I am not a wine connoisseur. It’s not that I don’t like wine, I lack the sensitive palate to differentiate between the spices and flavors. My gauge on if I’ll take another sip is whether or not it stings my gums. I simply can’t tell the difference. Perhaps with training. I’m a beer guy, the hoppier the better but a solid pilsener, the older the brewery the better, is what populates the fridge. Try a Radeberger sometime, or if you want to drink a gem of a beer, grab a kolsch (Gaffel, Victory or Coast). For those on the west coast, Arrogant 22’s are hidden in a special place :)
Back to the wine. A customer was looking for a speakeasy grille. They mentioned that the driving force behind the design of their front gate was their involvement in the wine world. They wanted to capture the winery aesthetic “right out of the gate”.
I knew exactly what they needed. I have a great wine themed set of door hardware, perfect for the home, great for restaurants, wine cellars, wineries and of course, vineyards. Available in 4 finishes; Flat Black, Brown Rust, Red Rust and Dark Bronze. The image above features the speakeasy grille and door pull handles in brown rust on an ironwood gate. Ironwood gates are coming soon to Martell Hardware, subscribe to my email newsletter or check my blog for the announcement!
