I just had a terrible emergency. I couldn't find my corkscrew.   ha2ha


Well Kelley, if other countries would get with the screwtop wine bottle program (like we have with a gusto downunder) then a lack of cork screw will never bother you again.

That's become fairly common here, Moog. The wine in question was from a local winery and they seem to be sticking with the corks. That was an interesting article. I never knew there was an official name besides just screwtop. The next time I'm faced with a corkscrew topped wine bottle at the liquor store I'll just say, "Excuse me, do you have this in a Stelvin cap?"

There's still wineries down here that use corks but it's getting increasingly infrequent. So much that when I do find a bottle with a cork I really resent the effort to open it.  ;)

We also have these sort of hybrid things here that are like plastic corks. They are the hardest to get open. I think the disdain toward screwtops here, especially among people of a certain age, comes from this:



It was the cause of a lot of idiopathic vomiting in teenagers in the '70's.   ;)

^^^^^^

I think you're right, Moodmodule. I know I recoiled for several years at screw-top wine bottles, but after doing some searching online, and continuing to shop for wine (of course!), I see the stigma is increasing.

I don't think I ever drank Boone's Farm Wine, but I did consume my share of <retch> Meister Brau beer and <double retch> Everclear, which I still see in stores.

Unfortunately we never knew the joys of Boones downunder. Still, with Passion Pop, Summer Wine and Star Wine we never wanted for late teenage emetics.

I meant DEcreasing, of course. I know you know that, but I'm a bit OCD about correcting myself.  :)

That Everclear is potent stuff. It was usually beer or sloe gin fizzes for me. New Year's Eve 1982 kind of cured me of the later, though. LOL
