France and Italy switched to screw tops a long time ago, they said Americans think they're being snobby by clinging to cork. ;)

Plus, you avoid bits of cork in your wine.

I just bought 5 bottles of italian wine, all have a cork.
FYI Cork is the bark on a tree, it is harvested and grows back in 9yrs.

IMHO, that is much more eco friendly than a synthetic cork that never decomposes.

Older daughter introduced me to Pink Martini. Saw/heard them live in Grant Park
Woo Hoo.

Younger daughter suggested Pandora and now I have found Pearl Django.

Kids are good for something after all.

Some is not half bad. I have had surprising luck with the boxed stuff from Cost Plus World Market, but I still like it when it comes from the bottle.

We got a thing on Amazon called a Metrokane wine saver. It is a vacuum pump cork for wine bottles. I just replaced ours after 4 years. It cost around $14 plus shipping and works very well on opened unfinished bottles.

Thanks, daghats!

Screw top wine is for trailer trash.

Went to a party yesterday! Good friends, good beer, good bud, good times!

Happy birthday, Jammer!

Well, if you consider a VP with a 6 figure income living in one of the most expensive areas in the city that has 100+ bottles of moderate to higher priced wine in a climate-controlled wine keeper, many of which are screw top, a trailer trash type, then you are absolutely correct.

Here's a link to Binny's piesporter selections:

A good shop if you ever make it up here (you're in FL, right?)

Edog shows his ignorance once again. The finest wines in other countries get a screw top. Including Italy and France.

All the boxed wine I've tried has been kind of crappy, but it's 4 bottles for the price of 2-ish, so it kind of works out in the end.

What a weekend! Friday and Saturday both ended up being super late nights, but lots of fun. I'm taking a vacation day from work tomorrow so I gave extra time to rest. Go Blackhawks!
