Make sure you keep the wine flowing at your holiday celebration with ArtWalk’s selection of wine accessories.

The downtown Boone gallery offers blown glass goblets, unique “hillbilly” wine glasses, wire cork cages, an assortment of handmade wine stoppers, and more.

According to ArtWalk, “All of these items make great hostess gifts or presents for the wine enthusiast in your life; a one-of-a-kind stopper or clever cork cage makes for a great pairing when given with a nice bottle.”

To memorialize a particularly good bottle of holiday wine, a scrollwork iron candelabra fits in the neck of an empty bottle, creating a unique way to light and decorate the dining room table. Another unusual wine gift is a corkboard made from recycled corks, or, for the lady wine-lover, a pair of earrings or a necklace made of corks adorned with crystals and beads.

Other items include wine-themed wall art, as well as hand-turned wooden wine stoppers, and whimsical globe-shaped cork cages.

ArtWalk is located at 611 W. King St., across from the Mast General Store. Holiday hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call (828) 264-9996 or email (
