how often do you or someone in you house by a bottle of wine with a cork in it

2= occasionally


did you know that not all wine "corks" are made from real cork
1=yes


did you know the use of artificial cork is having a devestating effect on the cork oak forests that are home to the rare and almost extinit lyberian lynx

2=no

if using real cork is no more expenisive should it be used instead of artifical cork

2=no

companies dont have to label their bottles with the type of cork used do you think they should label their bottles

2=no

would you now look out for wine bottles with real cork oak corks if bottles had the information printed on them

2=no


You do know that the real cork contributes badly towards to the taste of the wine. Would rather have a pastic one, it improves the flavour. Try it.

I always thought that was the other way around? :confused:

Its the plastic corks/seals which prevents the 5-8% of "corked" wines

You can also use real corks and seal them with wax though.

wine is being corked with artifical cork
which means cork forests are being cut down and replaced with other trees that arnt suited to the enviorment are smaller plants that grow in cork forests are dyin cos the new trees are taking all the nutrients
the rabbits that feed on the smaller plants are dying
the rare (only bout 150 in 2002) lyberian lynx lve in the cork forests and feed on the rabbits
cork havesting is one of the most enviromentally friendly forms of havesting and doesnt harm the trees
if the demand for real cork doesnt increase then we could end up with:
lyberian lynx becoming extinct
and a dessert (sp) where the cork forests used to be

i am doing the survey so i can compile to charts to include with my letters when i write to supermarkets and wine companies urging them to use real cork and label their bottles

so thanx for you help
The cork tycoons of the world are the Portugese. I've seen their plantations, I assure you they are stinking rich and are not short of custom.

Is this survey a joke? Or do you have an obsession with corks?

2=no

did you know the use of artificial cork is having a devestating effect on the cork oak forests that are home to the rare and almost extinit lyberian lynx
1=yes
2=no

if using real cork is no more expenisive should it be used instead of artifical cork
1=yes
2=no

would you now look out for wine bottles with real cork oak corks if bottles had the information printed on them
1=yes
2=no The quality of the wine is more important to me. If there were 2 identical bottles of quality wine, one with a real cork and one with a fake cork, then I'd choose the real one

i don't quite understand - why is using artificial corks having a negatrive effect? i would have thought the reverse, i've always thoguht that cork forests were facing extinction.
