New! Wine Cork Reading
Wine Cork Readings of seventeenth century France feature 68 original symbolic hand painted vintage wine corks with beautifully colored original ancient symbolism on fragrant old corks. The way it works is this: the client simply chooses between 5-6 corks individually at random from a cask basket filled with 68 corks. The Cork reader then arranges the corks during which a short and amusing reading is given!
A little bit of history on the wine cork game and the person who is widely known to have introduced corks to the wine preserving techniques of the 17th century Portugal, Spain and France, Dom Perignon. Dom Pérignon (1638–1715) was a Benedictine Monk and cellar master at the Abby in Hautvilliers France. He pioneered a number of wine making techniques around 1670 when he also introduced corks in order to keep the wines fresh and sparkling, and used thicker glass in order to strengthen the bottles (which were prone to explode at that time). He was known to have said “come quickly! I am tasting the stars!”)
The corks remained and had been adopted by the local gypsy population for fortune telling purposes, and as a game to play while enjoying their own wines. Stories developed which tell of each monk pulling 5 corks which they had decorated with signs and symbols most popular of the time, it was an amusing way of searching for answers to daily questions on love and family and daily life.
The puzzles of ancient symbolism can sometimes be difficult to read, but the remnants, many of which have survived, have been deciphered and thoughtfully transcribed into a more modern pictorial game to consider playing at your next party or wine tasting event.
How long is each reading?
Each reading takes between 5-15 minutes per guest. She can bring her own table and chairs if needed. She has a 4 hour maximum event time.
