Toasting the Peeps: The Ultimate DIY

Many people wonder how Mr. Peep got into the olive oil industry, and the truth is he has only been making olive oil for about a year and a half. Before that he spent almost ten years in the wine industry. In fact, when we first started dating Mr. Peep worked for a small winery in Napa Valley running their sparkling wine program. (Do you see where this is going?)

He's been in the wine industry for so long we have quite the collection of wine. Here's a portion of it.

This is in our guest bedroom. We wanted to make sure our guests don't get thirsty in the middle of the night! The floor slopes, so we had to lay the wine rack on it's side. In total we have about 12 to 15 cases of wine stored in our little apartment.

Needless to say, Mr. Peep has been very concerned from Day 1 about the wine that we are going serve at the wedding. We found out recently that we'd be able to bring in our own wine in for the cocktail hour! Whoo hoo.

So, in the ultimate DIY, we will be serving sparkling wine and red wine personally made by Mr. Peep. Here's just a sampling of the sparking wine that we may serve:

I can't imagine a better reason to raid our stash of wine. And I seriously can't wait for our first toast!

Has your job provided a DIY? What is your ultimate DIY?
