The wine VEIL® Story

It happened one late summer evening in Denver as a group of friends were sitting in the yard enjoying a beautiful Sonoma Pino Noir. Two of the friends, who were visiting from the Sonoma wine region, placed plastic sandwich bags upside down over their wine glasses. Kelly asked, “What the heck?” The response:  “We always do this to keep bugs out of our glass. Fruit flies are everywhere.” Kelly thought, “Hmmm — legitimate problem with an awkward solution.” Hence, wine VEIL® was born in September of 2010.

The wine VEIL® is a new product designed by Kelly Egan with a main function of protecting open and poured wine from insects and other flying objects such as leaves or dirt. The form of the wine VEIL® is soft and simple as it is made from a 5″ x 5″ finished piece of organza and is weighted on each corner with beautiful silver charms. The effect is a beautiful sheer drape or VEIL over a wine glass, decanter or bottle.

Outside dining and socializing often includes wine. As glasses are at rest, they are the perfect target and sugar source for a variety of insects. Fruit flies, gnats and wasps enjoy a dip in a wine glass when afforded the opportunity. Wine drinkers are usually not in favor of unwanted bugs floating in their precious wine! Enter the wine VEIL® — a beautiful and sheer piece of fabric with stylishly weighted corners — the perfect solution!  Bugs stay out and the wine can breathe. The wine VEIL® also enhances the look of the wine glass at rest.

Kelly Egan is the inventor and founding partner of Wine VEIL, LLC. Her vision is simple:  protect the wine without swatting or spraying the bugs away,  and enhance the beauty of the wine in a glass while allowing the wine to breathe. As an entrepreneur and creative business leader, Kelly has successfully jump started multiple ventures and wine VEIL® is her latest creation.
