This is something we are really excited to offer! Our Patron of the Arts backers have the unique opportunity to receive a customized piece of art - inspired by you, designed by us. We will make two copies: One for your walls, and one for ours. Your work will be proudly displayed on our walls for two years! Sizes range from 4" x 4" to 4' x 4' - so if you're looking for something to finally fill that empty wall space, keep this in mind.

THE BIG PICTURE: What is Turncoat Wine Co.? Our mission is simple: To build our own DIY Winetopia- an interactive gallery and bar without snobbery or pretense, that will invite people from around the world and down the street to fall in love with wine.
At Turncoat we will start the conversation about wine all over again.
WHO IS BEHIND THE CURTAIN? Turncoat is the most recent project of Proof Wine Collective, a small creative studio in San Luis Obispo, CA . Proof’s Founder and Creative Director is Josh McFadden, a 31 yr. old college drop-out, sommelier, and self-taught entrepreneur who has spent over ten years mastering ins and outs of the wine industry as a wine buyer, wine shop clerk, cellar rat, harvest worker, cook, server, and wine label designer. And now he’s ready to catapult Proof into Turncoat Wine Co.
WHERE WILL TURNCOAT BE LOCATED? Turncoat Wine Co. will be located in the center of the rapidly growing wine region that is the Central Coast of California. In addition to being a wine bar, the 4000 sq. ft. space is a full-service restaurant, lounge, wine shop (500 + local and international wines), playroom for tastings and pairings, an event destination and a retail space. We will open in the Spring of 2013.
WHY DO WE NEED YOUR MONEY? We are a small outfit with big dreams. The $25,000 we are asking for will help us cover the costs of: installing a custom bar, paint, hiring electricians and plumbers, fixing the concrete floors, building lighting fixtures, dishwasher, building custom furniture pieces, gas stove-top, prep refrigerators, oven, dishes, glasses, etc...
“SO WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?” YOU ASK: What you can get in return is a chance to own our newest art prints (available exclusively on Kickstarter!!), awesome t-shirts, and a custom art piece for your home that we will also feature in Turncoat itself (see our "Patron of the Arts" example and information below).
In backing our Kickstarter, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting passionate creatives with a nose for both wine and design and enabling us to continue to do what we do best---> making things as awesome as we can! Many thanks to all who have supported us and we look forward to seeing you at Turncoat Wine Co.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The most serious challenges and risks for us with Turncoat lay in the myriad of city, county, state, and interstate agencies we will have to weave through, and get approval from, in order to make our space (Retail-shop/Restaurant/Wine-Bar/Living-gallery) a reality. We will have to jump through a lot of people's hoops-- Everything from the Health Dept. to California’s Alcoholic Beverage Control to the City planning office; we’ll have to go through it all, mostly fees and paperwork, but sometimes they will require us to make significant changes to our vision. Despite being creatives, with our heads in the clouds, we do understand structure and the need to play well with others, and we look forward to creating a space that can be fully embraced by the community at large. We have been blessed to be working with an incredibly resourceful and experienced contractor, who has played a go-between with us and the city planning office. Without such assistance, Turncoat would never be at the stage it is right now.
We have gone to great lengths to make sure that every aspect of the backer rewards stays on schedule. First batch prints and t-shirts will be delivered to backers during the second and third week of December. Just in time for the holidays!
