I was pretty stoked when I saw Mayor Greg Fischer post a pic visiting new small business Vines & Canines on Frankfort Avenue. The idea of bringing two great things together, wine and animals, just seemed too good to be true. Was I going to get Rick Rolled when I clicked on their website? Look what I discovered:
The idea behind the shop from owner Marc DeMichele (pictured above with his mama):
Vine & Canines (was) developed from my personal love for my dog, and for fine wine, as well as my desire to unite everyone who shares these passions. This idea grew out of an evening of pulling corks with a dear friend along with our dogs and the realization that our experience was enriched by our four-legged pals. I not only want to provide a unique line of products for lovers of dogs and wine, but also create events where people with similar interests could meet and celebrate this affinity we all share.
What a unique concept! Shake your tail on over to Vines & Canines and support local business owners. Need some more feel-goodiness? A portion of all of their proceeds go to the Kentucky Humane Society to benefit animals in need. Giddeyup!
