At ShelaLara Vineyards & Winery, vintners work with modern equipment to produce more than 20 different wines. Using grapes and fruit imported from California and other sun-soaked regions, the enophiles fill tanks with sweet elixirs including their in-house specialty wine slush. The glacier wines, fruit essences, and vintage wines run a colorful gamut from the off purple of the sky just after sunset to the hue of warm honey. ShelaLara?s winemaking process, including fermentation, bottling, and 21-gun salutes following spills, all takes place in Rhode Island.

Q&A with Kathleen Tefft and Guy Gauvin, Owners and Operators

Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?

Complimentary muffins, coffee, and juice with the sunrise tours; complimentary snacks and beverages with the sunset and moonlight tours.

How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?

We have a mobile fleet of paddleboards and kayaks, which means we can meet you anywhere and deliver to a customer's location. The locations we list on our website are just a few examples of where we can paddle.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

We are lifelong residents of the Ocean State and both love spending time by the water. Guy began SUP several years ago while living in Maryland. Kathleen began paddling a year ago in Narragansett Bay and was immediately hooked.
