billion corks produced annually. Molinas Cork was started over 100 years ago by Pietro Molinas on the Italian island of Sardinia. Besides its beautiful beaches and designation as one of the world's five Blue Zones, Sardinia is known for its large, government protected Cork tree forests. Today, the 4th generation of the Molinas family sustainably harvests cork from these protected trees. Throughout the entire process from tree to finished cork, quality control is strictly monitored. MoreFlavor! is proud to represent Molinas Cork in the USA.
