Cork Taint bGone!

Corks made from the real bark of a cork tree are pretty sweet. They look cool, you can collect them all, and they're sustainable! Oh, but the taint. Up to 9% of bottles? WHAT? The steam cleaning they use to get rid of that bacteria must not be working well.

Corks made from non-corky things, such as plastic, claim they're able to stop cork taint, but some recent studies have shown that they're not much better.

A company called Oeneo is saying they have the problem solved. Using their specialized "Diamant:" process they're able to remove all of the molecules and compounds that cause TCA.

They'll even hook you up with a free sampling kit that lets you smell the differences yourself. And if there's anything I know about you, it's that you like to smell things.
