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 is a storytelling and advocacy project elevating female wine entrepreneurs. I began this project in winter 2017 to help ensure women in the wine business are seen and heard. We are currently crowdfunding to launch a consumer wine club.
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
