I'm still waiting for the Alcoa "vino-seal" glass stopper to really catch on. The only winery I'm aware of using it in NA is Calara and it quickly became my favorite type of enclosure.
Northwest Totem Cellars uses these, and although I do favor their wines, I have to admit the stopper is part of the reason I buy them. I've got quite a little collection now, as they're great for stoppering leftover wine. Sometimes it's difficult to fit a bottle in the fridge with the cork sticking up.
As for rubber corks, I am always disappointed when I see one.
