UF25 single piece natural wine corks

WARNING FOR OWNERS OF DOUBLE LEVER HAND CORKER: These corks will not work with your corker because the corker does not compress the cork---these style of corks will split during installation.  You will need chamfered corks.

Our best Single Piece All Natural Wine Cork from MA Silva carries the manufacturer's strength rating UF25, a high grade. Natural wine corks are preferred for long aging wines.  Being made from a single piece of cork means you're getting superior durability and longevity, which translates to more confidence in the shelf life of your wine.

If you are bottling white wine, more delicate red wine, or don't expect to keep your bottles corked for over five years, our Twin Disk Corks or Pearl Micro Agglomerated corks may be a more appropriate choice while maintaining high quality.

If you are uncertain which cork type is the best choice for your wine, please read our discussion on Managing Oxygen Before & After Wine Bottling.  This article includes a vital discussion that will help you identify the best cork for your circumstances.

Best available corks 02/10/2021
By Lance Isakson
I was glad to find these MA Silva corks, and the service from the Beverage People was great. As a hobby winemaker it's difficult to find high-quality corks, and would be willing to pay more for a dark-washed, waxed cork with minimal voids...but these will do! Another suggestion - 2 pails of frozen must makes 30 bottles, so a 30-ct offering would be desirable for folks outside of fresh-grape producing areas.
