Wine deserves new rituals. Not fancier bottles or flowery labels. But new wine to drink and new ways to drink it. Wine that moves us, and also moves with us. Wine that connects us to the makers — and to the people we’re drinking it with.
Maker is rattling the status quo and putting premium wine in a can. And we’re willing to break a few bottles along the way.
We’re creating wine for people like you — who care about where their wine came from. People who are curious about small wineries and their unconventional makers. Who support the independent creators over the mass producers. And who want to feel connected to their wine, and to the people they’re sharing it with.
Kendra and Sarah are two kindred spirits and wine lovers who met as classmates at Stanford Business School. Before Maker, Sarah led Food and Beverage marketing at Eventbrite. Her side hustles included helping start-ups with digital marketing, homebrewing, and starting an underground supper club in SF. Kendra worked as a management consultant in healthcare where she loved lifting up the little guys in a complex, regulated industry (sound familiar?). She moonlights as an amateur photographer and acrobat. Together they became obsessed with building a company that would support premium wine from independent producers — sans the snobbery.Get the whole story
