This is such a delightful restoration. I love how bright and airy it is! Almost 1300 square feet, the home features, white exposed beams, bright white walls, and modern furniture.

What Wine Region of the World is My Wine From? and Wine Folly Book Review.

wine, book
Wine is one word that gets used here quite a bit. It's a must have whenever I am entertaining and whenever I need to unwind from the stresses of life. In fact, we never run out wine. Never. I have so many fond memories that involve wine. Like that time when we were in Gardaland Italy and had our first bottle of Valpolicella. I remember that taste distinctly and was so enamored.

 Fast forward to today and there is this amazing book called Wine Folly- the Essential Guide to Wine by Madeline Puckette and Justin Hammack that helps me to understand more about that bottle of wine I had in Italy.  Wine Folly provides enlightening information on wines and their regions. As a wine lover and someone who throughly enjoys traveling and soaking up other cultures, reading this book was amazing!

I've already learned from reading the book that my unforgettable Valpolicella wine is from the Veneto region of Italy and that Northern Italian wines have higher acidity, tart fruit, and herb flavors. I've also learned where all the wine regions of the world are. They are in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Chile, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, and the United States. I feel so wine smart! 

wine, entertain
Though I am really taken by the Wine Region information in the book because of my love for travel, Wine Folly offers a comprehensive guide to wine.  As an avid modern day hostess, I highly recommend it as a must have. In fact, it would make the perfect hostess gift and can be purchased here. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! xx
