Kate Hudson, the American actress, said,“Every bottle has a story, and when you sit down and drink it, you feel connected to that story.”

Every bottle I sampled, every woman I met had a story to tell. I’m sharing their stories with you in hopes of inspiring you to visit their wineries in Livermore Valley, California.

Interview with Darcie Kent, owner at Darcie Kent Vineyards and Almost Famous Wine Company

I love doing this with my daughters. My oldest, Kailyn, works with us on marketing, developing labels with me, marketing our brands.

What’s exciting about being a  woman in the wine industry?

My great-great-grandfather came over from Switzerland with his wife, they were both artists and vintners, so I’m doing the same.

When did you become interested in winemaking?

I do all the labels. The labels for Darcie Kent are all art done by me.

What makes your vineyard stand out from all the others?

How much love goes into it and how much effort. We all put love, effort, and caring into every bottle that goes out there.
