For the Love of Wine

In Northern California, my mom's friend would host parties that we would attend every so often.  


We always enjoyed visiting her lovely home.  It was uniquely designed and really reflected the family living in it.  One of my favorite designs of hers was a spiral, ceiling-mounted wine rack that displayed bottles upside down.  


I had never seen anything like it.  I was so excited when I discovered a similar wine rack when we went wine tasting in Temecula.  




And I was even more excited when my parents bought it for me for my birthday!  


I have just hung it in my kitchen, and I love it.  



Now, I just need to keep it full with wine :-)  


Cheers!

Wine accompanies every dinner here. My hubby is a big fan. Vineyards are always so much fun to visit. We spent many hours exploring small ones in upstate NY. That wine rack is awesome. What a wonderful gift. Now for artistic purposes you must keep it filled. Take care.
