Wine Cellar Design

If you have found yourself having difficulty in finding a particular bottle of wine in a wine rack, you can now free yourself from such worries.

Some companies offer wine racks in an innovative design with wine bottles stored with labels facing out. The modular steel design offers a set up that is flexible with configurations for easy installation. You may place it in any available space ? from a residential kitchen or wine cellar to a restaurant offering wines or in a wine shop.

If you are on the lookout for a quality wine cellar design, some companies offer free consultation, AutoCAD designs and superior wine cellars made from redwood, cedar, mahogany and oak wood.

You also should know all aspects off wine cellaring. So many wines are put to waste by improper storage. Some languish away past their ideal age, while others are opened before their prime and are undervalued.

Wine has been loved for many centuries. In fact, the best wines have intrinsic values. Of late, wines have been very popular, owing perhaps to health benefits. Many people prefer to have a few bottles of wine at home for entertaining guests and for intimate dinners. Most wines with a cork can be kept in a tilted rack for many months without any ill effects, as long as the cork is kept moist.

Some precautions to consider when storing wine are as follows. The temperature in the wine cellar should be kept constant, and sunlight should not penetrate the wines. That is why wines are normally in dark bottles.

Also, it is good to remember that the best wine age in bottles for many years, even for a decade. Wine experts are aware that the best time to purchase a wine is right after it is bottled. In this case, by the time they are ready for drinking, they are very expensive, if at all available. This is where a wine rack comes in.

A good wine cellar should be able to hold your wines and should also be attractive enough to catch attention. Wine cellars should have refrigerators with adjustable temperature and humidity controls.

No Wine in the Box on the Equinox

September 22nd is the Autumn Equinox and with it comes the cool breezes of fall. So, put away your boxes and your Sauvignon Blancs and get ready for a change in season. Autumn, with its flavorful stews and roasted turkey, has a taste all its own and for you, the wine lover, you get your own flavors too. Here are just a few suggestions for fall food and wine pairing.

Start the season the way that most meals start; with the appetizers. A perfect wine match for appetizers is sparkling wine. Try Castellblanch Cava Brut Zero Reserva, Penedes, Spain , a nice, refreshing sparkler from Spain. Floral aromas and almond flavors combine with waxy texture to get the digestive juices flowing. Castellblanch blends the grapes carefully to harmonize flavor, crispness, and body. The Brut Zero pops out with a refreshing blend of apple, pear, and citrus aromas that carry through from the nose to the finish. The underlying sweetness of the wine cools the effects of hot, spicy, or salty foods. The acidity in the wine makes it a refreshing food and wine pairing for an appetizer table, which tends to include an array of intense flavors.

When you serve turkey, make the harvest celebration complete by serving Castellblanch Monticello Pinot Noir . A nice balance between savory (vegetable and mushroom) and succulent berry fruit make this an interesting and very tasty Pinot Noir. It has a fruity nose, with notes of spicy raspberry and strawberry as well as touches of vanilla and cola. A bit more spice comes through on the palate without disturbing the fruitiness. The wine is full-bodied, but the tannins are light, making it especially suitable at the table.

Prime rib, roast beef or other beef dishes pair perfectly with a big fruity red zinfandel. Watts Old Vine Iris Vineyards Zinfandel will enhance these main courses. Fresh, lively, blackberry aromas and loads of juicy ripe fruit make for a very tasty Zin. The wine offers a great mix of dark fruit aromas with a touch of chocolate, Zinfandel's full-bodied frame, and light tannins. It is the perfect food and wine pairing when beef is on the menu.

Autumn desserts, like pumpkin pie or apple pie, have sweet, spicy, and earthy elements. The perfect pairing for these flavors is Sauternes, a naturally sweet white wine from Bordeaux. Sauternes have the subtle sweetness to stand up to the flavors of fall desserts, and will enhance the sweet, spicy, earthy flavors in the desserts.

So, whatever the course or what is on the menu, there is a perfect wine for you this fall. For this and other food and wine pairings, go to .

A wine gift basket with an assortment of the finest wines is a present that will enliven any occasion. A wine gift basket makes the perfect anniversary present. Wine will allow the anniversary couple to rejoice and relive their years of togetherness. Wine gift baskets are great to celebrate the joy of birthdays and weddings, and they multiply the festivities of the holiday season. A glass of wine completes a Thanksgiving feast and warms up a cold Christmas night. Wine brings out the romance of Valentine?s Day.

One doesn?t have to think twice before selecting a gift for wine-lovers. A gift basket with bottles of vintage Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon; and cheese and crackers and roasted almonds will tantalize the taste-buds of the best connoisseur. There is an enormous variety of wines to choose from. Take your pick, a tangy white wine or a fruity red wine, a full-bodied or a delicate wine, a dry wine or a sweet wine. For every weather and for every occasion there is a perfect wine.

A wine gift basket has, in addition to the bottles of wine, accessories that complete the experience ? suitable glasses and corkscrews. All this topped with farm-fresh fruits is nothing less than getting a sip of heaven. Send a wine gift basket to add a little magic to celebration.

Lemme think. Friday night I came home and drank two glasses of wine. Then I futzed my hair a different style and went to pick up Thai rice & chicken with hot sauce. I had a beer while waiting for the carry-out and flirted with the young, tall blonde hottie who kept a steady bead on me while I ignored him by texting a co-worker. I was sure that we’d had a ‘missed connection’ but alas no such “…hot daddy in hoodie, ordered rice & chicken…” was found on Craigslist. Le sigh. I went to BORD

It was actually a box of twelve but one was broken, probably the reason for the discard, and we accidentally broke one on the sidewalk. I can't believe people throw this shit away, honestly.
