Today we are talking about Wine … Recently I had the opportunity to sit down with Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey, founders of Barefoot, America’s number #1 wine brand, during Small Business Week presented by the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce. They also co-authored the New York Times Bestselling Business Paperback, The Barefoot Spirit: How Hardship, Hustle, and Heart Built America’s #1 Wine Brand.
They are speakers, writers, consultants and world- class thought leaders in entrepreneurship. They are keynote speakers at the World Conference on Entrepreneurship in Dublin, Ireland. Their journey to building Barefoot is an inspiring story that every entrepreneur should read. Michael and Bonnie took an opportunity and created a wine brand that forever changed America’s wine industry. They successfully sold the brand to E&J Gallo in 2005.
