Winemakers are, of course, passionate about the grapes they so lovingly cultivate on the vine. That natural pride in creative artistry may be seen as Act One in the theatre of wine. But creativity carries over into the final Act too.  It can often be much in evidence, as the Sommelier plays his or her part in the last scene of the drama; frequently with a flourish and improvisation that deserves the award of an Oscar in its own right!
But just as the Viticulturist in the pursuit of artistic excellence must work within the limits of the harvest, so too Sommeliers must work within the limits of available tools of the trade, tools that can make, or mar, their performance in the drama.
Enter The Waiter’s Friend Company®. Established in 1990 with the sole mission of eliminating ‘tatty’ tools through innovation and freshly inspired re-design; because “great wines deserve accessorising.”
Looking at all aspects of wine service, Waiter’s Friend set out to develop tools and accessories that would not only work effortlessly but would also reflect the best in contemporary design technology. The results have won them design awards for innovation as well as the hard-earned plaudits of wineries, producers, distributors, Sommeliers, retailers and consumers around the globe.
With a cast of clever corkscrews, scintillating glassware, cool ice buckets, peachy tasting equipment and wonderous wine preservation systems, Waiter’s Friend accessories could be out performing for your brand too.
