wine in aluminum pop-top cans? why not?
why isn't this a good idea?
once the wine is aged, then "bottled," wouldn't the can:
1. not allow the (inevitable?) air to affect the flavor of the wine any further (does the wine "breathe" *any* through the cork -- even if it is covered with heavy foil?)
2. not let the wine spoil from getting "corked"
3. not allow light to affect the wine
4. be easier and cheaper to store and ship?
also...as a corollary, aren't screw caps better than bottles with corks for similar reasons?
or would the whole "show" of uncorking, and/or decanting and the whole wine "experience" be destroyed by using screwtops or cans, thus making these modern storage techniques emotionally unacceptable as smart alternatives to the ancient methods?
