Public Displays of Wine Affection with VintageView
I'm a wine-lover....lately it's been right up there with my love of chocolate and shoes. I mean after a long day, you take the cute heels off, put your feet up with a glass of Pinot and a good cheese plate or some dark chocolate and it's pretty much a little slice (and sip) of heaven, am I right? And I'm definitely married to a long-time wine-lover....my hubs was the one who really introduced me to good wines and has been building up our wine collection over the years. He also happens to be super handy and built out our own little wine cellar in our basement to store said growing collection. And for those who love and collect wine, you probably know that how you store it is almost as important as how and when you drink it....think consistent temperature, low light, minimal disturbance and, if you want to look extra-good, label-forward.
So when I was given the opportunity to collaborate with Denver-based, label-forward wine storage company, VintageView, you bet I was like, "Cheers... I'll drink to that." If you have been following me on social media for any amount of time, you've probably seen a few of my VintageView posts where I visited different restaurants around Denver to check out their wine racking....if you haven't yet been to Guard & Grace, Osteria Marco or The Pig & The Sprout, I definitely recommend visiting them for not only the food, but the wine and the pretty wine cellars too. In addition, to the restaurant photos, I recently also posted a couple pics of both their traditional metal racks in our home cellar and their modern-chic Grain & Rod panels in our dining room. And I have to say that this has been such a fun partnership and I have been really impressed with both the company and their products.
If you're not super familiar with VintageView, they are a local Denver company that makes label-forward wine storage options for both commercial and residential use. Their racks can be fit to any space and hold any size wine collection.....whether you have a home wine cellar where you can fit 500 bottles or just a bit of wall space in your first apartment, there are lots of options so it really doesn't matter the size of your space at all. Besides metal racking they've also added the wood/metal combo with the Grain & Rod panels I mentioned (which happen to be my personal faves!). For ours we chose the Dark Walnut stain, one bottle deep, but you can choose from two other color options and can do up to three bottles deep or cork-forward as well (you can visit their site here to see all that's available). And in addition to their Grain & Rod, they also offer other wall-mounted racking including metal columns and both metal and acrylic pegs. All seem to be easy to install and pretty affordable too, which is a plus in my book. Feel free to read more about their design, history and storage options on their site at www.vintageview.com.
As far as my personal experience with VintageView, it has been a really fun one! Not only did I have a blast visiting different Denver dining spots and taking fun wine pics, but when it came to our home cellar, the whole process was super easy. We just gave VintageView our cellar and wall measurements and took a photo of each space, and we got back a proposed design, drawings of how the racks would fit in the spaces and specs on how many bottles they would hold. Now we just need to keep collecting the wine to fill up the racks! And that's the good part right? Oh and I also had such a great time hosting a happy hour event with them at my house where I got to hang out with my blogger girls, drink some good Colterris wines, learn a little more about wine space design and just have an all-around fun evening! Plus I got to do an episode of their Wine & Design series just chatting about wine and fashion (you can view the episode here).
So all that to say if you're a wine-lover like me and have any questions about the VintageView products or process, please don't hesitate to drop a comment and ask! Ok, now off to kick off the heels, open a bottle of Pinot and cheers the weekend!
