Every six months or so we box up our saved corks and ship them to friends in New Orleans, Louisiana. Or more precisely, we ship them to their parrots, Maria and Big Guy. They love to gnosh corks. More photos here.
This week's box held the cork from the Snow Farm Vineyards Leon Millot we opened last October. Maria picked it out and made it hers. It's no surprise, since she's spent many happy hours vacationing with her people right here in Vermont. A parrot with exquisite taste.
