Yesterday I visited the new/old Bonny Doon winery in Santa Cruz, California, to taste the weird and sometimes rather wonderful. (More about that later.)  Over lunch in a tasting pod made out of old uprights next to the new café there, proprietor Randall Grahm, an arch proponent of screwcaps, waxes philosophical (what else is new?) about this alternative stopper's lack of progress in the US market. Other comments from assistant winemaker Jillian Phoenix (née Johnson) and Burke Owens, director of communications. Feel free to add comments below.
