Just a few years ago, or perhaps mainly in the mid 90s and early 00s, corked wines were a big discussion subject. Some people reported 4-5% cork defects in wine, sometimes even 10%. We started to see serious “alternative closures”, mainly plastic corks and screw caps. Today that debate has mostly disappeared (although not quite disappeared and not in all countries).What has happened? Have we become used to corked wines? Or are there fewer of them around? Have screw-cap taken over the quality wine market?

Read more on corked wines, screw caps and other corky things – and watch the video! – in Per’s article on BKWine Magazine, originally published on Forbes: The CEO of Amorim on corked wines, technical innovation and the world market | Per on Forbes.
