DetailsBlack Plastic Top Tasting Corks are used in place of the regular cork once the bottle has been opened to help preserve the wine for a few days. Once a wine has been opened oxygen will quickly start to oxidize the wine, and a tasting cork will not stop this process, but it will help slow it down. This gives you more time to finish the bottle of wine.
Note: We do not recommend using black plastic tasting corks in place of standard corks for storing wine.

4.8 / 5.06 Reviewsblack plastic tasting corkWe use these with bellissima bottles for our raspberry wine vinegar. They are easier to use than a regular cork and don't require any extra equipment.November 27, 2016Purchased
8 months agoWe love these substiute corksWe've always used these corks when a bottle of wine is opened and not finished. They work well and we love them. We are always giving them to friends, especially with a bottle of wine.January 6, 2017Purchased
6 months agoGreat to have on handThese are cheap and are great to have around the kitchen/brewery. It's nice when you are drinking wine and can't finish a bottle. It seals pretty well and is easy to pull out for the next time. They don't have the oxygen purging function that some of the better pumps have, but it's great for keeping in a wine tote if you are out at a BYOB restaurant and can't finish a bottle._x000D__x000D_Also, they are cheap, so I don't worry about losing or misplacing them._x000D__x000D_Lastly, they also fit in the necks of most bourbon and scotch bottles so if you have one with a natural cork that crumbled or a seal that broke, this is a great replacement.April 17, 2013Great Product and so cheapMy friends and I often have different tastes in wine and beer so we end up have several bottles open on the table with dinner. These little caps makes it really easy to recap open bottles without trying to squeeze the original corks back in. They fit snugly but not too tightly as to make it difficult to remove._x000D__x000D_Because they are so cheap, I'll through one out after a couple uses if I feel like they are imparting flavor or maybe getting stained from the red wineJuly 10, 2013Great for keeping an open bottle fresh for a couple hours or days longerIf I'm having a multicourse dinner or friends who can't agree on which wines to pair with foods, this cork is a great way to keep bottles fresh for later. Unlike the original cork, these fit a little bit looser but still provide a good seal and have a ridged end to facilitate removal. I had been using the cap from a bottle of whiskey to cap bottles, but this is much nicer._x000D__x000D_Since they are natural cork, they will get stained by red wine. Soaking in dilute bleach will help get the color out, but these tasting corks are so cheap, I just through them out after a couple uses.July 10, 2013
