According to AFP: A bricklayer in the picturesque South Moravian wine-making region is drawing legions of tourists curious to see the elaborate cork-decorated facade of his house. The bricklayer, Miroslav Svoboda, a passionate drinker of red wine, got the corks from a local vintner -- "a sponsor who wants to remain unknown" -- to give himself a unique present for his 50th birthday after two years of busy work.
