MWWC#6: The Mystery of the Bark Bottle*

The Armchair Sommelier

DSC_0998[Read in Robert Stack’s voice]  For every mystery there is someone, somewhere, who knows the truth. Perhaps . . . that someone is you!

Have you ever seen a wine bottle like this before?  If so, you’re already ahead of me.

A few months ago, a friend of mine sent me this unusual wine bottle.  She thought it was something an Armchair Sommelier would enjoy having in her collection.  And I absolutely do, but I cannot figure out its provenance.  This little bottle is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside a cork tree.

My friend received the bottle as a gift from her mother-in-law, who picked it up on a trip to South America (Peru maybe?).  The bottle is covered in tree bark, with a swath of cork on its neck.  My friend’s MIL told her the bottle was designed to keep wine at a consistent temperature.
