Popping a cork has a certain romantic sense to it. Perhaps that’s why it is used so much. Cork seems to connote quality. Wine and spirit producers even proudly stamp their names on their corks. Buffalo Trace cranks it up a notch with Blanton’s collectible stoppers (Collect them all!). The screw top seems to be something we treat with a snooty, snotty factor (Like, OMG, that’s totally loser!).
