Expand San Antonio Wine Shop to Wine Bar

"EXPAND SAN ANTONIO'S WINE CULTURE BY TURNING VINOUSLY SPEAKING WINE SHOP INTO THE BEST LIL' WINE BAR IN TOWN!" - Cheers! Salud! Sante! My name is Cecilia Barretto and I, along with my business partner, Melissa Unsell, own Vinously Speaking Wine Shop & Blog, located in the Medical Center of San Antonio, TX. Our boutique shop offers a unique and affordable selection of small production wines from around the world. We are fast approaching our one year anniversary in business and we want to spring forward from our success this year by expanding into ... a small wine bar! 

We are launching a crowd-funding campaign to raise the funds necessary for us to turn our dream into a reality! The campaign will expand the business by allowing us to offer wines by the glass and provide a venue for private events and education. The timing is right, as our vibrant city continues to grow - we see great opportunity for the wine industry, and by donating, you can be a part of the movement. By reaching our funding goal, we can elevate the wine experience for our clients. 

Donate today so we can dive into the process. If you're curious, here's what we need: alcohol license, furnishings, decor, paint, lighting, bar build out, wine dispenser, stemware, utensils, updated computer system, additional water closet, wine storage and a few other items to get the ball rolling.

** If you are donating from outside the greater San Antonio,TX area we will find something of comparable value to send you for whichever reward level you donate at.
