From owner Anthony Leaderbrand:
How many years have you been in business?
What has been one of your biggest challenges in starting or operating your business?
The most challenging, is the diversity of the challenges. We can have Agriculture, Wine Production, Retail, Marketing, Event Planning, & Wholesale issues to contend with all in the same conversation, then include a controlled substance with complex laws. Our job is to make it look fun and easy.
What is an interesting fact about your business that most people don’t know?
Most people don’t realize that our Tivoli Wine Shop was completely furnished by us. The Cook Group installed the floor and light fixtures, and we funded and installed the rest. All at a time when our business was still in its infancy.
What was one of your greatest accomplishments in 2016?
Cody Leaderbrand came to work for the winery, he is a son and a grandson of the owners. This makes three generations of Leaderbrands running Owen Valley Winery.
As a member of the Chamber of Commerce, how does the Chamber help you?
The Chamber of Commerce has coordinated conversations with Score.
