Glass House Gallery

Love a good glass house! This is a roundup of stylish see-through beauties, from midcentury masterpieces to 21st-century contemporaries. Pictured – this steel-and-glass stunner on Chicago’s North Shore, designed by architect Thomas Roszak as his personal home.

High-Speed Train in High Design

Very cool architecture, at work. Located in the heart of Tallinn, Estonia, this futuristic European transportation hub and high-speed train terminal will also function as an elevated public walkway above the capital city’s streets. Scheduled to open in 2026.

Top 100 Wines of 2019

Each year, Wine Spectator releases its Top 100 list, where editors select the most exciting wines from the thousands reviewed during the course of the year. These wines are a diverse group—ranging from emerging labels and regions to traditional estates exploring new directions. I always like to try a few of these bottles, but I also use this as a guide to producers and wines to look for in the new year.

Tariffs on European Wines

The Trump Administration is considering a 100% tariff on all European wines. As European vintners struggle to maintain sales in U.S. markets with a 25% tariff in place on many wines, they face a new potential hurdle. Until now, most of us weren’t feeling the impact of the 25% tariffs, as importers swallowed the cost in hope of maintaining sales. That won’t be possible with the new, higher tariffs – so if you’re a fan of European wines, keep an eye on this developing news.

Sip & Swim Destinations

What’s better than sipping a great glass of wine? How about enjoying it while breathing in fresh ocean air, sun overhead, and sand underfoot? Set off to one of these eight destinations that are primed for ocean worshippers and wine lovers alike. Pictured – just south of Cape Town, on a peninsula between the Atlantic and False Bay, Cape Point Vineyards pairs standout sauvignon blanc with sweeping ocean views.

40 Best Food & Wine Recipes

The 40 best-ever recipes from Food & Wine. Of the more than 24,000 recipes they’ve published since 1978, these are the ones that were so memorable, so revelatory, and so delicious that they made this list. So pour a glass of something delicious and get ready to cook. I’m going to try their Vegetable Hot & Sour Soup, shown here.

Christmas Movie Lineup

20 great Christmas movies on streaming right now. You’ll expect to see It’s a Wonderful Life, Home Alone and Elf. But I am also going to check out this new movie Klaus, a new hand-drawn modern holiday film from Netflix.

Hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing rest of your weekend!
