We 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.

The only problem was the shipping cast more than the product, that is not good.
I ordered this length (1-1/2") #9 corks by mistake. I wanted 1-3/4". But I needed to get bottling to free up my carboys for new batches of wine, so I went ahead and used the 1-1/2". I soaked in water for 20 minutes first. (And "plunged" all the corks with my hand several times to keep them wet). The corks installed very easily using a double lever type corker. Easily may not be a good word... I didn't have any problems corking. The corks went in firmly and seem to have sealed very well. I'll know in a few years if I should have gotten the 1-3/4" length instead!
