From the Publisher"Fascinating...This discussion not only is relevant to today's wine producers and enthusiasts but will continue to stimulate interest until the 'perfect' bottle closure is developed. Highly recommended, especially in wine-producing and -consuming areas."
- — Library Journal (starred review)
"In 'To Cork or Not To Cork,' Mr. Taber does an able job of telling the story of the cork industry's early history, its rise to global monopoly status and the recent search for alternatives. "
— Wall Street Journal
"'To Cork or Not To Cork' reads like a novel. While the book contains some scientific terminology and at times appears to be highly technical, even a non-scientist can understand it, and it's an easy and fascinating read."
— Napa Valley Register
"No matter where you stand on the great debate over corks — love 'em, hate 'em, or still undecided — To Cork or Not to Cork: Tradition, Romance and the Battle for the Wine Bottle by George M. Taber, gives the subject a timely and thorough examination. Taber is a good storyteller and the book reads and flows easily."
— Wine Spectator Online
"Taber is well-qualified to tell the story. He was the Time magazine correspondent on the scene in Paris for the 1976 blind tasting that proved American wines could not only hold their own but beat the best of the French. His 2005 book on the tasting, 'Judgment of Paris,' is the theme for two movies now in preproduction."
