While at the symposium, I picked up a few new bottle stoppers to try from Torne Lignum. These are stainless steel (not plated like most others), and should never pit due to the acids in wine. They are very low profile, as well — intending to show off the wood of the stopper rather than the metal. I’ll let you know what I think of them after I turn a few. They look well-made, but do not have the shine of other stoppers. I don’t guess that really matters though, since the stopper is so low profile.
