Looking to the Past for Inspiration and Motivation


This weekend was spent participating in an annual family tradition that dates back long before anyone can remember.  The change of the season is marked by sudden cool snaps, shorter days, and a bountiful fall harvest.  Each fall in early September vine-ripened grapes make their journey from vineyards around the world to small produce markets where amateur and professional wine makers alike oggle at their beauty. 

Having finally participated in this tradition I can't help by recognize how the current economic and political climate has a lot of people looking towards traditions of the past. Many are looking to live a more simplistic life and learning to appreciate the small wonders around us. What could be more modern than that? 

Here are a few fun finds to get you in the mood to go and make your very own Vino della Famiglia.

    I’m definitely keen on those burlap wine bottle bags, they bring about a rustic feel to them. I will say though, one of the most original displays of wine I’ve seen is when there are several bottles stacked up. I know you see that practically everywhere, but it gets me into that ‘vino’ mood. Thanks for sharing these new ideas!
