OV 03b Iconic and well-known Dry Creek Vineyard of Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, has released their 2013 Old Vine Zinfandel with a new packaging twist – a label harking back to steamship travel in honor of the age of the vines (95-110 years old), and a cork from the future.

According to winery President Kim Stare Wallace, ” The winery laser printed detailed information about the cork directly onto the closure. Data such as the age of the cork forest, the harvest date of the trees and detailed information about the sustainable habitat these incredible forests provide to the Iberian Lynx and Spanish Imperial Hawk are some of the details that appear on the cork.”

Commenting on the project, James Herwatt, CEO, Cork Supply USA, Inc. said, “We are honored to partner with Dry Creek Vineyard and their Old Vine Zinfandel cork program. We support the winery’s efforts to increase consumer awareness of the important role the world’s cork forests play in the ongoing challenge to protect the environment. We salute Kim Stare Wallace and her family and look forward to working with the winery on this important campaign.” Dry Creek Vineyard has a pending patent and copyright application on this innovative new cork concept.
