The Rest of The Dining Areas

 First, some underwater scenes .... then our area.  Ours was more like a state dinner.  The wines we tasted are the last picture in the series.

Fool's Gold Home

 These came home a week ago.  Don't they look nice?  I asked for patriotic designs, as I had made them red, white and blue.  The ladies delivered.  Thank you!

In The Dining Rooms

 Cricova has a series of dining rooms of various sizes and themes.  Here's the first of two sets of photos showing them.  The food on the one table is what they served us while we were tasting the wine!

Riddle Me This

 Okay, so the no touching  sign looks more like a no pinching sign...  and we were in the riddling room.  Riddling is the process of turning champagne bottles so the sediments collect properly in the neck.  At Cricova, it's done by hand and there are a -lot- of bottles!

Bluing The Background

I'm pleased with my progress on this piece.  It's filling in quickly and looks very nice.

Cricova Bottling Area

 Cricova actually showed us part of their production area.  This is where they bottle sparkling wine.

Doesn't Look Like Much

The picture's small, but it's wide.  I'm almost to the edge of the bottom.  It's about time to start working my way up.
