We had the good fortune of connecting with Rebekah Wineburg and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rebekah, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I had been working as a winemaker for 15 years before I founded Post & Vine Wines, making wine for others and helping them fulfill their dreams. I decided to start my own wine label, Post & Vine Wines, because I wanted to have the freedom to explore vineyards and varieties that interested me. Post & Vine Wines has allowed me to stretch my creative muscles and highlight heritage vineyards that are home to lesser known grape varieties like Carignane. Being a business owner has taught me so much more than I expected it would – from label design and marketing, to understanding of the financial and administrative aspects of running a winery. But the most fulfilling part has been the connections I have made along the way with my customers. As a Winemaker/Owner, my wine is an extension of my aesthetic and seeing that resonate with others is incredibly gratifying.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Post & Vine Wines was founded in 2012 with a desire to produce wines that reflect a sense of place, and the care and pride that goes into the vineyards and wine making. We focus on small historical vineyards that have been managed sustainably by committed stewards. Every wine we make tells the story of the rich heritage of California winemaking and helps sustain these century old vineyards, keeping them from being ripped out and replanted to more “modern” varieties. Introducing consumers to varieties and regions they may not already be familiar to them can be a challenge, but sharing our love of these vineyards and seeing the delight on our customers face when they taste our wines makes all the hard work worth it. If there is one thing we want Post & Vine Wines to do, it is to teach people that you do not have to pay $50 or more to find a wine that authentically speaks of place, is delicious to drink young, and is also age-able.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to send a shoutout to my husband who has encouraged my to pursue my passion and to grow Post & Vine Wines,
