While we at the Riot are taking this lovely summer week off to rest (translation: read by the pool/ocean/on our couches), we’re re-running some of our favorite posts from the last several months. Enjoy our highlight reel, and we’ll be back with new stuff on Wednesday, July 8th.
This post originally ran April 2, 2015.
If you’ve overstayed your welcome at one of these bookstore-bars or have already filled your cabinets with literary-themed wines, it might be time to take your wine and reading devotion to the next level.
At Book Riot, we support #booksandbooze love at all times. To you, that might mean displaying it proudly on a shirt or tote, with themed bookmarks, or on beautiful art that is not of the fake-grapes-and-random-corks variety.
(Steady your wallets. The yellow links above each piece take you directly to the shop.)
And I was delighted to discover this ever-appropriate tote.
The color! The whimsy! The books! I am so in love with everything this shop does.
A classic, simple print that might go well with…
Oh yeah, my wine-and-book themed, simple and modern mood board for a reading den is already coming together.
And maybe this is the first book you can put between those bookends. I tried to stay away from books about wine (there are soooo many), but this one was just too good not to share. A fun scratch-and-sniff guide that can make it approachable for even the most novice of drinkers.
I’m not generally a fan of charms because, let’s be honest, the glass ain’t leaving my hand. Buuuuut the idea of a book cover charm is pretty fantastic.
I adore this. Simple, yet lovely.
Another great wine bookmark, this time with cork!
Do I even need to explain why this needs to happen right now?
I couldn’t resist. There is absolutely no reason you need a hand-crafted rocking chair made from oak wine barrels, BUT, it is the prettiest. I’ll keep it on my mental list for my dream home, alongside the modern chic reading den, underground wine cellar, and library with those rolling ladder things.
