Woodzee makes sunglasses out of wood. In November, they’re teaming with Northern California’s Robert Mondavi Private Selection to offer glasses made of repurposed barrels, wine stains included. The wood is smooth and the aroma heavenly.
They come in four different lenses but the same wayfarer-esque shape.
“We have these barrels on hand. Why not turn them into something,” said Sally Campion, associate marketing manager for the wine label.
The glasses retail for $120.
“Whiskey” by John Lamond, a useful beginner’s guide from the “Instant Expert” series. It combines cursory fundamentals (whiskey categories, what glassware to use), followed by a brief and breezy field guide to a handful of Scotch, Irish, American and international whiskey brands. With its Moleskine-like size and design, it’s a good bet for anyone bewildered about how to navigate beyond Jack Daniel’s.
