Becky Suriano’s Wine Me?: Don’t Just Drink, Drink in Style
Wine Me? (winemecompany.com) is a hand-painted glassware company formed in October, 2010 by artist and wine enthusiast, Becky Suriano. By combining Becky’s two favorite passions, painting and wine, Wine Me? offers usable custom art-pieces that are beautiful, stylish, and highly collectible.
Becky enjoyed attending wine festivals whenever possible and was always looking for a special wine glass to reflect her personal style while sampling. After failing to find anything unique or interesting enough for her tastes, she decided to take matters into her own hands and hand-paint her own glass. Her one-of-a-kind creation got so much attention she realized she was onto something special, an underserved niche market whose demand she could satisfy. Wine Me? was born. Wine Me?’s motto: Don’t just drink, drink in style”.
Original Wine Me? designs are inspired by nature, fashion, music, pop-culture and fine arts.

These beautiful art pieces make an exciting fashion statement, appealing to her customers’ sense of personal style and commemorating special moments.
