Heidi is co-owner of Tabouret Winery which will be located in southeast Michigan. Heidi’s love of wine and the craft itself is what inspired the journey to Tabouret. Her husband created the first batch of cherry wine as her wedding gift in 2017 and that sparked the fire. It’s been a burning passion for them both since. Heidi’s commitment to education and community involvement will be apparent in the foundation of the winery and the events to come.
“I am completely humbled to be awarded this wonderful scholarship! A most heartfelt thank you to Women of the Vine and Spirits and E. & J. Gallo Winery ‘’Women Behind the Wine’ Educational Fund! It comes at the perfect time to make a great impact in the future of our winery. I certainly anticipate paying it forward by passing on the knowledge gained to our customers through a laid-back approach to wine education. We will also use it as inspiration when giving back to our community! This gift will indeed allow me to ‘Follow My Dreams.”
