My name is Patrick, and I'm considered to be the face of Winepine. I'm the guy who answers the phone and does the general marketing. I wear a lot of hats, but I love to do it. Everyday I hop onto my long-back and comfy office chair (I'm pretty tall), and I place my well worn keyboard onto my lap. I kick my feet up onto one of those vintage wooden foot rests with a multi-color fabric top cover that flips up to double as a small storage opening. I got a great deal for it at this little auction house in upstate NY. My wife keeps her sewing tools in there, and occasionally pulls me out of my chair so she can take some of her spools out. I do most of my work from a home office, as I have a comfortable set-up that serves me well. I have one of those cool swivel arms attached to my LCD screen that swings the screen right in front of me as I sit beside my desk instead of right in front of it. I worked in a suit and tie for many years and enjoy the fact that I don't sit at a formal desk anymore, and can wear relaxed casual attire with the occasional flip-flops to the "office".
I almost always start the day off with getting back to e-mails that came in at night, and send over the orders that came in for processing. I'm pretty serious about it, and even when I have a chance to go on vacation, my trusty iPhone is always in tow and ready to get back to e-mails and answer calls. I work 7 days a week but don't consider it a job at all. It's my passion and a reflection of who I am. I love when someone calls me the wine crate guy, and the 7 employees that work with me are nearly as committed. We do work closely with each other, and share the good times and the bad. Our priority is you the customer and client. It deeply pains us when we make the occasional shipping error, and we get a bit stressed out because of it. Our goal is to make sure your happy, and it's largely a source of pride in our work.
Every crate we offer is prepared and inspected by hand. We don't mass produce or outsource to China. We work with local suppliers and have a rigorous "cottage-industry" kind of quality control standards.
When you buy something from Winepine, your not just buying a wine crate or panel. You making a fun and unique purchase for yourself, while simultaneously making an investment in a group of people that will give you our finest work each and every time you order.
