Wine Cabinet?Let Your Guests Decide From Your Selection

Sure, we buy things that we love for our own personal reasons but there is still some part of us that can?t help but want to show off sometimes! While we hate to go overboard and risk making guests feel bad or awkward, there is certainly nothing wrong with wanting to take guests on a little tour of our latest acquisitions. And when it comes to an ornate and lavish wine cabinet, who can pretend that such an exquisite furnishing was only meant to store our bottles?

Of course at the heart of any decision to buy a beautiful wine cabinet is a desire to display it for others to see. While you may not want to feature it out in the living room for any and all to know about?there is certainly nothing wrong with distinguished and honored guests from seeing your elegant cabinet in the dining room or den.

Decorating a dining room with a finely made and lavish wine cabinet is a great idea and cannot help but add some class and sophistication to this space. After serving an elegant meal, go ahead and open up the cabinet and allow your guests to choose a bottle from your selection while you pull glasses and the opener out. This grand and yet humble gesture allows your guests to both see your magnificent piece while also taking a more active part in the evenings? festivities?so everyone wins!

Truly ornate cabinets often feature hand carvings and other marks of expert craftsmanship. Often constructed from hardwoods and finished with lavish veneers such as oak or cherry, a magnificent wine cabinet is the height of sophistication and interior d?cor. Any room and its furnishings are accentuated by the right cabinet and it is quite common for this elegant piece to become the very focal point of the room itself.

If you are ready to take your home d?cor and interior design scheme to the next level, then hop online and start shopping for the perfect cabinet for your d?cor. Online retailers are perhaps one of the few places where you are going to find quality made wine cabinets and the merchant should be able to answer all of your questions about these elegant pieces and how best to accentuate your existing d?cor with the right one. They are made in a wide range of finishes and features so be sure to shop around for settling on one.

Recommended California Wines Items

Chateau D'Yquem - Sauternes - 1er

"Superb, brilliant golden color. The bouquet is already intense and very expressive, to an extent rarely seen in a wine this young. Tremendously pure, complex aromas: yellow fruit, dried fruit, spices, aromatic plants and elegant oak. Starts out beautifully on the palate. The roundness is backed up by great acidity and a vivacious quality. Beautifully smooth and softer after taste. This elegant wine has a remarkebly long finish." From Chateau D'Yquem's website. Received a score of 94 from Wine Spaectator's James Suckling. This dry white wine from France is a great gift to buy online! (Subject to Availability) DYQ99 DYQ99

How Average is California Sauvignon Blanc?

Fri, 05 Sep 2008 17:51:03 PDT
Just how average (or below average) is California Sauvignon Blanc? I was thinking about this today when I opened what turned out to be a really beautiful SB from Dry Creek Valley. Nice grassy component, citrus, pear, slightest hint of melon, zero wood, great backbone. I loved it. Now there was a time when Dry Creek Valley in Northern Sonoma was considered a great place to plant Sauvignon Blanc. But you don't hear that much anymore. In fact, it seems that Lake County is the only place really t

Tualatin Treasure Hunt

Fri, 05 Sep 2008 14:21:29 PDT
There seems to be an accepted treasure map for pinot noir. You follow the clues and the dotted line and, arrive at the "X" and the treasure will be yours, with a little digging. The components of the map are simple and the endpoint is always a small, artisanal producer. However, it seems this map can sometimes blind us to treasures somewhat easier to attain. So it was with only moderate expectations that I opened a bottle of pinot noir from one of Oregon's largest producers. After all, big g

Canadian Wine Country Welcomes Private Residence Club

Fri, 05 Sep 2008 14:07:18 PDT
When you think of Canada, you might not think of wine, but that could be set to change. British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley is fast becoming a highly regarded wine region—the New York Times dubbed it the “Napa Valley of the North”—and home to a burgeoning tourism industry. Now developers are building new fractional residences in the region aimed squarely at wine lovers. At about 250 miles east of Vancouver, the valley’s dry and sunny climate is well suited to a wide range of varietals. More t

Bordeaux is one of the largest wine producing regions in the world and the home of some of the most famous wines in the world including the “Grand Cru” wines. But that’s not the whole story. Many Bordeaux wines are inexpensive, easy to drink, accessible, generally lower in alcohol than typical California wines, and pair well with food. Even if you’re not planning a trip overseas, host a “Bordeaux Night” so you and your friends can taste and discover some new wines to enjoy. 1. Find a bargai
