A reader tipped me off to the fact that LENNDEVOURS was mentioned is Newsday today.

The topic of the short piece is Paumanok Vineyards’ being the first Long Island winery to employ screwcaps. I let you guys know about this back in August and I’m quoted in Mark Harrington’s piece. A comment that Bill of Loving Long Island left on my original post was also quoted.

I didn’t know that buyers of wine futures can opt to have their wines bottled under cork or screwcap. That’s a pretty interesting thing. I’m curious to hear how many buyers choose the screwcaps.

One question though: is the 1% figure quoted considered accurate in the industry? I’ve always heard at least 5% and up to 10% of wines closed with traditional cork are corked.
