Founded in 1971 by Enzo Tagliapietra in Breganze, Vicenza (Italy), Labrenta is a well-established manufacturer of high-end tailor-made closures for spirits, wine, oil, vinegar and beer. The company, initially founded as a producer of natural cork for the Italian wine market, has grown over the years under the direction of Gianni and Amerigo to establish itself as an international highly innovative firm and obtaining 30 patents. In 2022, Labrenta is expected to achieve more than €30 million in revenues across its 800 customers in 70 countries and has plants in Italy, Brazil and Mexico as well as a commercial branch in the United States. In 2022, the company acquired Anacorks, a Portuguese firm specialised in the production of luxury cork closures. Thanks to its focus on R&D activities, as well as to its attention to sustainability, Labrenta has launched product lines composed of natural and synthetic materials blends, therefore creating innovative and beautifully designed closures.
