I never paid much attention to wine capsules–the foils you remove to open a bottle of wine. OK, maybe some are easier than others to cut. But once I wandered into the Ramondin showroom, I was totally charmed by these beautiful miniature sculptures!
I want a cool one for Virage!!
Isn’t this like everything in life–focus on it, learn a bit, and you want the beautiful, refined thing. Note to self: stay out of showrooms.
But in this case, yippee, only costs a few cents more to do a custom color.
Some brands go all out, decorating the top and sides (the “skirt”), using embossed letters and designs. Looking at them all together, you can’t help but be impressed.
I took home a little box of favorites —all rich dark golds, bronzes, browns, eggplants, black–and I carry them around like a box of chocolate truffles. Actually, they look a bit like chocolate truffles. No wonder I’m craving chocolate.
What fun to choose!! But, back to reality, not fun on a deadline! Guess what, they are made in Spain, and guess who goes on vacation the entire month of August. Uh oh. Decisions, decisions… I think a matte black to match the “virage” script, or maybe a very dark chocolate brown/black. Nice to have a tiny bit of sparkle.
After all, this bottle should be dressed for dinner.
