Cork is a fascinating natural product and is one of the most eco-friendly materials that nature can give to us. It is a 100% natural material, 100% reusable and 100% recyclable, extracted from cork oaks without harming the normal development of the species and without damaging the tree. The tree continues to live and grow and producing new cork, after having been harvested.

We transform and provide cork that serves some of the best champagnes and sparkling wines in the world.

  • This is an inexpensive but really interesting tour and highly recommended. I booked this tour without telling the rest of my family and when I told them about it they didn't think they would enjoy it - but they really did - including the teenagers!!! Think any wine bottle cork is like any other - then think again! After this visit we are cork experts and cork connoisseurs. It was the most interesting and educational 90 minutes of our holiday. Thoroughly recommended.

  • This presentation and factory tour were both very interesting and entertaining. Our host Catarina was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and it was probably her friendly and informative manner that made this such an enjoyable event. My wife and son were very dubious about attending, thinking that it would be boring, but both conceded afterwards that they had enjoyed it far more than they had expected.

  • Informative and enjoyable

  • Excellent tour. Very education and interesting. Site could be better marked on roadside signs.

  • It was an informative tour, which I really enjoyed.
