If you have ever wondered where corks come from, this page on the Wineanorak will show you how they are harvested, washed, cut, sorted and processed. Very fascinating process.

It all starts in the forest. Cork oaks are harvested every nine years, once they reach maturity. It doesn't harm the tree, and the cork bark regrows. Most cork forests are in Portugal and Spain.
