  • Once winemakers get used to using screwcaps on the bottling line, won’t existing problems disappear?

    Feedback from winemakers suggests that screwcaps make even greater demands on bottling line management than cork closures. They are vulnerable to bottle finish variability, capping faults and bottling line faults, all problems that screwcap proponents acknowledge.

    Such problems have existed on bottling lines for years and apply equally to cork closures. It is unrealistic to hope they will be overcome simply with a change of closure.

    • Cork vs screwcap closures
  • Are synthetic closures also environmentally friendly because they are recyclable?

    Unlike cork, synthetic closures are not natural, renewable or biodegradable, and their production adds to greenhouse emissions.

    The synthetic materials may be recyclable but efforts to establish recycling of synthetic closures have failed because it is uneconomic.

    No closure can match cork as a sustainable form of packaging, a matter of increasing importance to many consumers.
