Cork producers recognised for new tech

Cork producers Amorim and MA Silva were recognised for the strides they have made to combat TCA at the wine technology fair Intervitis Interfrusta Hortitechnica last week.

Both systems allow the companies to inspect individual corks for instances of TCA and, where necessary, reject them; helping to drastically reduce incidences of the fault.

Intervitis hailed both innovations as important and necessary upgrades to existing closures systems.

Both Amorim’s marketing manager Carlos de Jesus and MA Silva’s global sales director, José Remoaldo, told the drinks business they were happy with the recognition and added that sales of cork from both ranges were going well.

Domaine Laroche in Chablis recently announced it would be using Amorim’s NDtech corks for its premier and grand cru wines – having returned to cork from screwcap.

Meanwhile, Remoaldo said that MA Silva now had five machines dedicated to the One by One line and that the company would “grow as the market demands it. We’re still evaluating market demand but we think the potential is very high.”
