Screw Top Sippers for Spring

What isn’t to love about screw top wines? Maybe it’s the ease of opening the bottle. Or maybe it’s the fact you don’t have to tote around a corkscrew. Whatever the reason, we know one thing; screw tops are simple, practical, and capable of preserving wine. So, toss out your corkscrews and opt for an easy to open bottle of local vino.
