Marleen Teters and Mireille Reuling
We are established at Herengracht 203 Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This canal building has an appropriate ‘wine’ history attached to it. It was build around 1618 for the wine merchant; Wolfert Webber ll. According to an persistent story, Webber Father was an illegitimate son of Willem of Orange, the founder of The Netherlands.
The Real WINE gum originated as part of an Art School experiment.
Mireille Reuling from Amsterdam is a conceptual designer (3D and New Media). In 2012, she developed a 3D art installation: The Wine Xperience. This was an attempt to achieve, without actually drinking the wine," The relaxed feel of the first sip of wine”. The person is undergoing this experience with all senses. Wine remains in the translation of the senses, the main component. The system is a combination of her inspiration: Visual Arts, Theater, Food & Drinks and Entrepreneurship. The real taste of wine in the Real WINE gum is experienced in the taste buds.
Principals of The Wine Xperience are:
1. Her fascination with the authenticity of wine, the traditions that go with it and it has universal relevance.
2. The Art Experiment: Wine 's Art! Where the "matter" of wine was re-examined. The Wine Xperience is a follow up.
