Expand San Antonio’s Wine Culture by Turning Vinously Speaking Wine Shop
into the Best Lil’ Wine Bar in Town!
We are launching a crowd-funding campaign to raise the funds necessary for us to turn our dream into a reality! The campaign will expand the business by allowing us to offer wines by the glass and provide a venue for private events and education. The timing is right, as our vibrant city continues to grow – we see great opportunity for the wine industry, and by donating, you can be a part of the movement. By reaching our funding goal, we can elevate the wine experience for our clients.

Vinously Speaking began as a wine blog in March of 2009 as a way for its founder, Veronique Cecilia Barretto, to document her experience in her Masters in Wine Business studies at The Burgundy School of Business in Dijon, France. After her studies she returned to her hometown of San Antonio, TX in early 2011 with the intention to grow Vinously Speaking into something more. She called on her good friend and partner in wine, Melissa Unsell, and after a wine-filled, brainstorming lunch in early April 2011 a partnership was formed and an amazing vinous addition to Vinously Speaking took place. The duo hit the ground running, swirling up San Antonio’s wine culture one glass of wine at a time. At the end of 2011, the partnership took on an official form with the creation of Vinously Speaking, LLC and in April of 2012 the duo purchased a boutique wine shop in San Antonio and offering an eclectic selection of wines from small production vineyards around the world.
