Wine & the Arts: Raquel Arantes & Simone Bischoff – Genius I know

Quite often, I sit around the house reflecting on my own genius. These are times of focused contemplation. They are also times that usually take, say, 42 seconds or so, ending in self recrimination and a modicum of depression.

Because all I need to do is look toward my family to see true genius. Take for instance my Mother-in-Law Raquel Arantes and my cousin Simone Bischoff.

Raquel is an extraordinarily gifted artist, and has developed a unique tool that is making the wine world swoon. Her Wine Aerator manages to be a breakthrough in a business nearly as old as time itself.

Raquel, wine aerator

From her Web site Artesanato do Vinho:

“It is the perfect gift for wine lovers and experts, alike. It’s the accessory that the wine cellar lacked. It adds a valuable new layer in the aeration of wine, intensifying a wine’s aroma and flavor, making the full manifestation of all its attributes come to life.”

If you’re a wine lover and would like more information, click here, or let me know and I can guide you to the exquisite Raquel and her multiple works.

Simone is exquisite in her own right. My cousin, who I recently met for the first time and who lives in Brazil, not only holds a doctorate in German Literature and Philosophy, but speaks fluent Latin, keeping the language alive my teaching others.

Also, her doctorate’s thesis, “Gottes Reich hat begonnen” (”God’s Realm Began”) was published and is available via Peter Lang Publishing.

Take a look at these two brilliant, talented and beautiful women and their works, and remember the William K. Wolfrum promise: “I’m no Genius, but I know genius when I see it.”
