I've never seen them used for wine, but they are great for beer. Just make sure to sanatize the cap and o-ring, and check the o-ring for cracks that would cause sealing problem.

Also, make sure you keep them in the dark, because the green bottle will not keep the light out and henceforth will skunk your beer.....NASTY!!!

I got a bunch of those, they work great, and what he said above, ditto for me. BTW, if you need those grommets, they can be had at the HBS for nearly 10 bux for a hundred

yes, I use nothing but those (except for when I have a little more beer than grolsch bottles).

I bought a case of brown ones at the HBS the other day, with porcelain tops. I am very pleased with them.
