Corticeira Amorim, the world’s largest producer of cork wine closures, has bought a 50% share in Vinolok, the producer of glass and crystal closures.

Amorim, the world’s leading maker of natural cork stoppers, claims to have achieved a major technological breakthrough.

Tobias Brauweiler MS, head sommelier at the London restaurant Hakkasan (Hanway Place), has won the first ever Taster of the Year award.

Two research studies into consumer closure preference in two of the world’s most dynamic wine markets, China and the US show that cork is the preferred wine stopper, according to Amorim the world leader in cork stopper products.

Amorim and O-I, two global leaders in wine packaging, have unveiled a new ‘twist-to-open’ cork stopper and bottle, called Helix.

A leading South African businessman has called for the Rainbow nation’s wine industry to work towards becoming the world’s number one producer.
