I used to own a kayak outfitting company through the 90’s and 2000’s. I sold it in 2005 at the same time my wife’s (Cate Thero) company was selling, so we had a good amount of money and thought that we were going to be one of those lucky people who get to retire early. Read more>>

Gisela Claassen

I started making wine as a hobby in 2007; all of my friends were making beer, but I like wine better so investigated how to go about making wine. I thought I would have to drive around Temecula to try to purchase grapes, but discovered wine kits – stabilized concentrated juice with all of the other needed ingredients. With wine kits you can make wine any time of year, and almost any varietal from anywhere in the world. Read more>>
