Check out this gorgeous rustic wine rack that just arrived in the mail! (Isn’t it like a mini-Christmas when online orders arrive?) See below for ideas of how to make one yourself, or buy a similar style online.
I scored this wine rack on clearance from One Kings Lane for $49. I am so happy with the way it looks in our dining room! The 3-panel canvas above the wine rack is a photo I took during a bike ride through Tuscany in 2012. And, guess what we were doing on that bike ride? Yep; wine tasting! Perfect.
What is a riddling rack, you ask? (I didn’t know either, until I was looking for a name for my new wine rack.) Riddling is a process in the making of champagne, in which the bottles are stored at a forty-five degree angle and then shaken every few days, to remove sediment.
