There’s a new boutique and gift shop that opened its doors in Naples. Nicole Smith-Angelo, owner of Life of Vino created a new specialty boutique and gift shop for all wine lovers in Southwest Florida. Life of Vino officially opened its doors for business on Friday, March 20, 2015 in downtown Naples.
“Most wine accessories are not sold at wine stores. The accessory is an afterthought. I wanted to create a wine boutique that focused on the accessories & necessities of wine enjoyment,” said Smith-Angelo.
The grand opening offered a private shopping atmosphere, door prizes, complimentary Valley Central, Chilean white wine (Santiago Station Sauvignon Blanc) paired with a pleasurable cheese platter prepared by Sage Events and Catering.
It’s no secret for those close to Ms. Angelo that she has always been a lover of all things wine, when the opportunity presented itself to open a wine boutique and gift shop she had her mind made up that she would be focusing on hand selected pieces, vintage pieces, and items that her customers would actually enjoy.
Offering hand-painted wine glasses, custom wine racks, vintage decanters, vintage wine chillers, wine glass shades, large wine to go cups, wine aerators from Napa Valley, slate stainless steel wine glasses for wine lovers who prefers chilled wine, and more specialized limited quality merchandise that is not found at large retailers.
Nicole Smith-Angelo has lived in Naples, Florida for 12 years striving in Community Outreach, PR Consultant & Event Planner. She is an active baseball mom who has donated her services to Love That Dress, NAACP, Gulf Coast Little League, Naples International Film Festival, and as of recently the Children’s Golisano Museum.
Life Of Vino current store hours are Thursday and Fridays with private shopping and group parties available by appointment. All new and current inventories or giveaways will be posted daily on the Life of Vino website and social media pages.
