About Wine Snazzies

about-wine-snazziesWhen you order a bottle of wine in a restaurant, have you ever wondered why the waiter ties a napkin around it? Granted, it adds a nice bit of flare to the setting, but the real reason is to protect the table from wine that drips down the bottle and creates (sometimes permanent) rings on the table or tablecloth.

We believe the surfaces in your home deserve the same level of protection. That’s why we created the patented Wine Snazzies. Just slip a disposable Wine Snazzie over the neck of the bottle before you start to pour the wine. No drips. No worries.

Wine Snazzies are perfect for family get-togethers, holiday dinners, social functions, or anytime you want to enjoy a bottle of wine and not have to worry about wiping off the bottle after you pour each glass.

Wine Snazzies are available in a variety of colors with a variety of Snazzy attachments to go with every occasion. We also offer custom Snazzies when you want them tailor-made just for you.

In addition to saving your tables, Wine Snazzies serves another, higher, purpose. Read the About Our Social Purpose tab to find out how Wine Snazzies is giving hope and meaning to the lives of people with disabilities.

 about-wine-snazzies-social-purposeAs a Certified Orientation and Mobility Instructor, Angela Johnson, founder of Angie’s Wine Design and creator of the patented Wine Snazzies, has assisted in the rehabilitation of many individuals who are blind, visually impaired, or have additional disabilities. Many of her students have a strong desire to return to work but lack opportunity. This is the main reason she employs individuals who are blind or visually impaired to manufacture Wine Snazzies.

It is estimated there are 1.3 million individuals in the United States who are blind or visually impaired and up to 75% of these individuals are unemployed. Many have a strong desire to be employed, but lack employment opportunities. About 31 percent of working-age people with visual impairments live below the poverty line, roughly double the overall national rate.

In the current economy, good jobs are hard to come by, even for the sighted, but the blind or visually impaired face additional challenges. Often employers professing an interest in hiring individuals who are blind often don’t follow through out of concern that they might be a bit slower with key tasks or require assistance that could be burdensome, although realistically this is not the case.

If a person who is blind or visually impaired gives up hope of finding a suitable job, it’s a terrible waste of human resources. With a few simple modifications, these same individuals are able to assemble Wine Snazzies as quickly and flawlessly as an individual who is sighted.

“I wanted to create employment opportunities for individuals who are visually impaired, blind, or have additional disabilities. I aspire to give individuals who may not get a chance to work the ability to maintain gainful employment and improve the quality of their lives.”

Creator of Wine Snazzies
