What does Considered Luxury mean to you? Luxury is often thought of as something to do with a high price tag. But for me, luxury means something very different. True luxury is timeless and transcends past, present and future. It is something made from the finest, sustainable materials, shaped by the skilled and respected hands of artisans, and carries the value of their craft. True luxury stands apart from a world of transience and trend because it is always appreciated for its inherent quality. At Vintner’s Daughter we strive every day to live up to this definition of luxury that stands the test of time.
