It seems like an old debate, but for some reason it is still happening. I’ve personally seen wineries at tastings have to remove more than a handful of bottles from their table as soon as they’ve been opened because of cork taint. It’s a problem that knows no boundaries of price point or style. But are the alternatives that much better? Which is more environmentally sound and uses less energy? Is there really a need for corks in every bottle of wine that is produced? We talk about this over a bottle of wine (of course) but you’ll have to listen to see what it was sealed with. Cheers!
Does it matter to you how a bottle of wine is sealed? Do you love the romance of hearing the cork pop? Do you love the practicality of the screw top? Leave a comment here or on our facebook page and let me know what you think.
