“As a conceptual designer, I believe in ‘The art of conversation’, I believe in great ideas and creating unique valuable things that have never before existed. My intention is to translate these ideas into phenomenal, funny, (and edible) conversation pieces to easily share and make memories together. That’s what life is all about.”

About The Real Wine Gum – Wine as Art!
In socializing with people for years, I saw how a bottle (of wine) could help us to meet face-to-face and have real conversations. Magic happens when we slow down to enjoy a drink and to truly connect with those around us.

The Real Wine Gum was designed to capture that in an edible form. We partnered with a Michelin star chef and a food research institute to make this a reality. The result is a vegetarian, non-alcoholic luxury treat; thus leaving no excuse for anyone to try one. Now you can enjoy the sensations of wine without drinking it.

“It’s not about the candy, it’s about the conversation. Wine brings people together”
