Wine Corks - 1 3/4 in. Grade 3

Wine Corks - 1 3/4 in. Grade 3

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

A standard length and diameter single punch cork in a high quality grading at a reasonable price. Corks are typically graded on a scale of 1-10, 1 being the best score, based on the degree of porousness that the actual punch of cork exhibits. Cork trees that show a higher population of worms or fungi tend to yield cork crops which are more porous. The Grade 3 corks show less than average porousness and are on par with the quality of cork used in many commercial facilities. Grade 1 & 2 corks are almost completely solid and sell at very high prices.

These corks are harvested and punched in Portugal, like the majority of the rest of the corks available today. They are processed, sorted, prepped and packaged here in Northern California.

artifical corks don't work for me with slightly different bottle sizes; too much leakage with artificial or partial artificial. Going back to real cork.

What is the diameter of these corks? Are they #8 or #9? I have some tight-necked bottles. Thanks!
Greg Stricker on Jan 19, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Greg. I think they are #9 . I have been using these corks for a few years with no problems. I recycle my wine bottles so I have used them in numerous bottles. I will continue to use them. Jimmy

#3 Grade Corks
These corks appear to be of very good quality and should provide very good protection to our wines.

Very nice corks
These natural corks are of good quality, and provide a tight, safe seal. You do need a floor corker to insert them into your bottles. I have never had a wine bottle leak, even when stored cork-side down.

I prefer them over the synthetic cork closures.
Natural corks are biodegradable, and often, can be repurposed. There are a few retailers near me that have collection boxes for used natural corks, which are then used in the making of other cork-enhanced products.

I appreciate being able to reduce the number of synthetic corks that go into the trash and landfills.

Good corks
These worked well, the only advice I would give is to inspect them before inserting. I was going too fast and got one that leaked because I didn't inspect it to see how many holes were in it and how they aligned. Overall I'm satisfied.

Decent Price for Natural Cork, but I Have Some Misgivings
I've purchased grade 3 natural corks from here since 2015. I've been grateful as a home winemaker to have access to smaller quantities of natural corks, and most of the time they do a good job at a good price.

There are four downsides in my mind:

1) I'd estimate about 3% of my bottles have experienced TCA taint over the years. It hurts every time having to pour one of your handmade bottles down the sink. Yes, this is part of the natural-cork game, but some modern suppliers are getting better than this.

2) They are supposedly all "grade 3," but there is a striking difference in evident porosity in the same bag. Some corks are beautifully perfect and others are so holey I can't use them.

3) Some bags, though admittedly not recently, have had corks that were dry and brittle.

4) I've been amused by the packager's inability to count. My bags have seldom had the exact number of corks I've ordered, usually fewer. One bag of 100 a couple years back had fewer than 90.

I thought that I already reviewed these corks. They're great. I won't use synthetic or agglomerated corks. Also I only need 50-100 corks and don't need 1000. Especially at $500 +. Also I work with hybrid grapes that only keep for 4 -5 .years so grades 1&2 aren't needed.

Seem to be fine. Easily corked. Will see how they do over time in the bottle.
