What do you make?

We make wine inspired gifts.

How did you get started? Who inspired you? 

We are entering our 3rd year this month and Wine Winks was inspired by my love of wine, my need to find witty and functional gifts to show my gratitude for my friends and family. Can't think of a bad memory over a shared bottle of wine.  Thank them with a Wink!

What is your favorite part of what you do? 

Creative process.

What is the least favorite part of your maker process? 

Supply chain hiccups.

What does a day in your life look like?

The day starts with lots of Coffee, creating, strategy meetings, supply chain management, reaching out to retailers and fulfilling on-line orders and finally at the end of the day a glass of wine. 

What do you enjoy doing when you are not busy making?

I love laughing with my family around the kitchen island and hearing their stories of the day, snuggling with our puppy, working out to release some major stress and traveling with my husband to beautiful places.
