Now on with the show, SFMOMA, or the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, has just launched a very interesting show revolving around the culture of wine and how architecture and design have been used in wine’s transformation into an important cultural trend.

The exhibit started November 20 and goes to April 17, 2011. Here’s the press release to learn more about the show:
