It was a nice bottle of wine, from Italy and it cost $12.
I opened it as one opens a wine bottle- with a corkscrew. But my corkscrew did not work.
So I peeled off the foil cover to discover that there was no cork.
What passed for a cork was a thick plastic seal.
Not even a plastic cork!
Ok I understand that vintners are proud of their wine but isn't it a little presumptuous to just assume the whole bottle will be gone in one sitting?
It is now Wednesday night. Six nights later and I have just finished the bottle.
I had to cover the top with tinfoil, which is just tacky.
It may also be tacky that it takes me that long to get through a small bottle of wine but I was in Hudson for a couple of those nights and I don't drink wine most nights at all.
So...... cork, please? Is that too much to ask?
It is nice wine but...
