Beau Satchelle Bespoke Wine Case Gift Set –

Finally, we would like to offer our own unique gift for the wine lover in your life.  A wine case that stores the essentials for a lovely evening of wine.  We layered the interior with custom felt padding and covered it with soft Italian lambskin leather in taupe; for additional protection and aesthetics. The rich look of the exterior is compliments to the fine leather made of French Calfskin in burgundy. 

 A bespoke wine gift box set has to have certain accessories. This particular design includes a premium wing corkscrew wine bottle opener which is joined to the interior with the same French Calf Skin and hardware. With a subtle hat tip to the carpentry of the box, a smaller wooden box painted intentionally with an explosion of burgundy color to highlight the other compartment of accessories. This includes a foil cutter and a stainless steel vacu-stopper to remove the air and help preserve the wine after it’s opened. This accessories storage box is also fitted with the same leather strap and hardware.

We customize to the client’s desires and are at the ready to have our master artisan consult to create your own case that can be offered in several types of leathers or exotic skins, an array of colors and a selection of adornments.  Custom costs begin at $3225.00   -AJ
