Generations Wine and Martini Bar in Loveland, Colo., is a place geared toward women who make the going-out decisions. Its genesis was a woman who made her own decisions. Walk through the doors of Generations Wine and Martini Bar in Loveland, Colo., and you’re likely to find Owner Erin Borsdorf behind the bar mixing martinis or in the kitchen helping with trademark dishes like the Bacon-Wrapped Dates.

Breathing new life into vintage barn wood one board at a time and creating a unique “keeper of the wine” is the goal of designer/creator Lisa Jacuzzo. Her rustic wine bottle holders, known as Wine Dwellers, are custom engraved and beautifully designed from reclaimed, vintage barn wood and perfectly balance a single bottle of wine. She believes she’s created a unique way to display your favorite bottle of wine, as it appears to magically float in place (her favorite is a merlot paired with a nice filet mignon).

Sometimes in life, we require a therapist; physical therapists, group therapists, individual therapists or marriage therapists. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we recommend that lovers spend money at the The Chocolate Therapist which just may reduce the need for the aforementioned therapists! 

Robyn Spindler is propelling her passion and talent into a career in the retail side of the wine industry. She’s taken ordinary wine glasses, added her whimsical character, Robyn with a ~”Y,” and created a message she thinks women can relate to. Spindler’s tagline, “Do you know how expensive it is to be me?!” is a line Robyn pulled from her own life, representing women who feel “she’s special in the comfort of her own reality and just as deserving of all of life’s extras."

The world of wine has a reputation for being pretentious, and the variables that make it a complex creation can pose an intimidating barrier to those who perhaps consider themselves less studious, but like to drink it nevertheless. It’s a predicament Wine Channel TV Founder Jess Altieri has set out to address. A Certified Sommelier and TV personality, she’s on a mission to make wine sensible, understandable and fun for the masses.

Here is a little language lesson. The Italian verb, volere, means to wish, expect, need and require. That definition should be in Webster’s under “purse”! What better gift to give the lovely lady in one’s life...especially when it's filled with wine. Natalie Myers (aka Mrs. Poet) reviews the Volére wine purse just in time for the holidays.
