“The market for wine-bottle closures is a $4 billion battlefield where an epic confrontation is now taking place.” – George Taber, from To Cork or Not To Cork: Tradition, Romance, Science, and the Battle for the Wine Bottle
The much-needed discussion about wine closures is upon us and none other than George M. Taber is taking the podium. Former reporter and editor of Time Magazine, Taber is no stranger to wine. His earlier book Judgement in Paris captured the moment when California bested the great wines of Bordeaux, and it quickly became the definitive text on the subject. With his new book, Taber has once again brought clarity to a major controversy in the wine world.
