Wine Can Stain
Spill wine on your carpet and you try...really try...to get it out.
On the other hand some people use wine to stain things on purpose. Take Ryan Hill of the Hill Family Estate, for example. Located in Yountville, California, this winery is one of over 400 wineries in the Napa Valley.
How do you make your winery different...march to a different drum...or guitar? You team up with Fender Guitars and stain some wood for them. And you use wine. Red wine. In fact Ryan and winemaker Doran used a special blend of red grapes to stain the wood samples. Fender produced 100 "Hill Harvest Red" stained limited edition 60th Anniversary Stratocasater Guitars.
This is one of them. And it is beautiful.
