Volume2: The Patriot Series and PeaceBuilders

We are excited to release our 2nd volume of FlyWine teaming with Garrett Ahnfeldt and Roots of Peace: Become a Peacebuilder Today!

What makes this DeMassive?

Volume 1 was All About Me. Volume 2 is a Gift Back to You!

(stay tuned for some awesome video!)

 

The people have spoken!

With this new volume come several enhancements to the FlyWine portfolio. Ongoing, the annual “Volume” release will have unique as well as static “Editions”: a Napa Cabernet, a White Wine du jour, and a “Wild Card” that I work on specially with the collaborating Vintner that can be anything our hearts desire!  All of the wines will be included in the fundraising for a single charity!

Travelers will now be branded with the tasteful logo, to indicate the quality and sophistication one would expect from FlyWine. The intent is to reduce confusion between FlyWine Editions and the On the Fly Custom and TravelerNetwork releases. Ongoing, tasteful is available in retail shops, restaurants and hotels on wine lists and in wholesale portfolios.  Relax, Unwind, and may there always be something tasteful in your glass!

Vintner CoHort: GarrettAhnfeldt

Garrett Ahnfeldt was raised among the vines of Napa Valley. At the tender age of seven he was driving tractors and developing a love for farming. His family moved to Napa Valley in 1985 where his parents started out by selling their world class wine grapes to prestigious Napa wineries for years before creating their own.  Garrett’s passion for farming and growing award winning grapes returned with a vengeance, and he was soon farming for his family and several of his father’s friends. He started a vineyard management company which led to the management of over 350 acres, including both wineries and private growers.

“G”currently makes wine at G Wine Cellars in Napa, make an appointment to visit him at the Wine Thief, the one of a kind Collaborative Tasting Room by Oxbow.
