Sparkling Wine Corks

Our Sparkling wine corks, produced according to the International Cork Practices Code, are composed by an agglomerate body with one or two natural cork discs. The introduction of new technologies developed by ACIC has added a recognized value to this product. See below for specs, or feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Wine corks should be kept in sealed bags placed in sealed boxes which will provide the best protection from contamination. We recommend that leftover or opened bags be rolled up and taped or zipped tied closed. Boxes of corks should be kept in a cool, dry area, to avoid temperature fluctuations and exposure to light. Corks should be used within a 5 month period from the production date on the box. ACIC offers free re-conditioning of our corks with a few limitations.
