Where does the cork used for champagne and wine come from?

The cork used for wine comes from trees. The one used for champagne is actually the same, but it is made of two pieces that are put together, and inserted into the bottle. Its mushroom shape happens after it has been inserted, due to its exposure to liquid. Cork is like a sponge, and will absorb liquids, and therefore expand. This doesn't happen in regular wine because the neck of the bottle is not as wide, but it is still though to open a bottle.
