Don't forget that a true wino also drinks from a screw cap bottle, no fancy cork puller required!.

Lots of the better wines now actually use a screw top. It is not limited to just us winos any more.

I'm seeing more and more screw tops when I shop for wine. Also saw a documentary about where the majority of the world's cork is grown. Quite unique trees. Was interesting. Didn't really think much about where the cork comes from. There are also man made corks and they work well, but given the choice, I prefer a natural cork in my bottle though.

Did anyone else grow up with a couple of winos wandering the neighborhood? Interesting characters to say the least. As kids, we named them. Bob the Wino and "Port Stickle" also known as Stick Daddy. They were legendary in our neighborhood.

Are all seats taken for the wine tour-the shorter one? If not Duke Armendariz and Beverlee Niskanen would like to go.

We were in Australia & New Zealand earlier this year and pretty much everything coming from those wineries is screw top now.

Hello Everyone,


OK Wine tours is asking for our final numbers...is anyone else interested in participating in the wine tour? - What about Saturday for the Hop-On-Hop-Off?


Thank you Tammy

Just to add that I have done this wine tour the last couple years. Whether or not you are a big wine fan, it still is a whole lot of fun.
