Are you a winer? Wine trends in 09March 8, 2009
Wine trends continue to dominate the design of high end luxury homes. Not only do most estate homes come with a built-in wine cellar but now…wine tasting rooms are de rigueur. A recent estate home in Orlando comes complete with a 1,000 square foot room dedicated to the art of wine tasting.
Wine is gaining in popularity in the United States as more people are stretching their palates to discover different types, styles and wine flavors. It is anticipated that this love affair with wines will make American’s the largest consumers of wine (even more than the French) by the year 2015.
Therefore, it is not going to be unusual to find, in today’s luxury home, the presence of not only a wine cellar, but a place to entertain and share your favorite drink with friends.
To quote Shakespeare, “Good wine is a good familiar creature if it be well used.”
