As a certified engraver, Christopher Grunch of Rineyville has done work for the likes of Nordstrom, Macy’s, Dillard’s, Ralph Lauren and Four Roses Bourbon.
The nature of the business, he said, requires him to be part of some special moments, such as when he engraves bottles of wine for anniversaries.
“I’ve had people cry on me and want to hug me,” Grunch said. “That’s fine. They can hug me.”
Sometimes, though, the special moments are unexpected.
