I'm not sure this needs to happen unless that owner is a serious scumbag, because this happens with carafe wines all the time. However, I'm sure it has happened already, because lets face it, some of the biggest scumbags I know own restaurants. Not Haddock, of course.

This brings to mind another point: bulk wine sales. In Europe it's very common to buy wine either from a winery or from a negociant in barrels or kegs or foil lined boxes for carafe or unlabeled bottle service, or even in a supermarket (like how you buy OJ at Monterey Market). Wine sold this way isn't Garibaldi California Chianti, but it's not Far Niente, either. Why don't we do that here? Is it illegal for restaurants to do so?

I AM THRILLED THAT MORE AND MORE QUALITY WINE PRODUCERS ARE GOING TO SCREW CAPS. I HAVE HAD WAY TO MANY CORKY WINES. I OWN A RESTAURANT AND IT IS NO DIFFERENT THAN STICKING A CORK BACK IN THE BOTTLE. YOU SHOULD JUST BE AWARE OF THE CRACKING OF THE SEAL.
