Corks are twisting in the wind at the LCBO??

Rumour on the street is that the LCBO will NOT be stocking bottles of still table wines on the General List after 2010 unless they have a twist or screw top...Corks will be history. And the LCBO has the clout to do it. The matter is allegedly under study, and delicate negotiations are underway.. I am busy seeking a confirmation...Stay tuned...

LCBO not coming uncorked!

The wine world does not take a back seat to hockey when it comes to rumours these days. Contrary to the "street" scuttlebutt, there's no truth to the rumour that the LCBO will no longer be stocking general purchase wines with corks after 2010. The decision to market wines with a cork versus a screw cap or a twist rests with the producer, not the LCBO. The fact is while corks still dominate, a growing number of producers world-wide are opting for non-cork closures. For instance, the vast majority of general purchase-type wines sold in the UK these days have screwcaps and that's influencing producers to offer screwcap wines in other export markets, like Canada. Now, who did I hear is going to be the next general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs?
