Did Ya See?

The WineHive is made with just a single part, that repeats itself to form an infinite array of honeycomb structures.

It can be customized to fit your growing bottle collection.

A WineHive "pack" consists of 12 parts. It can form a 5 bottle wine rack (above), or combine with other packs to form larger configurations. The more packs you have, the more configurations you can make.

A KickStarter exclusive, the Table Runner WineHive (above and below) displays your favorite bottles on your dining table, or starts a mini hive anywhere you choose. Stacks up to 6 bottles.

Whether you just need a WineHive in your kitchen, or one in your bar area too, there's something here for everyone. Here's a basic dimension chart to help determine which size best fits you:

When choosing a WineHive, you should first determine how much space you have available. Then, determine the amount of bottles you need to store. Here are some popular configurations you can make: 

The WineHive has a high-end Satin Aluminum finish, which looks great in today's kitchens, bars, and restaurants. It also packs flat for efficient shipping.

With your help, I can finance the tooling, first production run, and packaging of the WineHive. In return, you can pre-order the WineHive at an exclusive KickStarter discount, as well as help bring an American designed and manufactured product to market. 

Let's do this!

Special thanks to Patrick Calderon with SiMedia. Patrick is a marketing expert that helped tremendously with social media and press releases.

And of course, thanks to EVERYONE who backed the WineHive and helped spread the word. Couldn't have done it without all of you!

Thanks,

John
