Monica Bourgeois (me) and Neil Gernon (my hubby) love wine. We love wine so much we spent several years working in restaurants, a few more years running bottle shops, many hours getting certified by the WSET, and the most years working for a small distributor. Getting to know the wine world inside and out, we decided there was something missing in the market - special blends, artistic and fun packaging and great juice at reasonable prices. We were fortunate enough to distribute White Rock Vineyards wines and Christopher was making incredible, restrained, elegant wines in Napa. Somehow, someway, we convinced him to make wines for us and four years later, we are well on our way to our happily ever after!
Special Thanks to:
The winemaking dynamic duo that is Sarah and Christopher Vandendriessche, who agreed to make our dream come true over bellini's and sabered bottles of bubbles. Christopher and his family make amazing estate wines at White Rock Vineyards. To learn more about his wines, visit http://whiterockvineyards.com.
Speaking of super spouses, many thanks to Louisiana native and Chicago based artist Grant Schexnider for allowing us to use his artwork as our labels and to his wife Laura Gernon for taking his images and some words and putting together a package worthy of the juice inside.
