Wine Crafts: Centerpieces

 

Wine Crafts: Centerpieces
 
With a little bit of elbow grease and a few empty bottles of wine (Noisy Water Wine that is), you can create some beautiful and unique centerpieces for any occasion. They give life to an empty table, a beautiful addition to the dining room or a stunning piece at a wedding. This can be as easy as tossing some greenery or flowers in an empty wine bottle, or as extravagant as removing the label and redecorating the entire bottle.

We'll walk you through the few steps we took to liven up the tasting room, plus show you a couple other options, so you can get those creative juices flowing...wine juices that is.  
One of my favorites to make is a clear glass vase and add big, bright flowers to really make it pop! Once I polished off my current favorite wine, 2019 Skin Fermented Chenin Blanc, I let it soak in HOT soapy water for about five minutes to help peel off the label and any leftover residue on the bottle. Occasionally they use the really good stuff and I'll need a bit of adhesive remover.

You can then take your blade on a wine corkscrew or a utility knife to take off the foil capsule. Please be careful here as some of the capsules are rolled on very tightly, and remember to always cut away from yourself.
I saw these beauties at the nursery and loved the color. They looked great in the tasting room in Ruidoso with all the newly stained wood floors and the white shelves that got repainted during our remodel last winter.

I made sure to add a few accent pieces to give the centerpiece some depth (this one had some fake cotton branches/bolls I had laying around). 
We've done some in the past by painting them as well! Here is a take on one we had at our wedding venue here at Enchanted Vine. They used a matte paint on some different style bottles which really gave the centerpiece a neat dynamic!
Another Noisy Water Family Member made these two fun and stylish twine wrapped pieces for her home. After a bit of cleanup, a little hot glue, and a few things found around the house these two bottles welcome you into her home.
Let us know which wine crafts you've done, we'd love to see them!

A Quick Guide To Removing Wine Stains

The saying goes "don't cry over spilled milk." But spilled wine is definitely a cause to be at least a little bit sad! Your precious vino is wasted, and it's probably stained something you care about like your clothes, your couch, or (even worse) your white carpet. Luckily, we've got a few tricks up our sleeve to help you get rid of those stubborn stains. 

General Cleaning Tips
 
Don't scrub, blot! Scrubbing can cause the stain to absorb even further, while blotting removes additional wine before you begin cleaning. Blot the stain with a paper towel or rag until no more residue comes off. 
 
Don't let it sit! As tempting as it may be, try not to let the stain sit before you begin cleaning. The longer it sits, the harder it will be to remove.
 
Don't throw in the towel...literally! It might be tempting to give up, especially if you're trying to clean white wine (which can be peskier to remove although the pigments aren't as vibrant). Keep blotting, cleaning, and repeating and you'll eventually succeed!
Removing Red Wine Stains
 
Salt: Salt is especially helpful when removing red wine stains from couches, rugs, or carpet. After blotting, cover the stain with a generous amount of salt. Once the salt soaks into the wet wine, let it dry completely. It should absorb the stain once dry. Then, vacuum up the salt residue. 
 
Dish soap and hydrogen peroxide: Mix a solution of 1/2 dish soap and hydrogen peroxide. Pour the solution over the stain and let it soak. Then rinse, blot, and repeat until clean.
 
Baking soda and water: Create a paste by mixing three parts baking soda and one part water. Apply to the stain and vacuum once dry. 
Removing White Wine Stains
 
Cold water and laundry detergent: This method works great for items you can't throw in the wash. Pour cold water over the stain and blot with a rag covered in laundry detergent (the liquid kind works best). Repeat until the stain is removed.
 
Dishwashing detergent, white vinegar, and water: Mix one part liquid dishwashing detergent with one part white vinegar and two parts warm water. Sponge the mixture onto the stain until it is removed. Then, sponge with cold water and blot the area until dry.
Hopefully you don't need to use these methods, but if they come in handy that probably means you need some more wine...we happen to know where you can get some

Our Top 3 Wines For An Amazing Valentines Day

 

2017 Absolution

This special blend of Malbec, Merlot, Ruby Cabernet, and Cabernet Sauvignon is sure to make your Valentine swoon. Dark berries on the nose lead into maple, vanilla, and jammy notes with a finish that's smooth as silk. 

2019 Pinot Noir Rose

The best things in life, like love and rose, take time. This rose was crafted with 25 year old Pinot Noir grapes that underwent 12 hours of skin contact to create an unforgettable complexity. Berries fold into crisp citrus flavors with a bold berry finish.

La Vida Dulce

This sweet red, named after "The Sweet Life," is a sophisticated late harvest Mourvèdre made by leaving the grapes on the vine longer so that they continue to sweeten. Vanilla, raspberry, and strawberry notes lead into a sweet, jammy middle that finishes sweet and silky. Enjoy the sweet life with your sweetie!
