This week we chat with Kate of the Grape Outdoors and Michael of Penelope Bourbon Rosé.
About Kate and The Grape Outdoors wants to show you everything there is to love about Northern Spain through the lens of a wine glass. We love the idea of creating tours that leave pretension at the door and are full of fun, adventure, and just the right amount of wanderlust.
Spain has taught us many wonderful lessons, not least of which is that a bottle of wine always tastes better when shared. Come with us as we open bottles with locals, adventure into the Spanish countryside, and drink wine exactly where it was grown. You don’t need to be an expert, just excited and curious.
We know there are people like us who love how the wine tastes on a beach, after a hike, and paired with chili cooked on a camp stove. These are small group tours designed for people who love wine because it tastes good, the outdoors because it’s beautiful, and campfires because they’re cozy.
Penelope Bourbon is a company that was crafted in the classic entrepreneurial tradition. Mike Paladini and his wife, Kerry teamed up with his close friend and childhood next-door neighbor, Danny Polise. Both grew up in Basking Ridge, NJ. They began to embark on creating a bourbon that everyone could enjoy and love.
Both found out in 2018 that their wives were expecting. Mike and Kerry always knew that if they had a girl, her name would be Penelope. The day they found out they were having a girl, a light bulb went off. Mike and Kerry decided they wanted to bring together two things they both love so dearly – their soon-to-be baby girl, Penelope, and Straight Bourbon Whiskey. A company was born.
About Penelope Bourbon Rosé
It was their first Limited Release straight bourbon whiskey finished in French Rosé Wine Casks. They’ve married our signature four-grain blend of three bourbon mash bills with hand-selected French Grenache Rosé Wine Casks from the Southern Rhône region to bring together a truly unique alliance of flavor.
