Not Your Average Bottle Stoppers

Although it’s pretty rare to find us leaving a bottle of wine unfinished, it does occasionally happen. And in these moments, we find ourselves trying to figure out how that tiny cork got into that even tinier bottle neck in the first place because now that it’s out, it’s sure not going back in.

And so, the wine gods invented wine stoppers. Useless as they do sometimes seem, they possess a real utilitarian purpose as well as, occasionally, an aesthetic purpose. Have you seen this velociraptor bottle stopper? Wine + Dinosaurs = Awesomeness. And if pre-historic creatures aren’t really your speed, there are plenty more to choose from. Check ’em out.

    Alex, you have teased us, now tell us where we can obtain such stoppers! We have a couple of stoppers (picked up on a tour of the wild vineyards of Western Michigan) and they have allowed us to buy larger bottles with less wastage.
