My good friend, sommelier Heather Willens (with whom I used to share an office) and I are doing a series of wine and design events at my temporary gallery/shop space in Palermo Soho.
Heather talks about Argentine wine, we taste five wines from small production Argentine wineries, and I have put together a collection of design objects including ceramics, handwoven textile rugs and throws, vintage glass, Argentine art, and one-of-a-kind furniture pieces - all of which are for sale.
We're using an empty shop space owned by our good friends Lilian & Alfonso, which is well located, filled with natural light and has a pretty patio garden. I wish I could keep it permanently!
