When you choose a cap or closure for your product, you are determining how the wine will be opened and how the top of the primary package will look. Inside screw caps and continuous thread closures there is often a liner.
Looking to use a screw cap instead of a cork? It is crucial that you match the closure to the bottle finish.
Let us help you choose what's best for you!
A Bordeaux bottle (like our W5) has pronounced shoulders at the bottom of the neck. A Burgundy style (like our W6) has a less pronounced shoulder to it. A Hock style, (like our W13 or W82) is usually long and thin, with the neck gradually sloping into the body.

We frequently offer transition glass when we are able to get it from our factories.
When glass manufacturers change their tanks from one color to another, the bottles that are produced between the "true" colors are called transition glass.
