The Line Up:
“Megan is one of my wine heroes. She has amazing technical knowledge, makes beautiful wines, and, as a community leader, has found a great way to give back. 100% of the proceeds from wine sold under husband Ryan and her UPHOLD label are donated to various nonprofits.” - Sally Kim, DRG Wine Director
“Lynn is another one of my role models. She does it all, and makes it look like a breeze! Lynn is the backbone for her husband, Kenny Likitprakong’s, many labels, including Hobo Wine, Folk Machine, and Ghostwriter. However, Edith & Ida is her baby, dedicated to her two babies (little girls now.)” - Sally Kim, DRG Wine Director
“Jenn is a winemaker to watch. She’s only into her second vintage at Raft Wines, but has a natural skill at making pretty, approachable, and balanced wines.” - Sally Kim, DRG Wine Director
“Sam is another natural talent. She switched careers from international tax consulting to wine a decade ago and has been an innovative trendsetter in the wine world ever since. Sam was the first in California to make Nouveau, which has since become a cult category. She was also one of the first in the state to make 100% Pinot Meuiner. She created her Mommenpop label for delicious and fun vermouths.” - Sally Kim, DRG Wine Director
