Why wine cork is so special
Posted On July 27, 2021
Wine cork, a wine that’s used in a wide variety of recipes, is now available in Australia for the first time.
The new, $10-a-bottle premium wine cask has a capacity of 12, and is available for purchase online, in supermarkets and craft shops.
The $10 price tag has been a hit with craft-minded wine lovers, who have already bought more than 3,000 bottles, and are looking for more.
“The price of the bottle has gone up by about $10, and the quality is fantastic,” said Sami Mokdad, a local cork maker.
“This is an Australian treasure.”
Craft cork has been around for centuries, but its popularity has exploded in the last decade with new flavours and styles, including black, red and red-orange.
But it is expensive to make.
A bottle of cork can cost up to $1,500.
The premium cork wine is made with Australian vineyards, and comes in a number of different flavours including blue, white, green, green-yellow and green-pink.
“You’re going to be tasting it for yourself, and you’re going a little bit nuts,” said Mr Mokdiad.
“But it’s also going to get you talking with your friends about wine and cork.”
While the price is relatively affordable, some cork lovers are still wary about the craft-quality cork.
“It’s not the same as a genuine Australian cork,” said Mervyn Dickson, who runs a small wine shop in Perth’s east.
“People are always going to say ‘you can’t buy it in the shops, it’s just a fake’,” he said.
“The cork in the bottle is actually a real cork so it’s a little more difficult to fake.”
But I think it’s great because you can see the real corks being made, which is a real thing, and I think you’re really going to appreciate the difference in taste.
“What is wine cuckoo’s nest?
A wine cucker’s nest is a wooden structure that has been made from a variety of materials.

“It was just an art piece that we loved.””
We wanted something to stand out and be a little unique,” she said.
“It was just an art piece that we loved.”
In order to get the cuckoos to sit down on, the cork must be as soft as a paper balloon, so it has to be very flexible.
“I wanted to make a very small piece so it could be a gift,” Ms Eames said.
While wine cucking is not exactly a new phenomenon, it is not entirely new to Australia.
Wine cuckows have been seen in Tasmania, New South Wales and Victoria, as well as the US.
In Tasmania, it has been called the “cork cuckoot”, which is an expression that loosely translates to “cuckoo nest”.
In New South.
a cork cucker named Mary Eades created the corks nest for her wedding and honeymoon.
“This is the first one I’ve made, but it’s definitely been around since the 1980s,” Ms Mokdan said.
In Victoria, the Victorian wine cocker has been dubbed “corks nest”, although there have been a few attempts to re-brand it.
“There was a wine cocks nest in Melbourne, so we tried to get it on the map,” Ms Dickson said.
Wine cuckow’s nest: a new style?
The cuckoose nest is also an Australian style.

Ms Mokdad, who has a passion for wine, is one of the cask makers.
“As soon as I get it in my hand, I can’t wait to try it,” he said, before heading to a craft cork shop in Melbourne.
“I think it looks great.”
“There’s nothing like it, there’s nothing quite like it.
I love it.”
Wine Cuckoo is back, but this time with an all-new twist.
