Got a typical night of champagne-and-cheering lined up? Impress your hung-over friends with a chair made from champagne corks and wire.
The resulting tiny chair makes a cute little christmas ornament, or dollhouse furniture, or just an interesting little nicknack! And a neat way to save a momento from an important bottle of champagne (like from a wedding, hot date, or special event).

In a market where the average bottle of wine includes just 30p of wine along with GBP 1 of marketing, packaging and other costs, Naked Wines bills itself as an online farmers’ market dedicated to "the kind of winemakers who want to spend their lives making great wine, rather than selling it."
The site currently features 18 winemakers from Argentina, France, Spain, New Zealand and South Africa. Beyond simply listing basics such as their locations and product characteristics, however, Naked Wines includes a full-page profile for each one, complete also with their backgrounds, some personal details and their views on making wine. Users of the site can create profiles, rate wines, and chat with each other as well as the winemakers they’re interested in.
Based on what they’ve liked so far, Naked Wines can also make recommendations in Amazonesque fashion. All new wines are sent to a panel of consumer testers before they’re added to the site, and all purchases come with a money-back guarantee. Through the Naked Angel program, meanwhileâ€”embraced by many of the site’s vintnersâ€”consumers can get 6 free bottles of wine plus 33 percent cash back on purchases when they prepay GBP 5 per month toward participating winemakers’ wines.

This 2006 cabernet sangiovese is the winner of the 2008 Coriole and Adelaide Zoo WildWines Commission.
"This typographic wine label solves the design problem of needing to communicate two different brands within one cohesive design. The wine label is themed on the striking black and yellow colouring of the corroborree frog – one of the Conservation Ark animals, highlighting their plight on the label whilst also quite literally highlighting ‘corroboree frog’ in yellow type."

Back in the summer we wrote about the super-cool collaboration between famed French champagne house Veuve Clicquot and iconic Italian yacht builder Riva. Now Veuve and Riva have teamed up again to produce a new yacht-inspired gift box (above) for a bottle of Veuve Clicquot’s exquisite La Grande Dame 1998. Made of mahogany, chrome and black lacquer and modeled on one of Riva’s classic Dolce Vita-esque wooden motoryachts – their latest, the $944,000 Aquariva Super, just debuted at the New York Boat Show – the box is priced at $140. La Grande Dame is Veuve Clicquot’s prestige cuvÃ©e, named after its legendary founder, Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin.
