Screwcap Versus Cork, Is The Debate Already Over?

Luxist has an interesting blog posting from The United Grape & Wine Symposium about whether the nail is finally in the coffin for the cork in wine bottles.

As many of you know wine can become “corked” due to 2,4,6-Trichloroanisole (also known as cork taint). One popular solution is a screw cap but many producers oppose this. Some love the “romance” of the cork pop, some love the corkscrew, some only love it because the EU funds a huge “use cork” campaign to help protect Portuguese cork farmers…

Let’s face it, anything that protects the wine is a move forward and it’s about time the cork is well and truly killed off.
