The cork traditionally used to cover caves (agglomerated cork cork with two natural cork discs) continues to advance in its line of continuous improvement and quality assurance that place it in a good position among the different alternatives that have appeared in the market The good performance of this cork is ensured thanks to both the demanding quality controls and the studies and projects that are continuously carried out by cork industries and wineries.
