Which wines in the world were the first to collectively be stoppered with screw caps?
A. Australian rieslings from the Clare Valley
B. New Zealand sauvignon blancs from Marlborough
C. Chilean chardonnays from Santiago
D. Italian pinot grigios from the Veneto
As of the 2000 vintage, virtually every riesling in Australia’s Clare Valley was stoppered with a screw cap (technically known as a Stelvin Cap) instead of a cork. While countless upscale wines around the world are now stoppered with screw caps, these were the first to shrug off tradition and forsake cork.
