Acceptance of alternative wine closures increases

Wed 15 Dec 2004

According to a survey by Wine Intelligence, consumer attitudes to buying wine with synthetic closures has become more positive. 17% of consumers now 'like buying wines with screwcap' compared to 7% of respondents in last year's survey and the number of consumers who dislike the closure has halved to 36%. However, cork still remains the favourite closure with the majority of consumers (55%) and there remains a hard core of around one third of consumers who do not like screwcaps on their wine.
