What do you get when you incorporate wine bottles from Hillsboro New Mexico with electrical wiring? A new way to enjoy empty decanters from a local winery that has a nice local feel and taste!
Patty has sent us a pair of her latest Bottle Lamp creations:
“My two latest bottle lamps are gifts for friends that own and operate their own vineyard and tasting rooms, in New Mexico.
The La Morena bottle is intended for Vintage Wines, in Old Mesilla, as its label features the doors from the back patio. I had to fashion the ristra myself, but with the help of a YouTube video, it was easy.
The Black Range Vineyards bottle is intended for its namesake tasting room in Hillsboro. A local Etsy seller made the stopper, and I found a garland that looks like barbed wire, to finish it off. I used different LED’s for the fill lights. The wire is clear, but very supple, so it took a 100 light strand to fill it. The lights came with a controller that allows for 8 different lighting options.
I’m happy with how they turned out, and hope that Brian & Nicki enjoy them as well.”
Here’s a little bit of information for the Black Range Vineyard taken from their website:
Black Range Vineyards is a small winery in the town of Hillsboro, New Mexico where we grow grapes and make our wine. On the main street through town is where you will find our tasting room. Our patio and umbrellas are out front ~ you can’t miss us!
Eighty miles southeast of Hillsboro is our wine shop and tasting bar, Vintage Wines. Located in historic Mesilla, we are just off the plaza. Come and enjoy a bottle of wine – meet old friends or make new ones.
Patty’s bottle lamps have incorporated an LED light string and decorative touches that accentuate the bottles label. Taking the extra step to find a wine stopper that adds a special touch to a unique gift makes it even more thoughtful.
