Screw Cap Wines
There’s nothing like the ‘pop’ of a cork when opening a bottle of wine or champagne! However, did you know that corks may “taint” the wine, or allow oxygen to leak into the bottle–leading to oxidation? Note: There are those that argue that a small amount of oxygen helps to “age” the wines properly, thus the continued use of corks over screw caps.
Since 1964, some wine-makers have opted to use screwcaps to seal the bottles, rather than the traditional corks. The lower failure rate of screwcaps makes screw cap wine longer-lasting, and less likely to spoil during production, shipping, and storage.
Screwcaps are also easier to open, and are great for preserving the fresh fruit characters of wines designed to be drunk within a few years of the vintage. If you are looking for quality screwcap wine, check out the wines below. We’ve got the best organic wines from around the world for you to choose from.
