A brief history
Both from Missouri, Laine and Drew Pauk married in 2013. Planning to build their lives in St. Louis, they each pursued careers in their respective fields – Drew in business management, Laine as a pharmacist. As time went on, they developed a passion [obsession] with wine that took them to famous vineyards both at home and abroad. As a compliment to their traveling, Drew worked to obtain multiple wine certifications, including Certified Specialist in Wine (CSW) and Certified Wine Educator (CWE) from the Society of Wine Educators, and Certified Sommelier (CS) from the Guild of Master Sommeliers. Eventually, in the summer of 2016, their travels took them to eastern Washington. Immediately, they knew there was something very special about this place and in the spring of 2017 Laine and Drew threw caution to the wind and moved across the country to Walla Walla, WA.
