Wood Cap, Synthetic StemSynthetic vs Eco-Hybrid
Synthetic: Synthetic corks are made from a food grade plastic polymer. They tend to be less resilient than a natural cork so generally require a more uniform bottle opening. This modern addition to traditional cork is available in a variety of colors.
Jelinek Eco-Hybrid: Jelinek Eco-Hybrid cork is a combination of synthetic material and real cork. It incorporates the sustainable elements of natural cork, is slightly more flexible and resilient than a fully plastic synthetic stopper, yet maintains other properties of a synthetic.
