History

1930, LUCA TAMPONI
In the 30’s Luca Tamponi implanted a 48-employee factory in Calangianus. This factory, first in its kind, was fully commited to cork grinding, which was marketed even abroad.

1976, SUGHERIFICIO GALLURA LANGHE S.N.C.
In the 70’s Luca’s sons Pietro, Gavino and Giovanni Battista initiated the factory to natural cork stoppers production. The idea of a perfect marriage between the territory where cork was produced, Sardinia (Gallura) and one of the most important, historically devoted italian region as regards winemaking, Piedmont (Langhe), was then born. During the years, the cork factory goes through a process of growth and development, working in close collaboration with enologists coming from the most important italian wine-producing institutions.

2010, GALLURA LANGHE CORKS S.R.L.
Today Gallura Langhe Corks is represented by the third generation of Tamponis.
The corporate evolution involved great improvements as regards manufacturing technologies, business strategies and especially as concerns the organization, now administrated by Luca, commercial area, Mino, production and purchaising area, and Paola, management and administration area.

Sustainability

ENVIROMENT
Corks are produced starting from the bark of cork oak, that cyclically renovate itself and whose extraction is completed without the requirement of tree felling.
Mediterranean cork-oak forests represent the perfect habitat for many rare species and their role is essential for the enviroment: they hinder environmental desertification and global warming, since they have the power to imbibe large quantities of CO2 (over 14 million tons per year).

 

THE CORK
Natural cork stoppers are sustainable, 100% recyclable, biodegradable and they represent one of the products with the least environmental impact among the different kinds of alternative wines stoppers.

 

LESS WASTE, MORE ENERGY
Gallura Langhe Corks got a healthy workplace, no waste, and an alternative source of energy.
During the entire manufacuirng process, raw material is fully used:

  • the best selection is used for corks production
  • process residues are used for technical stoppers production or insulation boards for the construction industry
  • dust producted during cork manufacturing are used as fuels for thermal energy production
