A Guide To Wine Bottle Racks

Wine has been part of my family since I can remember. I first got into small wine racks produced for appreciating and storing wine at my grandmother's.

My grandmother owns a modest vineyard and makes wine every year. One of my big joys I recall was, tasting her freshly made wine while helping with bottling and storing it in the wine bottle racks in her summer kitchen.

It is there that I learned the importance of wine racks if you want to preserve wine the right way.

Year after year, as my knowledge got deeper, I appreciated wine more and more.

Growing up, I developed a real passion for wine; I went to study it to understand its complexity and mystique.

As you can imagine, one of the first things I got when I moved in my own house was some small wine racks to start my very own collection.

Even though I started small, as I was living in an apartment, and therefore couldn't maintain a wine cellar, it was a start.

Day after day my collection keeps growing as does my knowledge and appreciation for all things wine.

Wine bottle racks not only give a tone of sophistication in my house now; they add to its warmth and to my personality.

My current wine bottle racks are made of wood and hold about 50 bottles, but, the way it is created, I can add to it by simply placing another layer on top....these are stackable wooden wine racks that allow your collection to grow over time.

Recently I traveled to Spain, France and Italy. The wine countries of the world. I have added a significant amount to my small wine racks to my collection and enjoyed every moment of it.

In France, every house has wine bottle racks; it is simply a tradition with them.

Each evening after diner one retires with a glass of wine and a few slices of cheese in front of the television or with a book. There, everyone collects wine in one form or another -- small wine racks or large wine bottle racks; every house prides itself with one. Of course, many houses have the cellars; maybe one day I will have a wine cellar too.

However, for now I am happy with my growing wine collection.

Enjoy a glass of wine everyday. And always remember to store it right, in wine bottle racks.

Review: Tegan and Sara share a lot in intimate Reno show (Reno Gazette-Journal)

Mon, 21 Apr 2008 07:46:37 PDT
The last show I saw in the Grand Sierra Theater before Friday's Tegan and Sara show was the raucous gypsy party band Gogol Bordello. The two could not have been more different, so a comparison is terribly unfair, but I can't help it. After much internal debate, however, I've determined that, mellow as it was, Tegan and Sara's show will be a memory that will stand far head and shoulders above any ...
