Cheaper? While it is true that many of the wines that have moved to the screwtop enclosure are found on the lesser expensive wines, this has much more to do with public perception than anything else. Although extensive research continues to validate that the screwtop better preserves those wines meant for short-term consumption, the general thinking is that wines especially reds that require extended bottle aging, do better with a traditional cork. Outside of France, many wine producing countries are increasingly transitioning to the screwtop and in fact, Australia and New Zealand have both adopted this approach almost exclusively – reds and whites alike, and in all price categories.
