On 11 September 2001, they were living one block away from the World Trade Center. After seeing both planes crash into the buildings from a few hundred metres, they left their apartment with what they could carry. In the aftermath of that disaster, they lost their home, jobs and their right to live in the States.
The experience made them think about what really mattered in their life. They wanted a different environment for their children. They wanted to have more control over their direction and to spend our time working at something that truly motivates them. Enter wine…
Named after their New York apartments distance from the World Trade Center.
