Double Cork?

Double Cork?

Posted on

Ok, so this was one of the highlights of the day.  Did we just double cork that bottle?  That’s a first!  When you go to cork a bottle and wine starts oozing out the top, one of two things has happened. 1) the Bottler or the QA person wasn’t paying attention and the wine level of the bottle prior to corking was too full, 2) the Corker corked a bottle that had already been corked!


We had all kinds of silly banter about how to treat this bottle like, will it explode on the way home, should we take one of the corks out, how should we store it if we want to keep it like this, and on and on.  Luckily our local cork supplier was in town and readily available to answer our corky questions.  Whew.
