The Vinsi Wineform Story
The creation of the Vinsi Wineform has been an 18-month adventure for me. When I started, I had no idea of what it took to bring a product to market; from initial concept drawings, to working with industrial designers to ensure the product would fit together, look good and work properly, to my new friends in the local injection molding industry.
Suffice to say, it's been a huge learning experience. And now that the Wineform is a reality, I can honestly say; I've loved every minute of it. And I'm already making plans for my next two or three Kickstarter campaigns! And one last, very important, thing. Although I am the ‘face’ of the Vinsi Wineform, this was not a solo journey. There are countless friends and family who have provided insight, support, direction, expertise, and encouragement that allowed my kitchen-table sketches to become a manufacturing reality.
It really did take a small village of people, and you each know who you are. I could not have travelled this route alone, so to each of you I raise my glass and say thank-you!
