Guala Closures Group has created a screwcap closure specifically for sparkling wine.
The Italian company said this week that the closure, known as ‘Moss’, has a “specially developed liner to maintain perfect carbonation levels for up to two bars without losing any of the product’s fresh flavours”.
The closure is already being used by several Argentinian producers in their domestic market, while Brazil’s Salton Winery has adopted the closure for its ‘Lunae’ Frisante range, which will be exported worldwide.
Founded in Italy in 1954 by the Guala family as a production plant to make plastic components, the Guala Closures Group produces around 8bn closures per year, with 20 facilities on four continents. The group branched into screwcaps in 2003, and claims to be the market leader.
