Benjamin over at Wine by Benito put out a challenge for bloggers to gather their corks and sort them out. I resisted the urge to sort them into countries.
655 - wine bottle corks
34 - champagne corks
97 - Sparkling
8 - Synthetic corks
This tally doesn't include all the screw caps or the wine we drank in restaurants , on holidays overseas and at friends. Add in another 200 or so for the corks used for making cook boards. I once made a cork board for a friend with corks from the bottles we had shared over 12 months.
This collection represents 5 years of wine drinking and a quick play with the calculator tells me we spend about $100 a week on wine.
