Went to Australia a few years ago and almost all their wine is screw top because they don't produce cork there. Never had a bad one, even the cheaper wines are really good. I had to get over the Boones Farm impression and try them.

that could be but here in the USA I think many of us buy California wines or wines from places like So. America. I am not sure if I have seen more than one or two reds with screw tops. White wines are about 40 or 50% screw tops here I think. Maybe us red wine drinkers need to switch to French wines.

Yes, Australian wines are another one we like; and New Zealand ones, but I still think our favorites are Ca and So American, especially Malbec.

If you see El Libre Malbec, with a screw top - buy it!
