Which is why wine makers should use screw tops instead of corks. Screw 
tops preserve their contents for longer.

Excepted that wine should be allowed to breath, something a screw tops
do not do and that corks do.

Screw tops is for spirit strong beverage. Or beer.

The corks must be kept wet, so the bottle should be stored horizontally
and not vertically.
