MSix Wine Group
After sampling the fruits of France's Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Champagne viticulture regions, friends and entrepreneurs Jordan Rasmussen, Matt Iaconis, and Edward Brown founded a winery of their own. Shunning the corner-cutting, crass commercialism, and cabernet-fueled buyout binges of large corporate wineries, the trio practices the craft with a passion—concocting mouthwatering still and sparkling wines from local harvests. The hardworking vintners invest plenty of time and effort into every batch of bubbly or vino, proudly displaying the fruits of their labors to the public with lively tastings and soirees.
