Weekend Musing

O Capitalism, how I adore you. You are always thinking, day and night, of ways to make my life just a little bit easier. Like pull-tabs on the top of cookie packages so that they stay fresh – what a great idea. But O dear, sweet Capitalism – why doesn’t every wine bottle have one of those convenient little pull-tabs in the foil at the top?

  1. It is capitalism; the lack of a pull tab signals exclusivity. If you need a pull tab, you are probably opening it yourself.

    1. Yes, I think you’ve got something there. Vintners might also be trying to convey a sense of timelessness or tradition – this is the way it’s always been made. Some wine customers are buying something other than the wine itself, it seems.
