Sommelier Society of America Endorses Cork Wine Closures

Published: 06/07/2011

NEW YORK (PRNewswire) — The Sommelier Society of America recently announced its endorsement of natural cork as the preferred closure for wine.

“As a sommelier I know there is nothing that can replace the pleasure of hearing the iconic ‘pop’ when you extract a natural cork from a bottle of wine,” said Robert Moody, the society’s chairman. “Natural cork plays such a distinctive role in the preservation and presentation of wine. It is an integral part of the romance of wine, and it remains the gold standard for wine closures.”
