Novacortiça - Cork Factory Tour

Bilateral Meetings

  • Saturday 14 May 2016 (09:30 am - 10:45 am)
DescriptionNovacortiça devotes its main activity to the manufacture of natural cork discs that go to champagne cork stoppers and 1+1 wine stoppers. We present a high quality product, preferred by the most demanding wineries. In our Cork Factory Tour, for about 1h30, visitors have the opportunity to understand the importance of the Cork Industry in the national context, its various components and the transformation process, from the harvesting to finished products. We start with an introduction to cork in our conference room and end up with a visit to the factory facilities, so visitors can see in first-hand the different stages of the cork manufacturing process. After the factory tour, we propose a stop at the Factory Shop, so that guests can see the different applications of cork granules and cork skin to different products, namely fashion products. We also offer packages, combining different activities/experiences with the visit to the factory, such as wine tasting, visit to the cork trees plantations, regional liqueurs tasting, and others tailor made requests.
