Mariana loves to spend her days in NYC, starting with lunch at Momofuko, then on to schvitzing at the Russian and Turkish baths, followed by an authentic sushi omakase, which do not get any better than in the Big Apple. Often she'll cap the night with a stop at a wine bar and yummy pho before the train ride home.
Living in Savannah, GA most of his life, Craig brings a bit of the south to Connecticut where he lives with his wife and 5-year-old twins.

His love and knowledge of the industry has brought him to Gooseneck Vineyards after years of working with some of Connecticut’s largest distributors.
