  • "The wine business in the U.S. has spent almost 100 years teaching us that we have to buy wine in a 750 ml bottle with a cork, and you don’t undo that overnight."That's wrong of course - the standard was set at 750ml in the US only in 1979. The Europeans standardized on that to get into the US market, which as you know wasn't all that big at the... Read More

  • I have seen some half decent South American white wine come in a box (tetra-pack), though as DV says you're not going to find quality wine there. Twist off caps are rising in popularity because of the "failure rate" and unpredictability of corks. Most all of the failures in cork come from TCA that they sometimes (in 2-5% of bottles) inflict upon... Read More

  • If you're still hanging onto the idea that wines with screw caps are a sure-fire path to wine perdition, you're about 10 years behind the times.  Yet some countries – buenos días, Spain – refuse to succumb to the screw cap and maintain their cork-only bottling laws.  What to make of the cork-vs.-metal closure debate?  The Wall Street Journal win...

  • Howard, you are now our Ontario wines expert.  Most of the Canadians who pop up here tend to be from BC.  I confess to being a California wine bigot.  So, I am completely unfamiliar with the wines you listed.  It's not clear to me where the Heron Red and the Jackson Triggs are from.  I am on the same page with you on using wines that I deem to b...
