$30 for a Screwcap?

8/6/2012

Are you willing to pay $30 for a bottle of wine with a screw cap?  I’m Tom Simoneau with today’s wine minute here to say it’s a fact.  The world supply of quality cork is running out.  Wineries are already experimenting with synthetic look a like cork.  It is just a matter of time when cork will be a fond memory.  Did I say “fond”?  How many of us have had a few words with a cork we finally extracted from our favorite bottle of wine?  Is there an alternative?  Yes, the best wine closure is a well-made screw cap.  No problems with tainted cork or leakage.  It’s just a better closure. I’m not saying we need to do away with cork wine stoppers today but, if a screw cap is better than cork, then what’s the problem?  We all have to stop and decide are we willing to pay $30 for a bottle of wine with a screw cap?  I am.  Are You?
