Nomacorc and U C Davis Collaborate on International Cork Research

Post-bottling research in California, France and Australia

Nomacorc, producer of synthetic wine closures, announced Dec. 4, 2007 that it has initiated a comprehensive, multi-year project with the UC Davis Department of Viticulture and Enology, along with INRA Montpellier, France, and the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI). The study will focus on how oxygen transfer through closures influences the evolution of wine after bottling.

UC Davis Enology professor Dr. Andrew Waterhouse, an expert on oxidation chemistry, will supervise the U.S. study.
