The steady growth of wine production by some estimates has increased by 35 percent a year in just the last five years. The recent influx of wineries in the Texas Hill Country has spurred a trend to opt for a custom wine room, not only to house this new “cash crop” investment, but to add and hold value to the home, something that a wet bar would not normally do.
While the contents of a liquor cabinet are not normally viewed as an investment, fine wines most certainly are, and therefore command much more attention to how they are displayed and stored. You just simply stand liquor upright on a shelf at room temperature in a cabinet or closet and don’t give it another thought until it is cocktail time. Not so with fine wine. It needs an optimum temperature and humidity range (55 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit with 50 to 70 percent relative humidity) and should lay neck down to keep the cork from drying out.

Texas Sun & Shade celebrates their 25th year in business serving Austin and Central Texas.
September marks the anniversary that Ben & Gudrun Skoldeberg, a husband and wife team, brought retractable awning systems to Austin. In 1987 the Skoldebergs, along with one business partner, saw an opportunity to expand their already successful awning business, located in northern Sweden, to a new market with much climatic need for these systems - and Texas Sun & Shade was born.
On September 26, the Skoldebergs held a celebration at Abel’s on the Lake to mark the anniversary of their business in Austin. They welcomed their staff, friends, family, clients and all of the business partners who have contributed to the success of Texas Sun & Shade over the past 25 years.
