How We Decided Upon 'Purple Teeth Cellars'

Back in October 2007, we decided to work with Crushpad to create some wine. Since we love fine red wine, it seemed like a great idea. This idea quickly blossomed into the thought that maybe we should make enough to sell for others to enjoy. Thus the conundrum: what do we call this thing?

Well, after several not-so-great ideas, I tried several things with the word Purple in the name. What stood out immediately to both of us was 'Purple Teeth Cellars' because one of us is known to get stained teeth rather quickly. The inkier the wine, the faster the teeth stain. It's nothing to be ashamed of - it just signifies fun times in our lives.

Once we began divulging the name, we got laughs (some as 'lol's) or immediate recognition of the phenomenon, and often both. Almost everyone related immediately that their teeth (or the teeth of a significant other or good friend) also turn purple when drinking wine. We knew we had a hit name. Many people have fun times in their lives involving red wine.

We hope you will join us in this journey.
