Vine.ly Magazine is an innovative collective of musicians, distillers, writers, winemakers, artists, and anyone else bound by their curiosity and desire to make the world a better place.
We celebrate the new. We appreciate the steps that brought us here, but keep moving forward.
We celebrate music, wine and spirits – and the places where they meet.
Music, wine, spirits – they are inseparable. Where one goes, the others follow, dancing to the same tune that calls us all.
Every note you hear in your ear is a taste waiting to touch your lips. Whether the music makes you get up, get down, get hyped, change the world, or just chill until the next episode – there’s a flavor note for that.
Just try to imagine an era of people without music in their minds and a glass in their hands.
If you can’t – we’re calling you.
We are creating a community. A real community. One that only comes from true individuality – a group of single, defined pieces giving form to the movement as a whole.
And no matter who we are, we are travelers. Physical and digital nomads in the ever expanding universe. We are carving and connecting our culture, we are both creator and creation, we empower the same community that empowers us. We see the direct impact our actions have on our world and strive to take the best road forward. This is what Vine.ly Magazine is all about.
If you are with us, we have one common goal: to stay authentic – and feel good doing so. And to feel good, you have to do good. One can’t live without the other.
So we reach our goals by reaching out, by raising each other up. We share stories, journeys, hardships, and triumphs. We shine in our joys and excitements. We own up to our pains and failures.
We greet the duality of life with open arms. In a world of pretense and inhibition, we dare to be honest and vulnerable, to embody our own reality, tear through layers of social niceties, rip the masks from our faces and stand – raw and real in front of the world.
And we are rewarded, knowing we are not alone. That if only for a moment in time, if only for this moment, we are seen for who we truly are.
This is the next step forward.
Will you take it with us?

July 25 • Music
Jim Morrison and The Doors remain one of the most enduring enigmas of American Rock N’ Roll. The band that met in film school and called the streets of Venice their home, opened “the doors” to a psychedelic Rock N’ Roll discography that has planted and blossomed millions of fans around the world. And yet, there is still so much that has been overlooked, especially for what the city of Los Angeles meant for Jim Morrison.

It’s always a race against the heat in the West. Hell, there’s a score of difference races around here. There’s a race to the riches and a race to the hills where the riches lay. There’s a race to food and shelter and the means in which a man might make to get them. There’s a race to the women and to the brothels and saloons where you can find them at. I don’t look for my women in those places but I often find myself in them for other races. Mine is a race to whiskey. It’s only a matter of time before I find myself in one today.

August 12 • Coffee Producers
The Stumptown coffee buyers are called the Green Team members. These people sit down around a
campfire or in the home of a producer and talk about the year’s crop. They have met with these
producers many times because they have slowly been working on building long-lasting relationships.
