Happy Sunday! This week’s picks in wine, food, lifestyle, design and travel.
Find the best of the best on Airbnb Luxe, the highest distinction that an Airbnb property can earn. Less than 5% of listings get this classification and go through a rigorous vetting process to get there. As a customer, you may find yourself in a world-class villa, mansion, castle, or sprawling estate – all come with dedicated staff or a trip designer.
I still receive much interest from you all around natural wine. Many like that everything in natural wine occurs naturally and with very low intervention. A quick primer on natural wine at the link.
This weekend retreat from the city is full of nature and a place that inspires. I love the serenity of the space filled with collectables from travel, an impressive art collection – and, as you’d expect from a fashion designer – gorgeous textiles.
The fanciest of French resorts lies within Evian-les-Bains, the famous French spa town. Cozy up in the Hotel Royal with it’s gorgeous interiors, Michelin-star restaurant, and luxurious spa. Or, take a catamaran ride – of course, while sipping the world’s most evenly-balanced mineral water! Sounds dreamy.
Amazon Dash carts are revolutionizing the shopping experience and I can’t wait to use one of these. You log into the app, scan items as you put them into your cart, and then skip the normal checkout lines. In addition, they have some cool features like the ability to weigh produce in the cart! Coming to Whole Foods soon…
A royal warship that sank in 1682 has recently been discovered off the coast of England. Artifacts from the site include lots of wine bottles, some featuring George Washington’s family crest. But yes, there is such a thing as too much wine aging!
A hidden self-portrait by Vincent van Gogh has been discovered behind one of his paintings, covered by layers of glue and cardboard for more than a century. A rare moment, indeed.
Hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing rest of the weekend!
