Cork has been used as a closure for thousands of years.

From amphorae to wine and sparkling wine bottles, we have the most renowned examples of authors and brands who have used this noble material.


In the 17th century, Dom Pérignon chose cork stoppers to seal the bottles of his famous champagne, and it is said that the first bottle of Coca-Cola, produced between 1894 and 1899, was sealed with a cork stopper.


Centuries later, innovation and the globalisation of new technologies such as Xpür®, which combat TCA and other sensory deviations, are increasingly precise.


From Dom Pérignon’s France to the vineyards of South Africa, one thing can be known for sure: the cork stopper is going global, with Amorim.
