My wine cabinet

Have I ever shown you my wine cabinet? No? Here it is.

It was made by Mr. Mambo, our furniture-maker in Jakarta. It was copied from one of the furniture magazines from which he makes his stuff.

I love it very much. It has a (red) marble top and a wooden rack for hanging wine glasses. I have the bad habit of putting empty bottles at the top. Many of them I keep for reference until I have written about the specific wine.

In the tropics one cannot store wine in the base of the cabinet because it is just too hot for that. But my hopes are high that once we have moved to Glenburn for good, I can use it, at least during the colder months of the year.
