Tell us a bit about yourself
I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I studied marketing in university and as part of my study I have done several exchanges in different countries in Asia. During my exchange in Hong Kong I fell in love with the city and it never occurred to me that I would get a job in the city back in 2012. I love going out with friends and meeting new people, and I am always in the mood for a good conversation or a drink. If the weather is good I like to go outdoors and you can often find me in the outskirts of the city wandering around in nature.
What made you start your company?
Covid! Like me, people are staying home more than ever now. I missed going out for a drink, and saw there were no good solutions available to do wine tasting at home. I want people to have the complete wine tasting experience even when they are at home with no sommelier around. Tasty Grapes comes with food pairing recommendations, history and details of the winery at the back of our box, so to some extent it’s like the sommelier is standing next to you. Everyone can be their own sommelier!
Tell me about your product and brand?
We love wine and the idea of no fuss wine tasting and Tasty Grapes is all about that. Tasty grapes offer various types of wine in tubes in different boxes that have different themes – Red, White, a mix of red and white and there is a chocolate version, so there is something for everyone.
There are so many wineries and types of wine in the world and why limit yourself drinking the same one over and over again. We really want people to explore the world of wine. That’s why all our wine is in tubes- single serving size. If you like them, great! We are happy that we helped you find the right wine for you. If you don’t, now you know and can move on to the next tube!
