The art of winemaking starts with an idea and moves into grape choices, then to viticulture and a variety of steps bringing the wine to it’s final destination, your lips! It is here that an art form takes place, in this case, a cork, if properly trained this technique takes the wine tasting experience to a whole different level!
As you learn more about wine you realize with one glance at a freshly poured glass whether it was stored correctly before tasting the wine. No I am not talking about “Smell a Cork” that we see everyone who is handed a cork proceeds to do, nor am I talking about a cracked cork that shows it was bleeding off product, but a visual that can readily tell you immediately there is a problem.
