Corkologie Review and Giveaway


Cork has been used ever since it was discovered by the Greeks and the Romans more than 1,000 years ago. It comes from a unique oak tree growing naturally throughout the Mediterranean region--and has properties that man still can't reproduce.

When it comes to cork, most people think wine stoppers and memo boards. But thousands more uses exist.

The valve seals on most musical instruments are made of cork. Without it, the clarinet wouldn't hum, and the sax wouldn't wail. The center of all major league baseballs is made of cork. If you like watching that ball sail out of the park, it wouldn't be happening with cork.

The best part about cork?

It's Sustainable.

Cork trees are harvested every nine years by carefully peeling the outer bark from the tree. The bark regenerates to produce hundreds of pounds of cork throughout the tree’s 150-year lifecycle.

It's Plentiful.

There’s enough cork in Portugal alone to meet global demand for centuries to come. Countries in the Mediterranean, Asia and North Africa are also cultivating cork.

It's Recyclable & Biodegradable.

Cork products are 100% recyclable and completely biodegradable, so it reduces waste in landfills.

It's Supportive.

Cork forests support entire ecosystems around the globe that are home to many endangered species and offer jobs for local workers. In Portugal alone, cork forests provide employment to more than 100,000 people.

Lets’ face it Cork is Cool, that’s why we created the Corkologie Line…

We’ve taken the great eco-properties that cork inherently offers and applied elegant and clean design principles to create the Corkologie line. Consumers who are looking for affordable “green” accessories for their homes will love our products. Just because it is green does not mean it has to be expensive. Our philosophy is that more people can be green if it is cost effective.



Corkologie sent me some super adorable Wine Charms to review. Our wine charms come 6 to a set and include a cotton muslin drawstring pouch for storage that can also be hung around a wine bottle neck for display at your next party or get-together. Charms read: Sprout, Squeeze, Screw, Swirl, Sip, and Savor.

These charms are absolutely adorable! They're perfect as a housewarming or hostess gift. Everyone knows how confusing it can be when you have multiple house guests and multiple wine glasses. Order some Corkologie Wine Charms to keep the confusion at bay!
