  • In the last 50 years, screwcaps have been widely used on wine bottles. The Stelvin closure or Stelvin screwcap was developed in the late fifties by the French manufacturer La Bouchage Mecanique. Stelvin is now the registered trademark of Pea-Pechiney.

    The long skirted Stelvin closure was developed specifically for the wine bottle and was developed 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."
