DetailsZorks are a brand new simple, reliable, leak-free way to"cork" your wine. They do not require a corker - you can seal the bottles by hand! You may want to use a rubber mallet to tap the closure into the bottle once started. To open the bottle, tear off the spiral strip and remove the tasting cork closure. No corkscrew required. No cork taint or broken corks! Preserves your wine for 4-5 years. Serves as a tasting cork once the seal is removed.
Note: Zorks will not work with screw cap or Champagne wine bottles.

5.0 / 5.013 ReviewsBetter than corksAs long as you use the right bottle, these are better than corks. You can store them standing upright. They are easier to put on (hint - run them under hot water) , and seal well. Just follow the directions.March 30, 2013The modern corkI hand pressed 30 zorks in less than half an hour. The method is to use teh heel of your hand, you can wear a garden glove also. The thing to keep a eye out for is make sure you have the right bottles. Zorks wont fit every mottle and even a tiny crack will ruin the wine. These zorks are the modern corks, and corks are now obsolete.September 28, 2013Zorks rule with the correct bottlesEasy to put on, dont leak. Unless you use the wrong bottles. I try and use zorks instead of corks whenever I can.December 7, 2013Zorks ruleThese are great. They seal well, don't disintegrate, and can be reused._x000D_They look interesting too, like a weird fancy cork. The only thing to check is that you are using the proper bottle, as they don't fit all types.February 14, 2014Good productI've used Zorks on several batches and have not had any problems._x000D_Hammer them in with a rubber mallet to spare your hand and make sure they are sanitized and wet when you insert them.March 6, 2014ZorksI bought a 30 pac of these (Gold) for my clear wine bottles and bottled about 15 bottles. I used a plastic hammer to set them and leaned to hear the thud when they were fully home. I then later tested them to see if any raised. They did not._x000D_I like these a lot for occasional wine making. Plus you can reseal the opened bottle if needed. They cost more than even good corks, but no wrap of any kind is needed. Try them for limited volume you wont be sorryOctober 3, 2014Best closure for the home winemakerI hand pressed 90 of these zorks in an hour for my latest Blanc du Bois batch. The first few were awkward but I quickly became quite proficient. I wore a thin tight glove and used the heel of my hand near the wrist. Don't be bashful, just muscle them in. You MUST use the correct bottles - download the specs from the Zork website to be sure. Even 1/16th of an inch off will not seat properly. I leak checked each bottle under water and all passed. I heated and cooled a couple for several cycles and they still do not leak. I am impressed and quite pleased.August 6, 2011Holy Zork!!I really like using these for liquor's..lemoncello and the like. But they do leak (at least when using Zork recommended ice wine bottle, ). I tried using a mallot and broke a bottle. You can wrestle with these and show everyone your red palm (like I initially did), or let them sit under your kitchen faucet for 30 seconds with HOT water running over them. They slide on much easier. No red palm or soar aching arms. Even my wife was able to Zork a few bottles with ease. These make a very attractive finish to your home brew!! 4 stars instead of 5 on quality since they will leak if Zorked bottle is left on its side (left mess is freezer and in car when transported).March 19, 2012Excellent closureWhat more can I say? You push them on with the heel of your hand or tap them down with a plastic mallet. No other seal is needed. Zork says they give them 5 years minimum life span. You have to have the correct bottles, which is easy if you buy bottles for the task. I use the amber hock bottles available here. No need to rest them on their side like corks... you can box them right back in the box the bottles came in and leave them upright with no concerns. Opening a bottle couldn't be easier... no cork screw is needed, and the zork makes a perfectly good closure to save a partial bottle in the fridge. I have nothing bad to say!!March 28, 2012
