The segment integration policy, by selection of the best forests based on the trees state and the quality of the raw material, then the harvest support will ensure better finished products.
Storage in park
In our 7 hectares cork park, the stabilization of cork in maximized, controlled and specific conditions guarantees hygiene and prophylaxis of the planks during the whole drying stage before the cork exploitation.
Critical point in the transformation process of raw material into cork stoppers, the cork preparation phase consists in a succession of complementary actions intended to ensure a high level of functional and sensorial performances.
Only the control of an entire segment integration enables to guarantee the neutrality of the corks aromatic profile by providing synergetic resources of prevention and treatment of the cork. These measures allow a homogenous and secured production throughout the year.
The hydro-distillation is a natural process of extraction by steam in which the steam is used as a solvent for haloanisoles and other odorous molecules, while respecting the cork functionalities, its compressibility and its elastic return.
analytical and sensorial aromatic profile
Systematically, the rate of releasable chlorianisoles is analysed at a determined frequency in order to guarantee that the 2,4,6 TCA content is below the ceiling pre-made value.
At the same time, an individual sensory control is performed on every batch of cork stoppers and discs made in natural cork, in order to validate the constitution, the homogeneity and the intensity of the aromatic profile.
The VX Process®
The VX Process®, derived from methods of aromatic extraction used in perfumery, permits to complete the aroma removal of the cork and to perfect the cork stoppers aromatic profile.
The different ways of sorting (optical and manual) assure the regularity of the visual categories, token of homogenous and harmonious cork performances during the wine shelf life.
Applied to ensure regularity, protection and wine shelf life, each surface treatment is tailored for each cork, each wine and each customer.
Logistics and delivery
Packaged in secured and traced packs, cork stoppers are delivered to our clients by our selected and audited transporter partners. Corks have a 3-months functionality pre-bottling guarantee.
