Winestains – small business collaboration

On the 24th of May, after a few months of planning, we spent the day with 5 local businesses with the aim of working together to create something a little bit different.

We truly believe in the power of collaboration and we wanted to see what we could achieve when working with like-minded businesses. It’s a great way to invigorate during the winter months and come up with new ideas. Sometimes working in small-business you don’t get to work with too many other people (besides yourself!) so this was a welcomed change for us.

We all have unique skill-sets which made this project even more interesting to put together.

The businesses involved include Barossa Styling & Events, Kingsford Homestead, Matthew Dwyer Studio, Viva the flower store, Zoe Campbell Photography & Design & ourselves.

I’ve wanted to put something like this together for a while now. I love the idea of working with like-minded entrepreneurs and it was a great way to get to work with these businesses when we usually wouldn’t get the chance. It’s also a great way to expose what amazing talent we have in our own back yard.
It was also a great opportunity to highlight our region and showcase this in a visual way.
A special thanks to Purple Hands Wines for supplying the table wine – check these guys out if you haven’t already!

Take a little look into our world

Earlier this year we decided to shoot some footage to help give our customers a better understanding of who we are. This is just a little snippet from the full length film (still to come). We hope you enjoy.

The Poor Girls Pantry

Earlier this year I went on a trip to Byron Bay to visit a friend. On my visit, I stumbled upon this amazing duo – Elise & Sarah Mae from The Poor Girls Pantry.

Their mantra; Two Girls, One Pantry, No money.

Ideas & recipes showing you how to eat healthily on a budget.

Their recipes are delicious and most of all inspiring.

We sent them one of our fruit bowls to have a play with. Below is what they came up with.

We hope you enjoy this little bit of inspiration, and different ways you can use this gorgeous design – and maybe a sneaky recipe or two.

Thanks Elise & Sarah Mae for your lovely work.

Coach House Design Launch

We’re so excited to launch our Coach House Design series.

We had a lot of fun developing this particular range. Zoe Campbell Photography & Design really helped us capture what this range was all about with her beautiful photography.

We felt that we needed to develop a range that didn’t shout ‘recycled wine barrel’. As much as we love what we can create with our recycled wine barrels, we wanted to develop a range that experimented with sleek curves, textures and create a really modern feel.

We hope you like what we’ve created.
