Located near São Brás de Alportel, this family company traces back its origins within the cork industry to 1935.

Legally registered with the Portuguese Tourism Board, Nocavortiça Cork Factory opens its doors for you to discover the wonders of this industry and share with you the needed expertise, knowledge and also technology to work this humble product - Cork.

Cork is a fascinating natural product and is one of the most eco-friendly materials that nature can give to us. It is a 100% natural material, 100% reusable and 100% recyclable, extracted from cork oaks without harming the normal development of the species and without damaging the tree. The tree continues to live and grow and producing new cork, after having been harvested.

We transform and provide cork that serves some of the best champagnes and sparkling wines in the world. For around 1h30, you will be able to understand the full transformation process of the cork industry, starting with a briefing in a conference room followed by a walk through the factory for you to see in first hand how everything works.

After this tour, you will never look at a cork stopper in the same way.

This is an inexpensive but really interesting tour and highly recommended. I booked this tour without telling the rest of my family and when I told them about it they didn't think they would enjoy it - but they really did - including the teenagers!!! Think any wine bottle cork is like any other - then think again! After this visit we are cork experts and cork connoisseurs. It was the most interesting and educational 90 minutes of our holiday. Thoroughly recommended.

This presentation and factory tour were both very interesting and entertaining. Our host Catarina was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and it was probably her friendly and informative manner that made this such an enjoyable event. My wife and son were very dubious about attending, thinking that it would be boring, but both conceded afterwards that they had enjoyed it far more than they had expected.
