Thanks to the generosity of fellow Australians, I was given the chance to start again, and so I made it my mission to pay forward the help that I received.
I decided to begin a wine company and give back half of my profits.. and my customers got to choose who it went to.
My goal was simple: to reward the supporters of good causes with good wines, and I would do this by tapping into boutique parcels too small to be of interest to the large online wine companies.
While it is amazing the hands that life can deal us, it is even more amazing the goodwill that exists within us all.
I never imagined that ten years down the track this little business would have donated nearly half a million dollars to charity and the simple truth is, it only happened because people like you chose to help me when I needed it most. Thank you.
