Entertainment Rooms, Home Theaters, Bars, and Game Rooms - Book Description:
"If you are contemplating a stay-cation this year, you might want to pump a little money into your resort. Perhaps an upgrade of your TV room to home theater, or the addition of a neighborhood bar where you can hang out and listen to your favorite music. This book takes you to homes where the owners have invested in their own private Shangri-Las, from upgraded entertainment rooms to full-out theater experiences complete with popcorn machines. In addition to super dramatic cinematic presentations, there are home bars that range from the simple corner counter to sports bars with multiple viewing screens and billiard tables. For those with more refined tastes there are wine cellars and tasting rooms, and the book rounds off with a splash, exploring indoor pools. Nearly 200 lavish, full-color photographs will convince you that there really is no place like home."
Germano Custom Wine Cellars were featured in the Nashville WinePress August/September 2006 issue. Nashville WinePress is Middle Tennessee's "premiere wine resource" offering interviews, happenings, wine reviews and articles "all designed to quench your thirst for wine knowledge."
