So what if Valentine’s Day is over?

It’s March and the holidays, including Valentine’s Day, are behind us. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still look for perfect gifts for other occasions for the wine drinker(s) in your life.

We recently discovered True Fabrications, which offers a large variety of wine accessories and gifts. And while I don’t often write about wine products, this is an exception because True Fabrications, located in Seattle, has close ties to the Washington state wine industry.

In the name of full disclosure, the company sent me samples to check out. I am under no obligation to write about them. But some of these gifts are so fantastic, I had to tell you about them!

My favorite is a wine box that I’ve coveted since I saw it a couple of years ago at Vino Bello in Burien.

WineBoxes_HeaderCalled a “Treasure Chest Double Wine Box,” this distinct box with brass accents keeps two bottles secure with faux leather straps. It really accents the wine-drinking area of our house and adds an old-world charm to our collection. And it’s a reasonably priced $19.89. The wine box also comes in single-bottle and six-bottle versions, in addition to a slightly different box with a treasure map cover.

Other True Fabrications items for wine enthusiasts include a vacuum pump wine preserver, a dual-blade foil cutter, wine glass charms, wine aerators, colorful wine bags and totes, cork screws and much more. I could spend hours looking at many cool items – hundreds of them – on the True Fabrications website.

And the company is Washington born-and-bred. Want to know more? The Puget Sound Business Journal featured the owners in August, 2009: “With absolutely no vintner experience, three college buddies have grown True Fabrications … By last year [2008], sales had increased to $5 million. Its 10,000 customers range from independent wine stores to grocery stores like QFC and Safeway, and even a salon and a sausage company in Oregon.”

So next time you’re looking for a gift for a wine enthusiast – or maybe you simply want a treat for yourself – visit the website for True Fabrications.

Cheers!
