There are a lot of reasons why we choose natural cork over synthetic alternatives. Cork has been the sealer of choice since the 17th century and cork harvesting is considered one of the most sustainable and environmentally-friendly industries.
Cork trees have the natural ability to regenerate damaged bark and branches. With an average lifespan of 200 years, a single tree can provide thousands of bottle stoppers. The largest forests in Portugal have been protected since the 13th century making cork one of Portugal’s primary economic sectors. Drink up and enjoy!
