Boomers and the Emergence of the Corkage Economy

  1. Makes sense to me. I'm a boomer, I have a cellar, and I avail myself of corkage whenever possible. I think that after I retire, I will be even more likely to do so. I certainly am tired of paying obscene mark-ups on wine, and to be honest, often find that I can bring better wine than I can find on many lists. Of course, that doesn't mean that I won't buy off a list. I do so often, but only when I can buy something for a reasonable value.
