Angela…

Angela Osborne has been involved in the wine industry since 1996. Born to an American father and New Zealand mother, Angela was raised in New Zealand, and worked in a wine shop whilst in college. After graduating film school in Auckland in 2002, Angela decided to take the advice of a winemaker-friend to do one harvest, before entering into film. She applied for a harvest position at Simi Winery in Healdsburg……..

Faith…

Faith Armstrong has been involved with the wine industry since 1997. Born to American parents and raised in Canada, Faith returned to the US in the late nineties to pursue a career in the wine industry. Her experiences range from managing tasting rooms to restaurants, and in 2002, Faith took the leap of faith towards winemaking ~ and applied for a harvest position at Simi Winery in Healdsburg……

After their first harvest together, a lifelong friendship was formed. Faith went on to study winemaking at UC Davis, whilst Angela moved to London to learn the art of selling wine. In 2006, both were finished with their respective adventures. Faith moved to Napa to work for Frank Family Vineyards as Assistant Winemaker, and Angela back to the US to pursue winemaking full-time.

In the years following, both Faith and Angela launched their own wine brands. A Tribute to Grace Wine Company is Angela’s label, which began during her tenure as a winemaker in Ojai. She focuses solely on Grenache. Onward Wines is Faith’s label, and was born during her role at Frank Family Vineyards in the Napa Valley. Faith’s focus is Pinot Noir from the Anderson Valley.

Together, Angela and Faith have shared winemaking, weddings, and many a road-trip. Their dream for many years has been to create a wine together, and the time is nigh.
