To Screw or NOT to Screw

That is the Question.

What’s all the Hoo Hah about screw caps? Oh sure, Back in "the day" a screw cap wine was conceived as cheap, but NOT anymore!  Some very reputable wine growing regions are almost now entirely CORK FREE, like New Zealand and Australia.

 

Listen, I'm the first to admit that the sexiness or ritual of popping a cork on a bottle of wine may be somewhat diminished with a screw cap, I get it.

 

However, that does not mean that you can’t get a great bottle of wine that has a screw cap or that you shouldn’t drink screw cap wine.  YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULD.

    • The GRACE of Barolo with the POWER of Cabernet

      GRACE and POWER, can you ask for a better match? Never before in the history of the World have two things been more appropriate. Fake News? I don't think so!

Trust me, they've worked out the bugs, they've learned from their mistakes, it's downright almost perfect. ~David~

    • Belgian Abbey Ales

      Brewed by monks in, you guessed it, abbeys, sometimes for profit (Chimay, Rochefort, Westmalle, Orval, Achel), but other times just for the sustainment of the abbey (Westvleteren), these ales are the ‘holiest’ in Belgium. There are four styles commonly brewed from outside consumption: abbey single, dubbel, tripel, and quadrupel. Despite being named for the relative amounts of ...
