How wine corks are made
The cork forest sucks up CO2 which is generated in part by the plastic and aluminum refining processes. "Endocrine disrupter" is not a phrase you'll see in relationship to cork. And there’s no such thing as a “cork spill.”

You’d think that having all of those beautiful experiences among the stunning scenery and environment of wine country would make me long to be a winemaker. And you would be wrong. Oh so very, very wrong.

I found that many people blogging or reporting online were satisfied with parroting the status quo. I call that lazy research and lazy reporting.

In addition, the wine itself has direct contact with the plastic bag, which is a permeable, petrochemical-based material. If the wine has any decent acid in it, that immediately should be cause for concern.

Yes, I know that this topic has been covered ad nauseum by every wine blog, website, magazine, book, opinion, study, expert, editorial, blah blah blah. I saw the dead horse. I decided to beat it.
