Other Notes
For years, Zane and Mindy traveled the world perfecting one aspect of the wine business- drinking wine. Then, Covid happened. To a couple of adventurers, quarantine meant that traveling the world would simply have to take place around the dinner table. Creative dinners and blind tastings soon became a crazy idea: to have their own vineyard. Within six months, Zane and Mindy went from an everyday wine-loving couple to owning a vineyard. They have several brands including DEFENDERS (a nod to Zane's military service) and Drunk Penguin. In 2023 they took another leap of faith, starting a wine import business to support other small Argentinian producers. Vinuv celebrates Vin (that’s French for wine) grown and produced in Uco Valley (Vin from Uco Valley = VINUV).
