Social Entrepreneurship

Throughout my career, I have sought opportunities to harness consumer interest in a way that serves the community. Naturally, people find it gratifying to spend their dollars in a way that helps others. I like to offer ways for them to do that. These are my latest initiatives:


Woman-Owned Wineries (WoW) of Sonoma County


Woman-Owned Wineries (WoW) of Sonoma County is a storytelling and advocacy project celebrating female wine entrepreneurs. I launched this project in winter 2017 to help ensure women in the wine business are seen and heard.

A sirsee is an unexpected gift, in Southern parlance. I created this project to help share the beauty in the world by:

  • crafting a single-vineyard Grenache wine
  • editing a harvest journal featuring 30+ talented artists, writers, and chefs
  • offering both items to raise funds and awareness
