It's Wine Week here at Newly Crunchy Mama Of 3! I know there are so many wine lovers out there, and this week is full of products you're sure to love. Even if you don't drink wine, perhaps you have wine drinkers on your Holiday gift list and you'd like to find something unique and creative to give them. Whatever your reason for stopping by, be sure to check out my current giveaways for several wine related features!
The next product I'd like to tell you about are the absolutely drool-worthy wine charms from Il Bere. More often than not, wine is served during special occasions and family gatherings. This can lead to confusion because as people mingle, they often set their drinks down and forget which glass belongs to them. (I have done this quite a few times myself!) This is where Il Bere wine charms come to the rescue. With wine charms, each person can make their glass uniquely their own and easily identifiable should their glass be set down temporarily. This is great news during cold and flu season when you want to avoid the germs of others!
These are not your typical charms, either! Most wine charms must be attached at the stem of the glass, but this can be quite troublesome when you're drinking from a regular, stemless glass. Il Bere wine charms are totally unique because they're magnetic, and can be applied to any type of drinking glass....Yes, even those cheap plastic ones seen at BBQ's during the summer time. (Hey, I have been known to drink wine and mixed drinks out of these on occasion...Don't judge!)
Before I show you how gorgeous these unique wine charms are, I'd love to tell you more about Il Bere and the two lovely ladies behind this concept:
"Il bere, which means ”to drink” in Italian, is a concept that was born during a recent trip through Northern Italy. Marnette Wilcox and Chrissy Olsen packed up their husbands and took off for a romantic trip to Venice, Florence, Siena, Santa Margherita, and Lake Como. Wine was the staple of the trip, and there was no limit on consumption of the incredible vino available. With the consumption came the typical problem of remembering who put their wine glass where. “Mark your drink” became a common theme and helped create the concept of Il bere."
The awesome folks at Il Bere sent me 2 sets of wine charms for my review. One from the stunning Vintage line and one from the more contemporary and playful Classic line.
So we had these gorgeous wine charms...We had a couple of bottles of wine to review...Naturally, we decided to crack open a bottle of Chenin Blanc and give these wine charms a try! Please note, I am not afraid of my husband's germs. But I still thought it was fun to add a touch of glass to otherwise ordinary wine glasses.
We chose to try the Vintage charms first. Okay. I decided this. My husband really didn't care either way. He's your typical man and doesn't pay much mind to little frills and accessories. He did remark how pretty they were, though, so this is definitely a score for the ladies at Il Bere!
These charms were very simple to use. You just remove the magnet from the back of the card within the packaging, drop into your glass, and then hold the charm to the outside of the glass until the magnets attract. Then you just slide them into your desired position! Pretty neat, right?
We were impressed not only by the beauty of the wine charms, but by how well they stayed in place. They did not slide around at all, and never dropped into the bottom of the wine glasses. I have used these charms several times now, and have found they work like a charm not only in our nicer wine glasses, but in junky plastic cups as well. These are definitely the perfect party accessory, or a nice way to add a touch of flair to any romantic dinner.
Il Bere has a staggering variety of designs to choose from, so there's definitely something for everyone. There are loads of fun, feminine designs. But there are also more masculine designs sure to please the manliest of men, too! They even have them for every occasion and season! Oh, and if you don't find the perfect wine charms, (which I'm sure you will) you can even have them custom made to your own specifications. How cool is that?!
I would definitely recommend Il Bere Wine Charms to anyone looking for something special to give to that wine lover this Holiday season...Or keep for yourself for entertaining purposes! So head on over to Il Bere and order a set or 10. These are wonderfully well-made and so beautiful, one set will surely not be enough!
