    Sweet wine lovers who visit a hockey site. Gotta love that. I even have a better tip for a Chardonnay which I will reveal in a new thread.

    Along those lines, there are plenty of screw top wines that actually drink well. We're no longer in the age of stereotyping every one as Boone's Farm anymore.

    Love the screw cap.

    Saves me from looking for the stupid bottle opener.
