Capsules and Customs

Phood | Mar 6, 2008 05:33 PM

My Fellow Hounds,
This is a particularly appropriate forum in which to pose questions regarding lore and legend or truth and tradition. To this palette of experienced individuals I pose a simple question; why is the foil capsule on a wine bottle cut when the bottle is poured? Why would it not merely be entirely removed? Might complete removal appear boorish or uncultured?
Thank you,
