The Other Guys Choose Revolutionary ZORK Wine Closures

(Sonoma, CALIF) – The Other Guys, a thriving and forward-thinking, family-owned wine company in Sonoma, has changed it up a bit by choosing the revolutionary and easy-to-use ZORK wine closure for several of their brands: Leese-Fitch, Hey Mambo, Plungerhead and Moobuzz wines.

While similar to a natural cork in that it is recyclable, the ZORK is distinctive as it does not require a corkscrew and can easily reseal partially-consumed bottles of wine. The ZORK, reminiscent of a wax-dipped wine bottle in appearance, instead provides the ease of peeling and then simply popping out the modern polymer closure, creating the traditional sound of popping a cork.

“Our wines are made with extreme attention to every detail, such as the experience of our customers, whether an individual enjoying our wine at home, or a busy restaurateur,” said Aug Sebastiani, President of The Other Guys, “After using the ZORK with several of our wine brands, rather than cork, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Plus, the ZORK absolutely eliminates the possibility of cork taint, which is a huge bonus for both consumers and the trade.”

Christopher Sawyer, “Sommelier to the Stars,” who is an internationally-renowned sommelier and wine journalist added, “The ZORK has quickly become the hip new show stopper in the wine industry. With an elegant look that resembles a port cork, the ZORK is an ideal closure on bottles designed for wines that are meant to be consumed when the wine is young and fresh. On the service side, in restaurants it is easy to remove without any hassle. The ZORK is a great new alternative to screwcaps and corks. It is elegant and sophisticated—I’m ready for my next pour!”
