Wine and Dine

One of my favorite things to do once the weather starts to cool down is drink wine. I know to some people that may sound like a problem (don’t you have anything better to do Jenny?) but there’s something so comforting about sitting down with a glass of red wine, perhaps with a fire nearby, a group of friends, and a delicious meal waiting to be eaten. There’s just something so—and I know that this word is egregiously overused, but I can’t help myself—cozy about this scenario.
Sure, light white wines in the summer are nice, but I love a deep, dark wine to sip in the evening. So how does one buy their favorite alcoholic beverage consciously? One place to start is the fabulous Organic Wine Company where there is a vast array of vinos to choose from. These (above) look particularly promising to me. Let’s celebrate the elixir of the gods with a round of some wine-inspired delights. Now, who’s ready for a glass?
1. Full Length Coat by Lindsey Thornburg from Totokaelo, $1530 - I love the rich burgundy shade of this coat. Not only is it wine-colored, but it would be great to wear out to drink a glass. 2. Reclaimed Wood Wine Rack by Aboriform, $85 - Store your precious bottles on this beautiful rack. 3. Danish Modern Dog Corkscrew from Vintage Modern and More This vintage corkscrew is not just adorable, it’s also a perfectly unique piece to add to your bar cart. 4. Cheese Board from Esque Studio, $300 - Cheese goes with wine like peanut butter goes with jelly. They’re meant for each other.
