There are three parts to the Zork, the plastic
stopper (or plunger as the Zork folks put it) that fits inside the
bottle, an inner metal foil that keeps oxygen out of the wine, and
an outer plastic cap that fits around the neck of the bottle. To
open a bottle, you peel a plastic tab at the base of the closure.
It unwinds until you get to the top of the bottle. Then, you simply
pull the cap/stopper with a twist and you hear a nice pop as the
bottle is opened.

12/30/2010 -- For first time brewers who aren't sure how serious they are going to get, would the Zorks work to cork and bottle wine, or would I need to buy a corker and corks? Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, the Zorks would work well enough to get you started. They are pretty handy, actually. I use a rubber mallet to "install" them.

1/24/2007 -- I use regular no. 9 corks and a floor corker. I let leave my bottles upright for 3 days after bottled, according to directions, then i put them in a wine rack, but i noticed i had a couple of bottles that leaked a drop or two, do i need to use better corks? will my wine go bad from air leak?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I don't see where you have bought either corks or a corker from us. Have no idea what you are using, what directions you are referring to or how severe the problem might be as a result.
10/6/2004 -- My bottles measure at the top 3/4" inside diameter. I ordered #9 corks from you and they do Not fit. Can you please tell me what size I should have ordered. My wine is ready to be bottled and I need to order the correct size immediately.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Are you using a corker? A #9 cork should work just fine, but it is necessary to use a corker to insert them. Finger pressure won't do it.
10/12/2003 -- WIll the mini-floor corker work with dry corks or do the corks have to be boiled/soaked? Also, What size and type of corks do you recomend with it and how does it differ from your adjustable double lever corker?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it works beautifully with dry corks. We do NOT recommend boiling corks in any case. We recommend our standard, #9 corks with this corker.The double lever corker pushes the cork down a barrel that compresses it as it on it's way down. The floor corker has a diaphram that compresses the cork first, and THEN pushes into the neck. Both work well, but the floor corker takes less effort, and is recommended when doing more that about 60 corks in a session.
