When The Vineyard's wine curators determine whether a bottle is eligible to join the company's collection, they weigh three factors: quality, origin, and value. During tasting events and weekday meals, they uncork bottles and suss out age, flavor profile, and suitability for food pairings. When considering origin, The Vineyard's wine connoisseurs seek out family wineries, which generally devote more personal attention and goodnight kisses to their grapes. Additionally, family wineries tend to operate with lower costs, thereby fulfilling The Vineyard's third pillar, value.

Three years of testing have resulted in an inventory of superior bulbs designed for spaces ranging from kitchens and ceiling fans to sparkling chandeliers. In addition to saving energy, "LEDs are certainly more attractive than the curly CFLs," one of The LED Diet's clients told the Washington Post.
