Brilliant idea and beautiful...I hate bugs in my wine-why didn't think of that?
Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 3, 2011
wine VEIL™, a unique new wine accessory, is arguably the hippest wine accessory developed in recent years. It is the perfect answer to enjoying wine outdoors. wine VEIL™ is designed to protect open wine in a glass, bottle or decanter from the insurgence of bugs. The form of the wine VEIL™ is soft and simple. It’s fashioned from sheer, washable fabric, beautifully hemstitched and weighted on each corner with lovely silver charms. wine VEIL™ comes is four rich colors and is sold in sets of four. Your wine breathes while simultaneously keeping the bugs out. Clever.
The attention to the wine VEIL™ has been enthusiastic and global. “As a product developer, the sweetest words you can hear are ‘I love this product… congratulations.’"
Sales have grown 125% since the soft launch in mid December, with dozens of wineries, wine stores and gift shops now endorsing wine VEIL™. With a strong sales focus and international interest one can expect to see this product just about everywhere.
This happened: In the early summer of 2010, two friends and long time business partners were enjoying a glass of wine in the garden of a favorite neighborhood bistro, when uninvited fruit flies joined the party... also expecting to enjoy some wine. The sommelier quickly came to their rescue with plastic wrap to protect the wine between sips. They looked at each other... a light went off... and wine VEIL was born in just that instant.
