Shiraz, Merlot, Zinfandel

I’ve come to realize that my refrigerator is getting a little too small for the bottles of wine I am storing there. When we bought our fridge, it looked like a really huge one, we were sure we would not run out of space. With our growing collection of wine, we really need one of those classy wine racks I have seen on display everywhere, especially in home decorating books. My hubby and I love appreciating wine and we have more than a few bottles of red and white wine from when we visited Napa Valley years ago. I remember I was practically in wine heaven when we were in Wine County, although I was rather disappointed that some of the vineyards charged us by the glass for tasting! Anyway, that’s behind us now, and I have hardly indulged in wine for the past couple of years, mainly due to pregnancy and then breastfeeding. We have been telling ourselves that we would uncork that bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from Robert Mondavi to celebrate a special occasion, but that has not occurred as yet. Coupled with the fact that my aunt, who loves wine too, gives me a bottle of Australian merlot every time she visits. So now, we have a collection.

I would certainly love to display my bottles of wine in a beautiful wine rack like this one:

Besides being an attention-grabber, it sure will serve as an excellent ice-breaker for a conversation. The black wrought iron curves resemble the creepy-crawly grapevines and would look absolutely stunning on my marble table. I can imagine how it would set off each bottle in splendor.


While I am at it, I am also thinking of getting wine glass holders. We currently have an array of wine and liquor glasses at home: glasses for red wine, white wine, whisky, brandy and champagne. Yeah, we have the entire collection. Would be awesome to get a grapevine wine glass holder to match the wine rack.

Or perhaps, in the spirit of Christmas, I might opt for an adorable moose-inspired design instead. Maybe Santa and his reindeer might want to join us for a drink too! Hehe…

Wait, there’s more. I also know that there is a secret WROUGHT IRON GARDEN GATE backdoor that would get me fantastic discounts for these items! Like a sleuth, I searched the site to open this secret door, and finally found it when I went to the main door of the site, scrolled down to where it says: “Our Store now has over 1,300 home & garden items for you to choose from!”, and clicked on the comma in that sentence! Oooh, I simply love the mystery and suspense…bye, I’m off to do some wine-rack shopping!
