  • Lindeman,I understand your feelings.  It's a less often occasion when I pull out the corkscrew.  I also know that stripping the bark off the cork tree kills it.  Maybe we should have wine stoppers made from White Rhino horn or elephant tusk.  (kidding).  I decided that screw tops are not low-class, but instead indicate that making sure a wine is...
