Kitchen Wine Storage

Believe it or not, wine was once associated with the elite or European. Sipping a nice glass of Pinot, aged perfectly and just retrieved from the wine cellar – Fancy. Not anymore.  Wine decor is found in every store and wine and paint nights are the new “Ladies Night”. Less expensive wine has made wine a must have in American households.

Shaker style has become a more popular trend due to its ability to work with nearly every decorating style, color, and mood.
