Stelvin Closure

If you want to be fancy about your screw cap bottle of wine (not to say that you can’t…I’m all in favor of the screw cap) then call it a Stelvin closure.  People ‘in the know’ about wine never say screw cap they say Stelvin closure.

Stelvin closure is like Kleenex in that it is a brand that has become a generic.  Unfortunately, I can not find why it is called Stelvin!  Do you know?
