Wine Tasting

I went to a large wine tasting event at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel Saturday night and found these artists creating works of art out of old wine barrels. 

The small photo shows the barrel in the top photo after it was finished!

We tasted some pretty good wines to go with the art.

How cool! I love old wine barrels and this is a perfect use for them.

I went to a wine-tasting once. The people who ran the thing got mad at me 'cause I figured I should have a full glass of every wine to taste!

Hey, what do I know? :-)

I love a taste of wine. Or two. The third wine barrel is my favorite. It reminds me of ... ? I want to say Dean Martin but I don't recall him smoking cigars.

Some people are so talented! We had a new Total Wine store open here in Goodyear. I can only tell you that the parking lot was packed!
