WHERE ART MEETS WINE IN THE COOLEST WAY ...

The Vinum Project Launches for Sophisticated Gift Giving by Art and Wine Lovers
The Vinum Project, a collection of imagery that is unparalleled in its humorous and vibrant take on the fusion of wine and contemporary art, launched today for wine and art lovers who are looking for the ideal gifts just in time for Valentine’s Day.
“Much like the holidays, wine is a unifier. It’s something that your Aunt in Texas shares in common with your BFF in LA and your odd colleague at work. It’s a common denominator for bringing people together in a world that can feel very divided these days. Yet when we think about wine, most of the images that are top of mind are largely outdated, white table clothes, etc. – so out of touch with the real humans diving in to experiences and cultures surrounding the amazing world of wine. Our offering combines sophisticated elements of wine and the wine industry with bold pops of color and different perspectives that embody a young and fresh outlook. Cool, yet affordable gifts are hard to come by so we end up leaning on the tried and trues a little too often, said Vanessa Price, Founder of The VinumProject.

Michelle McSwain and Vanessa Price are the trash food + wine pairing dream team you never knew you needed
If your boss asks you to cover an event and that event happened to be an art show you’d say, “Yeah, I love art I’m always into that.” But what if they said, “Do you want to cover an art show that will have a wine pairing?” then you’re like, “Not only do I love art, I love wine. Please let me cover this event.” But wait, what if they then said, “Do you want to cover this art show that will feature wine pairings with food such as Cheetos, Sourpatch Kids, and fried chicken?” You’d be saying something like, “Hey yeah, I’d love to and also I’m going be working for whichever humans thought of that, as of today. Goodbye, I’ll remember you fondly.”
