I know, I know. You thought screw cap wine was basically just old grape juice that was only chugged by hobos warming themselves over a flaming barrel. Well, after realizing that screw caps actually preserve the wine better and don’t get “corked,” the world’s winemakers realized that maybe it was time to change their practices. Pick these wines up and put down the corkscrew.
