"The Hippest Winery In Mexico Is Made Of Recycled Boats"

Architects Alejandro D’Acosta and Claudia Turrent have carved a niche designing stunning, upscale wineries and other buildings in Baja.They specialize in finding uses for offbeat, reclaimed material. 

It’s wine o’clock — okay, it isn’t yet here in Texas, but it is somewhere — which means it’s time to share a wine-related repurposing find …

Today’s find:  A winery constructed from boats.

(See more in Unconsumption’s wine o’clock series here; previous boat-related posts: here.)

At last, it’s wine o’clock again, which means it time to share an adult beverage-related repurposing find!

Today’s find, via Randy & Meg’s Garden Paradise, is bottle trees. (Or would you say they’re flowers?)

It’s wine o’clock (somewhere), so time to share an adult beverage-related repurposing find. 
Today, it’s Champagne corks used as bike handlebar caps. (photo by Jon Heslop)

It’s wine o’clock somewhere — which means it’s time to share another wine-related repurposing find. 
Today, it’s wine corks used as floor covering. 
This photo, via MSN, shows the cork-floor handiwork of Dan Phillips, of Huntsville, Texas-based Phoenix Commotion (mentioned previously on Unconsumption here), which constructs affordable homes from recycled, salvaged, and/or found materials.

It’s wine o’clock somewhere, which means it’s time to share a wine-related repurposing find.

Today, it’s stools made from corks. (Could also be used as side tables, maybe?)

If, like me, you’re wondering what these stools’ cores consist of, the source says the stools are “100% cork." So, there’s that!

Cork seating spotted on LikeCool. Thanks to our friends @dothegreenthing for the tip!

Save wine bottles, make your own tables. 

Simply insert bottles in to openings in pieces of wood. In addition to use as table tops, the pieces of wood (in this case, they’re scrap wood sealed with a wax finish) can function as serving trays.

Brazilian designer Tati Guimarães designed this collection. We featured her metal frame that holds corks — for use as trivets, or to hang on a wall — on Unconsumption here (way back in June 2009!). Check out her site, Ciclus, for additional information.

See also: Earlier Unconsumption post on shelving made from wine bottles and pieces of wood.

When wine o’clock rolls around, find yourself nestled in a Sleeping Barrel in the Rhine Valley.
Translated from the German website (courtesy of Google Translate):
Our farm is located about 350 meters above the flowers and wine village Sasbachwalden, right at the foot of the Hornisgrinde, Hotopp beautiful Black Forest. Our sleep barrels on Quince space right in front of our farm with stunning views over the Rhine valley to the Vosges. Here you can enjoy the best views of all our courses. 
 All drums are equipped with 2 m double beds, but which can be separated on request. Parking is located directly on the farm. Our sleep barrels you can reach from there only on foot.

Popped any corks lately? Check out this lamp: British artist/designer Alkesh Parmar made it from Champagne corks. 
Want to see more adult beverage-related repurposing? We’ve featured a bunch of it in our wine o’clock series here.

It’s wine o’clock somewhere(!), which means it’s time to share a wine-related repurposing find.
Today’s find is a DIY idea: Combine corks with scrap fabric to make a nativity scene.
For additional reuse ideas, see earlier posts in Unconsumption’s wine o’clock series here, and holiday-oriented posts here and here.

It’s wine o’clock (somewhere), which means it’s time to share an adult beverage-related repurposing find.
Today: Corks made into a curtain — which could serve as a room divider.
To make your own: Collect corks (have fun with that!), attach small eye hooks to them, and hang the strings of corks from a rod. 
For additional inspiration, check out Unconsumption’s wine o’clock series — a semi-regular series of Friday afternoon posts — here.
