Life (for a cork stopper) after olive oil!

Beautiful Umbria, Italy is home to fabulous olive oils and wines. Olive trees grow throughout the magnificent country side of Umbria. These fine wines and olive oil bottles are stoppered with natural cork. Umbria celebrates these excellent wines and olive oils by displaying their corks both inside the bottle and, once the bottle is finished, outside. 

A large jug of olive oil is sealed with a natural cork stopper.

Olive oil is stoppered with this cork pourer. The bottle is displayed in a holder  made of re-used wine & olive oil corks.  

This entrance to a restaurant in Umbria is made of hanging sparkling wine corks. Note the other containers - all made with re-used corks.

I have plenty of wine corks at home, have some great idea to re-use it. Thanks for sharing.
