Keep it natural, baby.
“Let’s take a little Field Trip together to our friend Matthew Rorick’s vineyard! This half Picpoul, half Chardonnay, super limited (100 cases) fun happy wine is what we think of when we think of sunshine and oysters. You don’t even need a permission slip to enjoy this outing.” -Vending Machine Wines
Industry veterans Monica Bourgeois and Neil Gernon spotted a gap in the market for accessible wines with engaging packaging & fine fruit inside and they’ve shot that gap like Barry Sanders in a jetpack . The wines are complex and rich with a lot of great weight and texture. These are the kinds of wines you reserve for a great dinner and labels you save for display or crafting projects.
Monica Bourgeois and Neil Gernon originally from Lousiana and living in New Orleans love wine. They love wine so much they spent several years working in restaurants, a few more years running bottle shops, many hours getting certified by the WSET, and the most years working for a small distributor. Getting to know the wine world inside and out, they decided there was something missing in the market - special blends, artistic and fun packaging and great juice at reasonable prices. They were fortunate enough to distribute White Rock Vineyards wines and Christopher co-owner/winemaker was making incredible, restrained, elegant wines in Napa. Somehow, someway, they convinced him to make wines for them and four years later, they are well on their way to their happily ever after!
