Wine Corks

Natural and Agglomerate corks for wine
Products > Wine Corks

There are several different types of wine corks available at Subermex. Type selection is dependent on the type of wine being sealed and the expectant length of time before the wine is consumed. Other factors determining cork type selection and treatments include bottling speed, still or sparking wines, sweet or dry wines, red or white wines, bottle size and type. We can recommend the best stoppers for you, including size, qualities, sterilizing, printing or branding, and surface treatments to ensure successful results.

Natural wine corks are made with 100% natural cork. Agglomerated wine corks are made with processed natural cork grains, sterilized and compressed.

Natural Corks

Natural cork is the only sealing material which allows wine to "live" and mature in the bottle over extended time. Natural wine corks are "punched" from specially selected corkwood, carefully inspected for flaws, washed, sterilized, and printed or fire branded. There are seven standard grades of natural wine stoppers, carefully sorted into respective quality grades first by automatic laser sorting machines followed by final manual hand sorting. Our corks are available in a wide variety of both standard and custom sizes, the most common being 45 mm long (1-3/4") x 24 mm diameter and 38 mm long (1-1/2") x 24 mm diameter. The technical specifications are the same for all sizes.

Agglomerate Corks

These wine corks are manufactured from clean natural cork grain. The grain is milled using the "waste" by-product from natural cork production. Agglomerate wine corks are economically priced and easy to use. Maintaining the agglomerate wine stoppers' technical specifications ensures successful sealing and good performance.

Other facts

The cork can aerate the wine, but once the bottle rests horizontally, the wine wets the cork stopper and prevents oxygen from entering. The first thing the wine taster needs to do after opening a bottle, is sniff the cork. If the wine is in good condition, the cork will smell like wine. If it smells like cork, the bottle has not been properly maintained or the cork contains fungi that may have contaminated the wine, giving it a bad taste. For this reason, it is considered good practice to leave the stopper on the table when serving wine.

Agglomerate cork stoppers are not suitable for aging wines, but have enough quality for young wines.
