CO-FOUNDER

I believe good product design stretches beyond the marriage of design and functionality. It's also about the way a product makes you feel when you use it. Materials, weight, tactile feel and sound come together in APÉRO to create a wine opening experience that is extremely satisfying.

Guillaume Acier

CO-FOUNDER

Being from France, wine has always been part of my life. The name APÉRO actually comes from the French word "aperitif", which is a gathering of friends and family for drinks and appetizers - it is always a good time. That is why it was perfect for our product to be named after this.
