????? hey Ricky, thank you so much my friend, they are great, specially the 2nd one. I know they only use the cork when it is a certain thikness, and then they wait again for 9years before peeling them again. But off course, once peeled, there still is a lot of work and processes, before there are tiles or cork tops. Did you know that the cork tops for only the very best wines are hand made, i mean not fully automatic as all the other stops, but one by one, after they have looked at the piece of cork first and then decide if the quality is good enough for that type of wine.
thanks so much for taking the pictures and posting these !!

Jarvo Great shots, I love those trees. Number two I think is especially good, the wood has a sort of rocky texture. :¬)
