bkisel....yes, I have used them for wine a couple of times...never for long term storage though.
I just think the swing tops have a cool factor! YOURS look to be real European...too cool....free...priceless (sorry...it was just laying there!)
Yeah, I keep gaskets on hand, they are cheap. I have 20 fluted clear bottles from way back in the 70s and guy gave me, and they look it too. Very cool. Very thick glass, too.
