If you missed our virtual tasting with Monte Rosso, learn more about the wines here!

Brenae's career in agriculture stemmed directly from hours of enjoyment planting flowers and picking weeds alongside her grandmother. She soon began raising pigs and joined Future Farmers of America (FFA).

By 2015, Brenae was named Ranch Manager for Monte Rosso Vineyard, an iconic property where grapes are grown for the likes of Mount Peak Winery. “When I started, it was intimidating. Here I am this 24-year-old coming in to manage Monte Rosso, a world-renowned vineyard and one of the oldest in the state. It’s difficult and complex but I love it,” she said.

LOVE FROM OUR READERS

It is incredibly moving to receive random notes of love! Below is from a fellow reader of Searching for Cloves & Lilies:

"Your book has blown me away. It is magnificent.. from the soul of you.. so deep and un self conscious. I got it this afternoon and read it from cover to cover. I need a second round to fully absorb the intensity. Mighty powerful! Thanks for printing and making available... not to mention creating!" Fondly, Les

Whatever the case is, you've come to the right place. Just as Shall We Wine does in-person experiences, we also plan experiences for corporate virtual events. We work with our corporate clients to create wine and spirit-focused experiences!
