Lifting Her Voice
Mary Derby and Judith Shulman
Posted on March 21, 2021
More than two decades ago, Mary Derby was a classically trained opera singer waiting tables while she built an impressive resume of performances. She worked in acclaimed restaurants where a love of wine quickly bloomed. Soon, she was also working grape harvests in Washington State.
In 2007, Mary founded DAMA as one of Washington’s few certified woman-owned and managed wineries. As distinctive and stunning as the labels, DAMA wines engage both senses and imagination. They invite you to feel, and feel deeply. In our modern world, that’s a daring accomplishment.
