Wine Rack GIVEAWAY + a book to help you stock it!
Sadly the close to our blogaversary month is coming to and end…*sigh*You knew it would happen. But not before one last GIVEAWAY! Yes, I hope you’ve been enjoying this (because I can’t keep it up forever tee hee) So to end the month on a high note, I thought you might like this…
So what goes perfectly with pasta you ask? VINO! Yes, wine! & that’s what this giveaway is all about.
I received a complimentary copy of the book ”Wine Secrets – Advice from Winemakers, Sommeliers, and Connoisseurs” by Marnie Old recently to review. I was intrigued. I am a wine drinker but I must admit I don’t know much about wines. I do know what I like, preferably white & not too sweet not too dry! I will drink Reds on occasion & preferably in Italy LOL But then again I drink fizzy water there too (something about when in Rome ; ) My favorite wine is a Tocai Friulano by Borgo San Daniele (yes it’s Italian, I know you’re not surprised) or Prosecco (preferably pink) but when it comes to pairings or picking out bottles in a store I am at a loss…
Now I don’t have to be thanks to the help of this book. Marnie calls on forty of the world’s most renowned wine experts to share their inside tips, techniques, and wisdom from their years of experience. The book covers such topics as:
- White vs. Red: Differences run more than skin deep
- How to taste wines like a pro
- How to guesstimate wine style from packaging clues
- How, when, & why to send back a bottle of wine
- How to preserve open wine (Yes, you can freeze it) **worth the admission price alone ; ) **
- How to use leftover wine in the kitchen **my kinda post**
- and oh so much more…
You know you want a copy of this book & guess what? We’re GIVING ONE copy away! & well because we love you so much, *crowd gasps* we’re ALSO throwing in an oh so snappy Le Rustiq 6 Bottle WINE RACK compliments of the lovely and talented Barbara from Vino Luci! *crowd roars* (note: wine is NOT included ; ) good try though!) so you can use the book to stock your rack *wink wink*
How gaw-geous is that? Come on, it’s pretty fab! In my best announcer voice & hands pointing to item, *ehem* Vintage View has designed this rack while keeping elegant design in mind. This rustic black Vintage View 6 bottle wine rack features scroll work on the top to finish off their most popular size with a touch of grace. This innovative racking system stores bottles with the labels facing out for a dynamic presentation and easy accessibility to the wine you want. Exceptionally flexible, easy to install and surprisingly affordable, stores from as few as 6 bottles to many thousands when used as a system. It also provides the perfect airflow between bottles. Size: 27″H x 8-1/2″W Bottle capacities are maximums when storing standard Bordeaux 750mL bottles. This wine rack is a small unit version of the systems used by Whole Foods for their wine store racking systems.
