The Wine Curmudgeon loves screw caps. And screw tops. And Stelvin closures. Call it whatever you want -- just don't call it a cork.
I mention this not because screw caps are embattled, because they're not. The closures are accepted today as never before, whether it's a New Zealand sauvignon blanc, a white Burgundy, or even a high-end Napa cabernet sauvignon. And almost every winemaker I interview who doesn't use screw caps wants to, citing their efficiency and reliability.
