About Us - the VineyardFresh Story

The Origin of VineyardFresh

You've heard about ideas that were hatched from scratch and written on the back of a napkin. Well this is one is one of them. The original founder of VineyardFresh was David Hall. Dave's background was in the aerosol business and he used his knowledge and expertise in the industrial world flow into an exciting consumer application.

A graduate of Michigan State University, Dave observed the frequent problem experienced by so many people of wine going bad due to oxidation. He saw and was served bad tasting wine at restaurants - an all too frequent occurrence. And, at home, he had the same experience with wine taste going bad. He went to work and with his experience with aerosols and gases, he recognized the ideal solution - 100% argon gas. VineyardFresh was born in 1999.

The Progression of VineyardFresh Wine Preserver

The original VineyardFresh canister was similar shaped to what it is today. It was a recyclable aluminum canister, but had an awkward nozzle and straw attachment to get VineyardFresh into the open bottle of wine. Today, the wasp spray looking straw is long gone. It was replaced with a newer, contemporary actuator and improved can graphics that depict how to use VineyardFresh. In addition, a second / larger size can was designed and manufactured for institutions and restaurants. The larger can became a very cost effective product for use in restaurants or anywhere wine by the glass is served.
