A family tradition

Our family has been producing cork stoppers for over a hundred years. The first was my great-grandfather Raimondo who, in the late 1800s, left the chestnut forests of Cervarezza, a mountain village in the Reggio Emilia Apennines, for the oak the forests of Maremma to escape starvation. He would return to the village with cork barks that he would process during the winter and turn into stoppers that would be sold on the plains in the spring with chestnuts and wood.

Cork is the story of our family, of generations who have followed one after the other to keep this tradition alive and, while respecting its ancient roots, we have continually innovated our production processes and introduced new technologies to achieve an ever-better product. We believe that continuous investment in R&D in our laboratories is key to meeting the challenges of tomorrow with increasingly more eco-friendly solutions and higher-performance products.

For our family, respect for this tradition means doing better each day than the day before so that we can continue to help produce one of Made in Italy’s leading products, which is wine.
