What do you get when you combine fabulous wine, scrumptious food, a showcase modern kitchen and an innovative home wine cellar? A perfect episode of Fine Wine and Design!

WINE~

Lawrence Dunham Vineyards, located in Cochise County at the base of the Chiricahuas near Wilcox, is where Arizona’s “juice” comes full circle. They have a passion for fine wine, food and design. Curt is an amazing chef and understands the chemistry of cooking AND wine-making. Their wines pair fabulously with food, however Curt does not pair a wine with the meal but rather prepares a meal with his wine choice. The Rhone varietals such as Petite Sirah, Grenache, Syrah and Viognier were purposely chosen because the vineyards rocky soil is very similar to that of Southern France. You can taste the planning and passion in every bottle they produce. And their passion doesn’t stop with what’s IN their bottles. Peggy and Curt certainly have a talent for design as well. They built their dream home in Fountain Hills around their 2000 bottle wine cellar. Nestled against a mountain wall their modern racking system displays each bottle beautifully. Every bottle has a story. Each time they pull a bottle out they relive their experience with the winemaker. And it doesn’t stop with the wine cellar. Their entire home is a reflection of Peggy’s exquisite taste in interior design and art. This talented couple certainly is a perfect pairing!

A California brand that has become a familiar and respected concept in most households and businesses is ONEHOPE Wine. Since its inception in 2007 they have expanded into a variety of markets across the country. Through ONEHOPE Wine, wine lovers are able to enjoy a great wine and give back to a wide range of charitable organizations. Giving back is a good business! ONEHOPE Wine donates 50% of its profits to partner charities and has raised over $750,000 for these organizations. They are a unique wine brand where each varietal benefits a specific cause. ONEHOPE Wine…the thoughtful choice of MANY!
