Today we’d like to introduce you to Shiloh Caffrey.
Shiloh, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
About 2 years ago, my family of 4 packed up and moved to the tiny town of Montone, Italy to escape the rat race of San Diego. Though I knew this experience would forever change us, I could never have imagined how much. After a few short weeks of living abroad, two things were immediately apparent. First, the European’s fervor and excitement to live in the moment. And second, the surprising abundance of incredible yet inexpensive champagnes and sparkling wines. After soaking up this life in the moment lifestyle and being spoiled with heaps of quality bubbles, I knew there was no going back.
After returning home to Encinitas, CA I found myself in somewhat of a predicament. The bubbles available to us here are essentially all over-priced, mass-produced, label-driven champagnes and sparkling wines . . . and I had to do something about it.
That’s where We Drink Bubbles came in. I quickly put my teaching career on hold to follow my new found dream of sourcing all rare and boutiques sparkling wines and champagnes from around the world, for me as well as all the other bubble lovers out there. The idea behind the Bubbles Club is to bring better bubbles to your doorstep when you want them, as often as you want them. In addition, creating a community of bubble obsessed friends who I can drink with, share my passions, and enjoy life together with.
The company’s motto is “Life’s Worth Celebrating” and better said, “We’re Worth Celebrating.” So if we want to have a glass (or bottle) of bubbles on a Tuesday afternoon then we should, Lord knows I do. I am thrilled to be on this exciting adventure discovering new and incredible bubbles and sharing them with my community.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
So far it has been a relatively smooth road. People are very receptive to trying champagne for free. 😉 It’s definitely not a product that is hard to convince people to like. However, there has been a ton of learning, adapting, and growing as I am a first-time business owner. Though business has been steady and smooth, I am finding my weaknesses and shortcomings in my own ability, and look forward to getting to the place where I can hire someone who specializes in the areas that I fall short.
Please tell us about We Drink Bubbles.
I am an online Champagne and sparkling wine club and retail shop. The club membership is the heart of the company; we send 3 bottles of hard to find, boutique bubbles right to our customer’s doorstep on the months they select. We are basically a connoisseur of curating exceptional bubbles and bringing them direct to consumer.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I would have spent less time, product, and money on large events. I think my resources are best valued in intimate settings, person to person.
