Founder and creator of RedHead Wine, Marisa Sergi, took to her roots and followed her grandparents footsteps in becoming a winemaker. In 1953, Marisa’s grandparents immigrated to America with a suitcase and a dream. Marisa’s fascination with winemaking started at an early age and crushed her first grape clusters with her grandfather. Her love for winemaking blossomed in the fifth grade. As a part of her capstone project at Cornell University, Marisa created RedHead Wine with the goal of establishing a new and exciting brand in the market. Using her flaming red hair and love for hot wings, she became the CEO & Founder of RedHead Brands at 23.

As long as you are confident and believe in yourself, you are going to do really well.
