  • In the last 50 years, screwcaps have been widely used on wine bottles. The long skirted Stelvin screwcap was developed specifically for the wine bottle from the Stelcap design which was used on wine bottles but not specifically designed for wine bottles. The Stelvin and the Stelcap seals look similar from the outside, but the inner cap lining differs.

    Geoff Linton from Yalumba Wines explains: "It is difficult to separate Stelcaps from Stelvins by externally examining the bottle & closure - they appear the same as the only difference is the wadding - the Stelcap wads, which have a cork layer covered by paper are white in colour while the Stelvin appear silver from a tin layer which is covered by a neutral PVDC which is in contact with the wine."
