I suppose it leaves you more $$ for the pretty labels on the bottles.

Well, to be honest, screw tops first appeared on some pretty cheap and nasty wines. It wasn't the screw top that made the wine bad, but they developed an association. Same thing with box wines, really. The first ones that came out weren't that good. Things have changed, though, and you can get very good wines with screw tops nowadays, just like you can get very good wines in a box.

One could always follow my logic...
Drink a 'wine' from the bottle...
Unless your a heathen who soils their palate with food while drinking fine wine....
Drink grape alcohol from a box... it is after all just a 'table wine'....

Re: Wine

Another thought on screw caps. Wind is blowing and the waves are rockin' - and you need a drink!!!
Unscrew a bottle poor one and recap it - no worry about the cork, or it coming out and spilling :-)

My real issue is spillage from the glass when underway. Where does one set stemware when coming about? Or am I the only person here that needs two hands for the boat?

I took one of the nonspill cup holders created a harness so it hangs off my chest in front, leaving my hands free ;-)

Re: Wine

You folks buy wine in a BOX? and with PLASTIC CORKS? That's like a beer conoisseur drinking Coors Lite.

I guess I'm a wine snob. Fortunately my new boat has plenty of room to store a case of good Bordeaux and another of Barolo. I'm also partial to a good California Pinot Noir or Morviedre.

Re: Wine

Curmudgeon, In the same space you could have twice as much, not too bad, "Dam.. I did not think it tasted that good", how much ?, good wine. Who knows what the french do before sending their seconds over here!

Re: Wine

Actually, me and some of the professional wine snobs have a slight preference for wine in a bag: because no air is added to the bag the last glass is as fresh as the first.

For a related reason, I've come to prefer plastic corks for cellaring: no more 3% (or more) cumulative annual loss to corking! okay, I agree that's only relevant when putting cases by for a few years at a time, which most of us don't, especially not on our boats. I'm slowly, grudgingly, accepting that screw tops have a similar benefit, but it just doesn't seem right to twist open a bottle.

We were given a nice pair of stainless wine glasses some years back; we used them once and never again. We've only lost two glasses so far. We buy the cheaper Riedel party packs of four, which have a nice shipping tube to store them in. I wish they sold those tubes for two glasses.
