A Corkscrew Museum in California Wine Country

Many people travel to Napa for the taste of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. But if you get a chance, check out Brother Timothy's Corkscrew Museum (of the famous Christian Brothers Winery). Over 200 fine pieces are displayed in sparkling fashion in glass cases at the Culinary Institute of America, and they're not your standard variety either. Think cute sterling silver monkeys with curlicue tails, roosters, and gold elephant corkscrews. There are tusked creatures and wooden figures with corkscrews cleverly concealed underneath their hats. Uncorking that fine bottle of Taittinger will rarely seem like a dull task once you've seen these.
