The visionary in this story is owner Cynthia Bohn, who as a 30-year veteran of IBM, had the opportunity to travel the world and sample many wonderful cuisines and wines. 


As the story goes, Cynthia was examining the business case studies of wine giants Mondavi and Gallo as part of continuing business education curriculum at Harvard University. As she researched her mind gave way to thoughts of her own vineyard and winery in Kentucky which opened in 1998.
