A new survey of international wine drinkers has concluded that drinkers still prefer real cork stoppers in their bottles and suggests that the type of closure is still significant in their purchasing decision. In a survey by The Moulton Hall research of wine drinkers in Australia, the UK and The US, commissioned by the Portuguese Cork Association (APCOR), 75% of respondents expressed a preference for natural cork, with just 9% for plastic stoppers. The preference was strongest in the US at 81%, with 73% and 72% respectively for the UK and Australia.
