Fourteen years ago, Shelbi Herring started a wine importing company - buying wine from very small wineries in Argentina and selling them to restaurants, wine shops, etc. all over the San Francisco Bay Area. She was only 26! Now the business has grown to include more wine from more countries, a winery of it's own, and Copa Fina now sells wine all over California and Arizona. It's a great story of entrepreneurship, and a fun chat between two longtime friends catching up over wine and talking about various winey things ("orange wine" and "pet nat" explained!).
