Why did the wine bung apply for the job? Because it wanted to fill the “hole” position perfectly! 🍷😄
IT'S A BREATHING BUNG
A breathable wine bung allows a controlled flow of oxygen, which can enhance wine aging by improving flavors. It reduces the risk of spoilage and offers consistent aging. It’s also more secure and eco-friendly.
IT'S A SOLID BUNG
Silicon wine barrel bungs are specialized stoppers used in winemaking to seal the openings of wine barrels. These bungs are typically made from food-grade silicone, which is a durable and inert material that does not affect the wine’s flavor or quality. The flexibility of silicone allows for a secure, airtight seal, preventing oxygen from entering the barrel and spoiling the wine. This innovation in barrel closure technology has become popular among winemakers for its reliability and ease of use in maintaining the integrity of aging wine.
