BEHIND THE BRAND
Minnesota -> California -> Minnesota

Hello! I'm Ali, TVR's founder & culture curator (fancy title, but casual gal). My sweet husband Drew and I are adventure-craving Minnesotans who traveled West for 5 years and experienced the sunshine, beauty, and amazing wine scene in Santa Barbara, California. (We actually lived in the COOLEST, little beach town, Carpinteria - go check it out next time you're in the area!) When we first moved to Cali in 2013 I didn't even LIKE wine! Can you believe it?? Now I'm IN LOVE; with the culture, the human connection and story inside every bottle; and of course the never-ending education. I'll be a proud wine student for life! We wanted to bring a slice of that lifestyle and culture back to our home state, so The Vine Room was born. Please stop in and say hi! I can't wait to meet you :)
