photo credit Laura went out questing this past weekend, but Clyde and I ended up staying close to home in our wine cellar. Which is definitely not what you see pictured above!
Here's what our wine cellar generally looks like:
While it's really a great space for how we use it, I'm often found drooling over the wine cellars of collectors. They are so clean, yet there is no sanitizer to be seen. The concrete floors are usually stained decoratively. And the oh, the wine bottles always look so dust-free! So in the spirit of a mental quest, I hunted around the internet to see what wine storage rooms were out there.
Ooolala, there were so many!
The cellar at the top of this post would be the perfect end-of-the-day-just-leave-me-alone-with-my-wine-and-a-book cellar. I love that lone chair tucked at the end of the bottle racks.
Of course, I only drink wine alone or with other people. So here's another yummy cellar with loads of atmosphere and plenty of room to host guests:
photo credit. A fireplace! Sigh....I'm not even going to think about what the heat from that fireplace might do to that wine collection. We're in La La Land right now...there's no use letting practicality rear it's ugly head.
And then the third room just makes me think of Laura and her love of vintage:
That room has all the stuff for a gal's tasting party! (Plus, I can see plenty of silly, one-glass-too-many photo opportunities with that bronze bust on the table.)
Of course, there's no way anyone could actually make wine in any of those rooms, so maybe I should just enjoy what we have. But it's always fun to dream a little - and drool. :)
