Enartis Vinquiry Partners With Spanish Cork Quality Group


Date: 09/05/12

Enartis Vinquiry is pleased to announce its partnership with the Institut Català del Suro (IC Suro), the Catalan Institute for Cork in Spain. Earlier this year Enartis Vinquiry became the agent for IC Suro in the United States, expanding their cork quality evaluation services to include the pre-shipping control of cork lots coming from Spain, allowing wineries to screen selected cork lots before they are shipped to the US.

This service will appeal primarily to sparkling wine producers, as the vast majority of the corks produced for sparkling wine come from the Catalan region of Spain. However, the testing will also be available for still wine corks coming from the region.

Pre-shipment cork screening includes tests for moisture content, dust content, torsion and extraction force, boiling test, visual grading, haloanisoles, microbiological testing and sensory evaluation. This comprehensive approach to cork quality complements the existing services of Enartis Vinquiry for the evaluation of cork lots.

The IC Suro was founded in 1991 by the Catalan Government and is a public consortium to raise and maintain the quality and image of the cork industry. The IC Suro works closely with Catalan cork manufacturers in the areas of Research & Development, Standardization, Training, Quality Assurance and Industry Promotion.
