If you enjoy wine, watch this video to learn more about using screw caps for wine bottles. Here, Charlie and Molly Meeker talk about using screw caps for their wine bottles.

According to Charlie Meeker, a bottle that has cork taint can come in the way of enjoying a good glass of wine. They have started using screw caps for their wine bottles since the traditional corks may ruin the aroma and flavor of the wine.

Cork can develop a fungal infestation. When this comes in contact with the wine, the aroma of the wine is lost. For a wine enthusiast, the aroma of the wine plays a huge role and so the Meekers introduced the concept of screw cap wine bottles.

An advantage of using these screw cap wine bottles is that they have space for some amount of oxygen to pass through the bottle for appropriate ageing, same as corks! The Meekers talk about the romance of popping the cork of a wine bottle which is one of the main reasons why screw cap wine bottles are not that popular. They encourage wine connoisseurs to try wine bottles with screw caps for a different wine experience.
