About Us

M.A.Silva Corks Australasia was established in 2008 in the Hunter Valley Wine region in New South Wales as a collaboration between Mr Manuel Silva, the owner of M.A.Silva Cortiças Lda. and Mario Tavares.

MAS_Ware_ExMario, who is originally from the same area as M.A.Silva Cortiças, Lda in the north of Portugal, has been based in Australia since the early nineties. This background, along with over 15 years industry experience, has given Mario a comprehensive understanding of the wine industry and closures market in Australia and, for anyone who has met Mario, knows that he really does have a passion for cork! 

Our company imports high quality corks for still and sparkling wines from the Northern region of Portugal, and we process all batches in our facility based in the Hunter Valley wine region for distribution throughout Australia.


Backed by our strong international parent company (The M.A.Silva Group) we are growing rapidly to ensure the supply of some of the most neutral corks available in the market.

At M.A.Silva Corks our focus is on customer service and consistent quality supply.

We are equipped to supply the largest and smallest of wineries and remain price competitive without sacrificing standards or quality, to bring the assurance and peace of mind needed for today's winemakers.

We will look forward to your questions and visits to our facility in the Hunter and encourage you to contact us for more information.
