Founded in 2019 by multi-Grammy winning artist Brandi Carlile, her wife Catherine, and their friends, Amy and Jeri Andrews, XOBC Cellars is the antithesis of mediocrity. Steeped in generosity, their winery showcases the prestige and pedigree of the best that Walla Walla wine has to offer, coupled with an affable approachability. These women fused music and wine with a common goal of making a  difference. In a male-dominated industry, XOBC Cellars is a true outlier, showcasing female & LGBTQ+ leadership alongside superior fruit from world-renowned estate vineyards. Their dedication to the quality and care of their wines mirrors their commitment to creating change within the community.

Since inception, XOBC Cellars has donated proceeds to Brandi’s Looking Out Foundation, helping to provide assistance to those most vulnerable and in need. Drenched in community and friendship, their winery is an enviable example of a brand and collective that can contribute to the greater good. By bottling the goodness that comes from sharing a meal with a friend or a stranger and by creating wines reminiscent of a campfire, of the woods, of a sunrise or sunset, this team of women in wine has raised the bar for the entire industry.

Wine for the People

Wine For the People is cultivating community through wine culture with a greater impact. Based in Austin, Texas, the winery was founded in 2005 by Rae Wilson. A food and wine industry veteran from St. Louis with roots as a sommelier, she learned winemaking in Napa Valley and Portugal. Upon returning to Austin, she established Wine For the People, which now produces three wine brands- Dandy Rosé, The Grower Project & La Valentía. Stalwart dedication to Texas winegrowing and support for the Austin community have earned Rae accolades as “Superhero of the Austin Dining Scene” from Zagat’s.
