Wine, Storage & Growing up

wine box


We are not huge drinkers in our house but growing up in SA, a Wine Producing country I do have a soft spot for a glass on the weekend with a nice home cooked meal and some adult conversation once in a while. I have been saying since we bought the house it would be nice to get a small wine rack, it just seems like something a "grown-up" house should have even though we don't regularly buy a bottle it would still be great to have somewhere nice to store them and this would of been especially useful when we recently received a VineBox from Wine & Sympathy - a wine subscription box which delivers carefully selected wine to your doorstep every month and best of all they also do a cheese box, what could be better paired with a glass of vino at the end of the day.

The nice thing about these boxes is not only does it take the stress out shopping but each bottle comes with information and tips on how to serve it best. Our favourite by far was the Bodegas Fontana red which is wonderfully smooth and perfected with some tapas once the kids have gone to bed.

I love this simple but stylish wine rack (image)


When it comes to storage and display I want some small and neat that is not only practical but also stylish. Etsy have some amazing handmade wine racks and cases such as the one above as I think this would fit our needs. Of course it would be amazing to have our own cellar but I doubt we will ever have the space for something like this but we a wall unit we can have the best of both worlds.

Like I said Wine & Sympathy also do a monthly cheeseboard which consists of 4 specially selected premium cheeses straight to your door and best of all one lucky reader has the chance to win 1 cheeseboard to try out for themselves. The prizes is for on off cheese box worth £34.90 and it's super easy to enter and the giveaway ends on the 6th October
