DetailsThe Italian Floor Corker is the Cadillac of corkers. This corker is very similar to the Portuguese corker, but with some upgrades. It is equipped with a brass iris compression fitting instead of plastic. A long handle gives you plenty of leverage and the corks go in effortlessly. This corker is very easy to use, and will last any hobby vintner a lifetime.

4.9 / 5.041 ReviewsBest corker ever madePeople will put off getting it because of it's high price, and I can understand that. But if you make 15 or more batches of wine a year, you will appreciate the ease of use and time savings it gives you. You will get the best seal you've had, with no effort.January 1, 2014Outstanding quality but a bit priceyThe quality of this corker is second to none. I purchased this after having difficulty corking bottles using the Gilda hand compression corker. Corking any type of wine bottle with any type of cork is a breeze. I just wish the price was a little more reasonable but you get what you pay for in this case.March 10, 2013Great CorkerAll the guys in my homebrew club pitched in to buy one of these when we bottled our 30 gallon batch of oud bruin last year. This thing works like a champ.June 13, 2013A CORKER FOR A LIFETIME.This corker will last a lifetime and can be handed down for generations. Easy to use, with no effort. My girlfriend tried it and now she is my "Corker Girl". I need to find some plastic feet for it so it will not scratch the hardwood floor.September 6, 2013can handle anythingIts fast and has the power to put in any cork in any bottle. Some bottles may require a wooden shim to raise them a little, but other than that it handles everything. 25 bottles in less than 5 minutes.September 9, 2013Worth it if you bottle a lotIf you make ten or more kits a year then I suggest you get the floor corker because it will make your life easier and remove an otherwise annoying chore. Its fast and easy and no more sore hands. And you can insert corks that you otherwise couldn't.November 18, 2013I'm so glad to have itI saved up and bought it and I'm so happy I did. Much easier and faster than hand corker. If you make 25 kits a year you will be spending a lot of time corking. This little baby will pay you back.February 8, 2014Buy this corker now!Finally pulled the trigger and bought this floor corker. I've been making for decades now and have always used a two lever corker. What a mistake, I should have bought one of these years ago. No more soaking corks for hours, no more torn corks or pieces of cork in the wine. Do not hesitate to buy this floor corker, it's worth every penny. If you bottle 150 or more bottles of wine per year like I do, you need this machine.February 17, 2014For Beer and WineThis is a great machine, that I use for both corking wine, and also cap beers (attachment needed)March 9, 2014Corks anything and everythingIt handles almost all corks and all bottles. Much easier on the hands than a hand corker. It seats the cork perfectly and is fast, letting me finish up sooner rather than later.March 26, 2014

Browse 7 questions Browse 7 questions and 11 answersWill the Italian Floor Corker work for large (3L and 6L) bottles? If not, what corker will?BEST ANSWER: Yes, this corker will work with 3 liter and larger bottles, as long as it fits between the bottle rest and the compressing jaws - the the largest bottle height would be about 14.75 inchesWill the Italian corker with champagne and Belgian beer bottles/corks?BEST ANSWER: Belgian beer bottles yes. You want the champagne corker for champagne corks and even then it is quite difficult.The lever assembly on mine is extremely stiff/tight, requiring that I step on the stand/leg to pull it up. Is this normal and will it loosen with use?BEST ANSWER: My floor corker works smoothly and very easily. I do not need to place any weight in the stand to use it.Will this work with Nomacorcs?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it would be good for that. In some rare cases, people do see the floor corkers "creasing" the side of synthetic corks, but it's more likely with the red "Portugese" corker than with the Italian one. I have a Portugese Floor Corker and have no issues with it with natural or synthetic corks. -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesI was wondering how I could get the bottle capper attachment. I understand it doesn't come with it but you can purchase it separately. ThanksBEST ANSWER: We do not carry the capper attachment. They are available from other retailers though. Sorry for any inconvenience.We are bottling vodka in 750ml bottles with an 18.5mm opening. We will be using a composite T-Cork with our logo molded into the top the cap portion of the cork is going to be about 32mm . Will this corker work in our application?BEST ANSWER: Steve,
It sounds like you are talking about tasting corks? If thats the case then you don't need to use a corker at all you can just push it in and tap with a rubber mallet if needed.Can you use this for corking Belgian beers without any special attachmentsBEST ANSWER: To cork Belgian bottles you would want the champagne floor corker. This one probably can insert them but not to the correct depth. The champagne floor corker is required to do it correctly. I hope this helps! Cheers! James J.
