Of a Romantic Nature

A couple of weeks ago, we were at a wine tasting led by Sandra Oldfield, winemaker at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards. As it often does, the subject of cork versus Stelvin (dare we actually be so crass as to refer to it as a screw cap?) was raised – and as it usually does, heated debate ensued. Finally one participant – a male – asked the burning question: But what about the romance of popping a cork? Sandra looked the man square in the eye, then slowly made eye contact with the rest of the women in the room. Here’s her reply:

I’ve always believed that if you need a cork for romance, you’re sitting at the table with the wrong man. 

Every women present applauded.
