“The idea behind the Vino-Lok system is to provide bottlers with a closure that is technically and organoleptically 100 percent neutral, meets food-grade standards, and is attractive to consumers.”

SFGate has a full article on the subject. <link>

“The small glass closure came about in late 2001 and early 2002 when Dr. Karl Matheis, a German physician, noticed a similar stopper on a bottle that needed to stay sterile for medical operations. Why not use it for wine as well?”

The fuss around closures seems to be around ageing. I thought something like 90% of wine was made to drink within six months of bottling. So why the fuss?As for Vino-Lok, it definitely has a nicer aesthetic than a screwcap.
