Looking to cash in on the food truck movement, but would rather stick to wine? Here’s some wine-spiration from Indiana.
Vino Mobile Bar, nicknamed “Vinny,” is the brainchild of Carmel resident Jenn Kampmeier, 42, who has started a dozen businesses since she was 7 years old. Her latest endeavor is bringing wine to concerts, parties, weddings and other events.
Carmel “mompreneur” Jenn Kampmeier shows her new mobile wine bar, “Vinny” The Vino Mobile Bar, on a stop at The Urban Chalkboard, Thursday, June 9, 2016. It’s the first mobile wine bar.
It’s not exactly an adult ice-cream truck, but it’s close. The state’s first wine truck is rolling into an event near you, and it even has a name.
Kampmeier, 42, started her first “business” at just 7 years old when she bought a gumball machine from a friend’s dad. Since then, she always has created businesses that parallel what is going on in her life, she said.
“When I was single, I had a singles company. When I had my son, I had the baby expo. As he grew older, we went to the family expo.”
Her latest endeavor is bringing wine to concerts, parties, weddings and other events in Central Indiana.
“I have a 10-year-old, and I like wine,” she said, laughing.
