Default Synthetic corks

RE the Zorks, I purchased the minimum quantity of that 160 Zork will sell
and they cost AUD 0.44 - quite expensive. I collected them from the
manufacturer. The wine I used them on was made from premium grapes from
the Southern Vales in South Australia ( on the coast south of Adelaide)
and I expect it to be quite long lived. If I purchased a quantity of 1000
zorks I think the price drops to something more reasonable like AUD 0.25
each, still more expensive than cork.

Send an email to Zork and ask them what arrangements they have set up
for USA distributors.

Very interesting. Where they expensive? Does anyone know of an internet
wine site that sells them?
