Treasures and Mementos, A Wine Cork by Joan Tavolott
When I retired from teaching 10 years ago my husband and I took a trip to Italy for a month. One of the places we stayed was called Colle Lungo in Castellina in Chianti. It was an agriturismo or working vineyard that rents out apartments. The grounds were beautiful and we had an upstairs apartment that looked over the vineyards. I just loved the place and they had a room with bottles of their wine and olive oil that you could purchase. We had quite a few of them and I saved this cork as a memento.
