Poll: What Do You Do With A Corked Wine?

The work week ends, you dig down into your wine collection and pull out a special bottle you’ve been waiting to open. You peel off the foil and breath a sigh of relief when you see that the cork hasn’t been compromised. The first glass is poured, swirled, and …. wait a second. Something isn’t right, this wine smells like cork, cardboard, mold, or a wet basement. Or perhaps it smells fine, but on taking a sip you are overwhelmed with acidity; this thing is tart and undrinkable.

Now what?

What do you do with that wine? I have a feeling that most people do the same thing, dump it and move on. But shouldn’t we do more? If it was an electronic device, wouldn’t you take it back? Maybe most people do take their wines back, but that’s less than convenient if say, the wine was bought while on vacation.

Take the poll, and then let us know how you deal with this situation in the comments section of this post. Inquisitive minds want to know.
