The Trouble With Screwcaps!
As a rule we don’t like to make fun of people here a FERMENTATION…unless they deserve it.
So in that spirit, the name attached to this email I was forewarded will be left out. That said, a winery forwarded me an email they got from a customer who has a very important inquiry. The message is short and to the point:
"I would like to ask how you recommend opening the bottles that have a very heavy foil that I had to pull off with the pliers and no cork. They have a plastic bottle cap liner. The corkscrew does not work because the foil is too heavy. Thank you."
I have not received the response the winery sent back to this pour reader who clearly has never seen a screwcap bottle before. Perhaps we ought to take the high road here and note that the wine industry might want to do more education with regard to how drinkers should treat the growing number of screwcap closed bottles that are appearing on the shelves.
