Corks vs. Screwcaps

Episode Notes

A note from Stephanie...

 

I still see scrunched-up faces on nearby diners when the bottle of wine they ordered arrives at the table and they notice that <eek > it's a screw cap!

 

When screw caps were first used to seal wine in bottles, it is true that they were used for lower-cost wines to help keep the price point as low as possible to attract a budget-conscious consumer.

 

Now that winemakers know that a screw cap can regulate oxygen flow a little more consistently, they are opting for screw caps more often every season.
