Wine Design

Here are a few wine-designs making the rounds on the web. (click on images to enlarge.)

Una wine bottles, designed by Cibic Workshop. Una is the official wine of the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy, a combination of 20 different grapes representing each region. One is more masculine, the other more feminine, but I'll let you figure that one out.

You can get this Louis Vuitton personal wine carrier for only $5, 700. Put some Charles Shaw in that thing and it's only $5, 701.99. A bargain!


Since you just spent all your money on that Louis Vuitton thing, why not think about recycling your old wine crates into garden beds? That way you can afford to eat, too.

I have no idea what this is, but here's some more to look at.

This showed up in a recent post, Spanish chef Martin Berasategui's bottle design to keep sediment from getting into your glass. I believe the gentleman linked in that post asked - what if you store your wine on its side?

Aw...look at that cute USB drive... comes in donuts, too!

A little something to match your Brooks saddle, and at around $30 only a third the price.

Finally...this is a picture of a local store window - corks painted, strung, and hung - but if you're lacking a certain inner Martha Stewart, you can also recycle your corks.
