After our tasting in Swanson Vineyards' Salon, we headed next door to check out their Sip Shoppe. More casual than the Salon, Sip Shoppe hosts informal tastings amidst shelves and tables stocked with Swanson Vineyards wine and goodies. Thomas Britt also worked his magic here, this time tenting the entire space in bold red and white striped awning canvas. You know how I love a tented room, so to borrow a line from Rachel Zoe, I died. Actually, I think that I died over everything there!
It's all about the stripes.

He couldn't stop me from buying a few bottles of wine.
What a lucky rooster.
Ira Yeager's charming paintings grace the Sip Shoppe too.
I couldn't resist taking a photo of this top hat champagne bucket.
The courtyard makes you think you're in Italy or France.
Actually, forget Italy. Thanks to French crooner Michel and his barrel organ, you definitely feel like you're in France!
