How did Group Therapy Wine get started?
Before starting Group Therapy Wine, my days were filled with boring business reports, exhaustive spreadsheets, drab office walls and politics that rival Congress.
When my family opened a wine shop, they wanted to offer unique products and gifts from local artists. Many of the products offered by their suppliers could be found in most shops around town. After an exhaustive search, they did not have much success in finding someone locally who made unique wine gifts.
They knew I loved to create things so they asked if I wanted to provide unique wine charms. I was just starting a new job and wasn’t sure if I could handle both. After much consideration and many long talks, the answer was clear – this is possible! After awhile, it was clear that this was a side job – most friends dubbed it my weekend hobby. But it was more, so much more because it had sparked my inner entrepreneurial spirit that had been hiding for so long.
I left my job and in 2015 made this my full-time gig. I set out to create unique wine charms and other fun wine gifts for wine lovers searching for authentic wine gifts. Many of them, like our Motorcycle Wine Charms, became customers’ favorites. My family encouraged me to add more product categories and expand my business online.
Group Therapy Wine has grown from it’s humble beginnings of unique wine charms. Today, we offer decorative wine bottle stoppers, funny key chains, decorative refrigerator magnets, wine bottle charms and handcrafted stone coasters. While this journey hasn’t always been easy, I enjoy every moment of designing new products, meeting customers and building this business. I especially love providing you with exclusive, unique gifts for wine lovers!
