The winemakers at Vin Bon, using juices from international harvests, invite customers into the winemaking process, helping them craft their own vintages without the time-consuming steps of squeezing, straining, and background-checking their own grapes. After helping guests select their juice, the winemakers monitor and blend ingredients in each batch on its journey through fermentation and filtration. In addition to their winemaking services, Vin Bon sources premium juices and grapes, such as cabernet sauvignon and riesling.

Silent Sports’ staff of cycling enthusiasts services bikes with expert repairs and an extensive stock of components and accessories. During the minor tune-up, an experienced mechanic trues wheels, inspects brakes, and cross-examines gears before a jury of peer crankshafts. Mechanics then either affirm each bike is in proper working order or alert owners of any needed repairs along with supplying an estimate should cyclists schedule any further service. Silent Sports liberates its staff from commission pay, meaning pedallers need not worry about superfluous repairs such as installing a soft-serve ice-cream dispenser beneath the seat.
