Brice and Sarah Garrett are the owners and winemaking team behind Serrano Wine. The two met at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. The small campus is tucked away just off the Cumberland plateau, and students affectionately refer to the school as "The Mountain." By definition, Serrano means "one of/from the mountains." Their beginning on the Mountain was followed by graduation and a move out to Paso Robles, California. Sarah had spent most of her childhood summers visiting this area where her mother and stepfather had vineyards and a winery. With great aspirations of becoming the newest generation of winemakers, they took on the first of the many mountainous challenges in the wine industry: starting their own business. The two started as cellar rats at Rabbit Ridge winery, and quickly found a niche crafting their brand on the side. They both aspired to make wines that appealed to the younger generation of millennials, while also captivating established wine drinkers. They felt this would be accomplished by producing wines that were full in body with round, softer tannins. The goal was to make great wine that was approachable, while not sacrificing big body, flavor, and complexity.
