Cork Harvest

Cork harvest in the Alentejo region of Portugal

 

Did you ever wonder where the cork in your bottle of wine came from?

Below you will find a video of the cork harvest at Monte Horizonte in the Alentejo region of Portugal.


 

The Alentejo region is the biggest producer of cork in the world. Cork is nowadays harvested once in 10 years while before it was once in 9 years. The number on the tree indicates the year the last harvest took place. 

So, when in the future you open a bottle of wine, please keep in mind that the cork in your hand could be coming from our property.

February in the Alentejo

 Winter?

Well, I went outside today (1st of February 2010) to shoot some photos because nature is becoming beautiful again in the Alentejo region of Portugal.
 
With a temperature of 19 degrees Celcius, you can hear the bees and see the butterflies. This is just an impression of how things look like on the 1st of February 2010 at Monte Horizonte.
