Which is better: Cork or Cap?

Alexandria Castro-Spencer

Whether you've noticed it as you're stocking up on business inventory or walking down your local grocery store, you may have noticed the decrease in corked wines. For some, this is great. You don't have to worry about cork bits finding their way into your drink or scouring for a device to properly remove the cork. But if you're a traditionalist, you probably think these new plastic caps are taking away an important part of wine tradition: the pop upon the opening.

Now, this isn't about taking sides, it's more about which, when you get down to facts, is best for the wine we're drinking: Cork or Cork Alternatives?

WineFolly broke it down for us:

Now, both corks and cork alternatives (caps, twist-offs, etc...) each have their own benefits and faults. But how does this help us? A general rule to keep in mind as you're purchasing is to know 'Cap the whites; Cork the reds.' The reason for this being, white wines can generally be enjoyed while young and do not benefit from the small amount of oxidation corks provide. Red wines benefit from a bit of oxidation. The oxidation makes the wine smooth and more consumable. 

Keep in mind, though, there are different things that can affect the wine you drink. To learn more about it check out WineFolly's other article, or give us a call.
