Jefford on Monday: The Total Experience

I haven’t yet dared post a Monday blog about bottle closures. Like ‘natural wine’, the subject rouses such strong, intransigent and forcefully prosecuted views that discussing it sometimes seems pointless. Too bad. Let me suggest that the debate has been overly technical so far.

nexpensive wines, it’s worth stressing, won’t remain in glass bottles forever: sooner or later there will be attractive, lighter alternatives which are cheaper and less energy-intensive to produce, to transport and to recycle. At that point, the debate becomes irrelevant for ‘most wine’.
