Sugherificio Molinas was Started over 100 years ago by Pietro Molinas on the Italian island of Sardinia. Sugherificio translates to cork factory in English and this is what Molinas has evolved into over the last century. With over 500,000 square feet under its roof, Molinas is the largest producer of wine cork outside of Portugal. The raw cork bark needs to be carefully selected by skilled artisans, trained in the complex, careful removal of the bark from the Cork tree. Italy produces more wine than any country in the world and Molinas is the largest Italian cork supplier. With such a rich history and high level of quality, MoreBeer! is proud to represent Molinas Corkin the USA.
