Not that many clients nowadays......................As for the white,s john is on about,they may have been stored in the wrong place under the wrong cons etc but that does not mean they were corked,they were bad wines.

When you're paying UK restaurant wine prices you can send them back for all sorts of reasons...not just because they are corked. Bad storage,as I said,is indeed the main bugbear,and at prices well over twenty quid a pop,I expect it to be 100% (or as near as damn it) right!

Yes I agree 100% if you are in a restaurant and for what ever reason the wine is faulty send it back, we do but not that often nowadays but back in the UK sure we did.This thread was about corked wines but if anyone would like to start a thread about bad wine and why it is bad please go and start one.

John there are other reasons than being corked,which can make a bad wine,corked wine is down to the cork being "off",sure it bad wine.
