My love of wine really blossomed during a trip to France a few years ago. My favorite wine region from the trip was Beaune/Dijon. Fortunately, the terrain (and terroir) of the Bay Area of Northern California supports equally excellent wine. I keep many of the corks of the wines I have drunk. It's not a collection. I first stored them in a cutlery drawer but they began to take up too much room and so I now store them in a zipped plastic bag kept in a bigger drawer. The corks in the photo are a selection of the corks of a selection of wines I have drunk since moving to the Bay Area. Not all the wines are produced in Northern California.
