It’s difficult to keep up with the product ideas coming from Raelene Rozander’s Creative Corkworks.

 

 

Tired of pulling your favourite necklace from a tangled knot in your jewellery box? Perhaps you need the mirror with a cork surround that you can hang your necklace from and pin your ear studs into. Need to quickly pick your flash drive from the others in that tech-tangle on your desktop? The drive fitted into a hollowed out wine cork is easy to spot.

Raelene’s products can be found in a few wineries and a campground in Summerland BC; the Penticton Wine & Tourism Center; and the Penticton Art Gallery.

New location in Kelowna!

November 13th, 2013

We want to welcome Summerhill Pyramid Winery in Kelowna as our most recent participant in our wine cork recycling program. Previously our northern-most location was the Vinegar Works in Summerland.

Now all you Kelowna wine lovers can return all those corks you’ve been saving much closer to home. And, since you’re already at a great winery, you may want to restock your wine rack!

Summerhill proprietor, Stephen Cipes, started his vineyard with clones he brought from France and personally planted on his hands and knees. The results from his organic farming practices and fine wine making are regularly honoured at international wine competitions — even garnering the gold medal in Champagne France against French Champagnes! Sounds like you owe it to yourself to make a trip to Summerhill Pyramid Winery if you haven’t already been.

Cheers,

We Welcome Orofino Vineyards!

Founders, John and Virginia Weber are no new-comers to ‘walking the talk’. Visit their vineyards and you may spot evidence of their commitment to sustainability such as their rooftop solar PV and solar water-heating panels atop their straw bale winery building. The 21-inch thick walls provide an R-60 insulation rating — 5 times higher than code requirements.

Aside from their commitment to energy efficiency and sustainable practices, they also make some damn fine wines. You owe it to yourself to sample a few. Details are available on their website: orofinovineyards.com

Welcome aboard Put A Cork In It!
