In a recent email blast, these "Natural Cork" commercials were flashed in some of the headlines as being controversial. Some individuals in the industry found them sexist and insulting. I wanted to share with wine consumers (who are not in the wine industry) to get their thoughts... well and to bring the controversy to your home computer. The commercials were meant to be funny... and to inspire the daily wine consumer to buy wines bottled with natural cork. I would like to note that if you are purchasing wine at a retail store or a restaurant, you have no idea if the wine is bottled with a natural, technical, or synthetic cork until the bottle is removed of its capsule. And I have been to at least 3 high-end restaurants in the past 2 years that have served us wines (that were on their wine list) bottled with a screw cap. Regardless, please feel free to share opinions in the comments below. I like hearing back from my readers, and would like to encourage open discussion about a topic that I probably take for granted. Enjoy!
