George Sandeman, Dirk van der Niepoort, David Bruce Guimaraens and Peter Symington are four very well known names in the world of the wine and need no introduction, particularly in the unique and restricted world of Port wine, the most international of the all Portuguese products. They are synonymous with tradition, quality and excellence. And have always been faithful to natural cork, the constant companion of their prize-winning wines. Alfredo Hervías y Mendizábal, the well-known journalist and author of books on wine and gastronomy, asked them about the different types of seals available, cork stoppers and others. Here are their answers.
Anselmo Mendes, Soares Franco, José Neiva Correia, Francisco Ferreira, Susana Esteban and David Baverstock are some of the names in the world of wine that also give us their testimonials concerning the ancestral relation between cork and wine.
APCOR has also interviewed various individuals whose work is related to the world of wine and, indirectly, to the world of cork. One of these was Jorge Monteiro, Chairman of the Port and Douro Wines Institute (IVDP).
