The annual cork count

Well it’s been a year since the last great cork count. In 2004/05 we managed 392 bottles of wine. This year the bets ranged from 365 to 442. My guess was 400.

Well we were all wrong. The photo below shows how many corks we had.

Now to save you all counting it was 456. This is a remarkable level as several of us missed for a couple of months the normal weekly sessions. There’s around ten of us who contributed to the count. However I’m blamed for around 1/4 of the total, the host for another 1/4 and the rest sharing the remaining half.

95% of the wine drunk would be red wine. To think once upon a time I didn’t like it.
