If you mean to say that cork was not used as a bottle stopper, then I
believe your information is correct. If you mean that there were no
bottle stoppers, then that is not correct. There were plenty of forms
of bottle stoppers in period that were perfectly adequate. Wine was
aged. It wasn't necessarily considered good for you depending on
where you lived, your economic status, and the time period we're
actually referring to, but it was aged.
