I’m not a wine expert, but I’ve always enjoyed a nice red. I’m more of a social person who enjoys the company of others, so the cellar has given my wife and I the opportunity to have friends drop in and share a glass of wine together.”They now have one bedroom which is theirs, one which they use as an office and another that’s a guest room.
