These wine racks are like nothing I’ve ever seen – solidly engineered with precision from reclaimed barn wood, there’s no chemical treatment whatsoever and every crevice and grain of the wood, undoubtedly, has a story to tell.

Having just returned from the gorgeous Horse Heaven Hills AVA in southeastern Washington, I’ve barely had time to unpack while I’m already thinking about what to pack for the upcoming 27th Annual International Pinot Noir Celebration (IPNC).

Ahhhh, Spring is in the air…or so we all thought. Two days ago I was admiring the daffodils and blossoming trees. Today, the second day of Spring, those same flowers and trees are blanketed in about 6 inches of snow.
