Life event? New wine delivery service has some SASSY vino for that

Nothing says congratulations, I'm sorry or happy birthday, anniversary, etc., like a nice bottle of wine.

But Chipmonkey Wine is a new wine delivery service that has all of these special occasions covered AS WELL AS some very specific, dare I say downright SASSY occasions in your life. Like, you know - a bird attack.

From bird attacks, to toddler trouble, to the normal celebratory events such as buying home or for someones birthday - there's a wine for that.

Founded in Seattle by a certified wine geek, sommelier, former scientist and entrepreneur Kanchan Schindlauer, ChipMonkey was born from personal experience and "a need to send high quality wine an authentic, custom message". Aka the perfect, personalized gift.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Visit to choose from more than 50 categories, ranging from mainstream gifting themes like “Congratulations on the New Home,” to the untraditional (yet crucial) topics like to “Sorry your Teenager is Hormonal”
  2. The next step offers a selection of red, white or sparkling wine, and choice of one, two three or six bottles. Then a curated collection of sommelier-selected wine is paired with each occasion in a clever signature wine-life pairing card.
  3. The card can be customized with your own personalized message and photo, then shipped for delivery within 3-4 days.

“The concept for Chipmonkey Wine came from a real life need to send just the right, personalized gift to a friend suffering a recent loss,” said Schindlauer. “A case of wine seemed impersonal and a greeting card seemed generic, hence the solution was born - a service that pairs really good wine with life.”

Wines include a range of both international and Pacific Northwest varietals, and start at $40. Some of our favorite "occasions" you can order for a friend or family member:

And SO many more.
