Special Report

The Move To Screw Caps & Alternative Closures. A revolution is in progress: cork stoppers no longer have a monopoly on the closures market for fine wines produced around the world. We answer these questions (among others): Exactly what is behind the move to cork alternatives? What alternatives are most popular? Will corks soon be replaced by other closures? Are screw cap closures suitable for all types of table wines?

Also: How To Introduce Screw-Capped Wines To Your Customers. We discuss several way of breaking the good news about screw caps to your customers.
