Thanks for stopping by! We are so happy to tell you more about PortoVino! Sure we make beautiful purses that pour wine – which is pretty cool dare we say - but our story is so much bigger than that. We’re a small team dedicated to making a difference – in a nutshell PortoVino CARES!
Here is a little more about how we started and who PortoVino is!
Marisa China & Gunnar Hammerbeck - Founders
We started our company in 2001 after an incredible 18 month backpacking journey 'around the world' in search of adventure and new products to start a business. We each grew up in international families and shared a love for traveling and seeing more of this amazing world we live in. We met at an International graduate business school and worked in corporate America for several years before we got married and decided to embark on an adventure through Central America, Southeast Asia, India, Nepal, Africa and Europe. When we returned from our incredible journey, we started a business designing, importing and distributing accessories for the wine & gourmet food industry, along with starting a family! In 2017, we had an idea to make a truly fashionable purse that could discretely store and pour wine from a secret insulated pocket.
We are truly grateful that the PortoVinos were an instant hit with over 200M viral-views to date, and more importantly, we receive such wonderful feedback from our customers. That makes us so happy! We are thrilled to continue to serve you in designing cool new products that allow us to help those less fortunate.
Thank you so much
