Value, vision and verve

Tales of the Cork is organized into three categories: California’s Central Coast, California’s Central Valley and Burgundy, France. In addition, expansion is planned in the future.

TalesoftheCork seeks to listen to the stories of those who have spent years in the art of crafting wine and food experiences. Often that will require a conversation with those who work behind the scenes to create a culinary experience.

In the months ahead, each category will house behind-the-scenes stories from chefs and viticulturists to sommeliers and wine merchants. Utilizing personal interviews with visionaries of gastronomy and wine making, Tales of the Cork will not only provide insight into the value, vision and verve of those who dream to create food and wine experiences, but will share inspiring stories that yet remain untold.

My dream intertwines with theirs. I long to learn from and be inspired by their struggles and ability to overcome obstacles. My dream is to build relationships and share the stories they are compelled to tell–stories that have shaped them and their community.

Salut!
