DetailsWe carry a large selection of wine bottle corks, screw caps, stoppers, and closures so you can seal your wine bottles any way you choose. Which cork should you use? While the answer can seem complicated, it comes down to this simple question: How long you want to age your wine? For short term wine aging (3-6 months) a #7 cork will work well. For medium term wine aging (up to 9 months) a #8 cork will do the trick. If you are trying to build a large and diverse wine cellar, we suggest using #9 corks. This will allow for long term aging (9 months or more). Please note that using a #9 cork will require the use of a compression corker. We recommend making an investment in one of our floor corker options. While they are a little more expensive, they pay huge dividends in time saved and ease of use on bottling day.

I've been using them for yearsJanuary 23, 2016Great valueNever have let wine lay for more than 6 months on purpose,but every bottle was perfect corks stay sealed well, we are now making more wine batches so we can age some for longer periods.October 22, 2013Great Priced CorksThese are excellent corks and the price is great.September 28, 2013Outstanding valueThese corks are the best value period! I use them with an Italian Floor Corker and they insert with ease. When uncorking a bottle of wine the fit is so tight that sometimes the corks are difficult to extract. Due to that I know these are sealing well and working as intended. Great product, great value!March 16, 2013

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 8 answersOther than diameter, what is the difference between #8 & #9 corks? Which would be better for sealing?BEST ANSWER: The diameter is the difference. Due to the slightly larger diameter, the #9 seals better and for longer. Inserting it is best done with a good floor corker because it's significantly more difficult to insert.How many corks are there in this purchase?BEST ANSWER: We generally sell these in 3 different quantities. 30 count, 100 count and 1000 count. You can choose which quantity you would like to in the "drop-down" menu in the middle of the page.
