The trunk of a cork oak is seen after having its cork bark harvested in Girona Pyrenees mountain near the village of Macanet of Cabrenys August 23, 2012. Sales of Spanish cork plummeted between 2008 and 2010 as plastic wine stoppers or metal screw tops made headway globally alongside declining wine consumption. But now the traditional cork business has recovered, rescued by unlikely saviours: cutting-edge laboratory researchers in white coats who are demonstrating why nature's stopper may still be one of the best ways of preserving and serving bottled wine.

A worker corks bottles of olive oil at the Ifri olive oil factory in the eastern village of Ighzar, near Bejaia, about 250 km (155 miles) from Algiers February 6, 2010. Farmers said the dip in this year's olive oil production was due to unusual weather patterns during the flowering season that had reduced the oil content in the olives. It was also attributed to some olive growers not respecting cultural techniques in the cultivation of olive oil, which led to damage in the new growth during the harvest season.

Stored bottles lay in a wine cellar during season of grape harvest in La Rioja 
Thousands of stored bottles lay at Castillo de Mendoza wine cellar in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, northern Spain, October 12, 2005. In the geographical border between the craggy northern and the flat central Spain, straddling the river Ebro, Rioja region enjoys a mild and temperate climate and its wines are considered the best of the peninsula. Last year around 120 million kilos (264 million pounds) were collected in La Rioja, this means 40 % of the total wine of Spain which is produced in around 1400 wineries registered at the Rioja Designation of Origin Organisation.
