Not enjoying the move from corks to screwcaps on your wine? Just consider the environment for a moment.
There have been a number of changes in the wine bottling world in the last decade. These days, you'll find wines on the shelves with screwtops instead of corks, laser printed bottles instead of paper labels and bottles without the customary thumb hold at the bottom. If your feathers are ruffled by this, don't take it out on the wineries. Indeed, these are the businesses that are trying to do something positive about the effect their industry has on the environment. Because all these things suck resources to create. And, even if it seems like a cost saving exercise, that's not always the case - sometimes these changes are a lot more expensive to undertake.
