Posted on March 01, 2019

(NAPA, Calif.) – Portocork and Trefinos USA announce strategic partnership allowing Portocork representation of CWINE and COMPAC Technical cork stoppers in North America.

“Since establishing Trefinos USA with a permanent US presence in 2017, we’ve seen tremendous growth and acceptance from the market. We are very excited to be partnering with Portocork’s first class sales team to continue growing our CWINE and COMPAC line of technical corks. Their newly built, state of the art processing facility in Napa will allow us to continue to grow while maintaining our high level of quality and service.” Said Ron Angold, Trefinos Business Development Manager for North America.

“Trefinos has a proven history of innovation and quality when it comes to technical cork closures and their CWINE and COMPAC products are a testament to that. The combination of supercritical CO2 technology, three different permeability levels, and a product which is certified to have a minimum 75% natural cork results in a high-end technical closure that can be tailored to the winemakers needs. This is a great addition to our product portfolio and am looking forward to building on the already established success the Trefinos brand has already experienced in such a short period.” Said Dustin Mowe, President and CEO of Portocork.

Trefinos USA is a worldwide leader in the manufacturing of technical cork stoppers, offering supercritical CO2 for the eradication of TCA below detectable levels and over 150 other nondesirable aromatic compounds. Each cork has an individual guarantee and is offered in 3 different ranges of permeability, ensuring consistency from bottle to bottle.

Since 1982, Portocork has been the leading supplier of natural cork to the American wine, spirits and beer market. With innovation and quality at the forefront of our mission we strive to provide technical solutions to today’s market with reliable, high quality natural cork products coupled with best in class service.
