Stephen Henschke

Owner of the Henschke Winery, Australia

I love tradition and it is very important to us as a five-generation family winery. However, when tradition lets you down as it has with cork, then it is time to look for better closures.

Testimonials Josep Buján Fernández

The Winery’s Oenologist at Freixeneda, Spain

Vinolok closures help to keep the character of the wine in the bottle and to ensure that each bottle of this premium wine tastes identically.

Franz Josef Loacker

Co-owner of Tenute Loacker, Italy

I strongly believe that Vinolok is an ideal closure for heavy, dense wines. Our Sangiovese 2004 closed with the Vinolok closure shows freshness, fruitiness and nice acidity.

Istvan Szepsy Jr.

Owner of Szent Tamás, Hungary

I have often had bad experiences with natural cork – not always cork taint, but the quality of wines using a natural cork was not good or consistent. With the Vinolok glass closure I have managed to avoid this.

Gérard Bertrand

Owner of Gérard Bertrand, France

We tested various closure types and only Vinolok enabled us to complete the bottle packaging as we anticipated. The design of a closure should respect the appearance of the wine bottle. BOH EM I A N CRYSTA L TOP

Château Padouën is a charming 10-hectare property located in Barsac, 35 km from Bordeaux. The soil is composed of gravel while the subsoil is limestone. This natural drainage system of the soil forces the roots of the vine to sink very deeply.

France

The wineyards are located at the center north of the Hérault, backing onto the Causse of Larzac plateau. The distance from the sea and the closeness to the Causse bring freshness during the summer nights. This benefits the gradual and slow ripening of the grapes. The wine is certified Demeter.
