Windy Point Vineyards
As we have reached the 21st century the wine industry has advanced and created new options for winemakers. Wine bottles can be closed with natural cork, synthetic corks or screw caps. However, the entire situation is very controversial. Winemaker’s retailers and consumers all have their own opinions on closure.
One huge influence on preference is wine become "corked" or tainted (http://www.azom.com/Details.asp?ArticleID=2535) because of natural cork. Many consumers cannot distinguish the difference between tainted wine and wine they not enjoy. Wineries do not want to take a chance of this happening because customers will not return to that winery with the belief that the winery produces bad wine. Yet, the wine world has not found out how wine will age while close with a screw cap. Screw baps have been around for many decades, but use has always been associated with “cheap” or less expensive beverages. Winemakers are now choosing to use them on their wines, but not enough time has elapsed to know the effects on the wine.
Many ideas influence a winemaker’s choice of closure. (http://wine.lovetoknow.com/wiki/Screw_Top_Wine_Bottles) More ideas include environmental factors, ceremony of opening wine, storage and even convenience. The result of wine closure is completely in the winemakers hands.
