"The cork is under assault. Wineries are using plastic stoppers, and (yes, itís true) screw-top caps on top-notch vino. The plastic lobby says corkís no good, that it taints the wine. The cork lobby says itís being slandered, that conscientious consumers will choose cork because itís also environmentally-correct. No oneís quite ready to embrace the screw-top, but itís coming. Is this really a conversation about whatís best for the wine lover, or whatís best for business?"
