WHO WE ARE
Jaime Araujo has been working in wine slightly longer than she’s been a rescue dog parent. She started her first wine consultancy, Terravina, in France in 2004 – the same year Elliot the rescue lab came into her life. In 2016 Jaime moved back to Napa from a long stint overseas, and started making wine both with her family (Accendo Cellars) and with her own team (Trois Noix). The Graham + Stella project unites her main loves in life: great wine, great friends, and great pups.
Though Christy Canterbury worked several harvests in Burgundy and Austria, Graham + Stella is her exclusive foray into the wine production side – for the love of rescued fur babies, dear friends and fine wine. Four years before meeting Graham Cracker on a Manhattan sidewalk, Christy became a Master of Wine, the seventh woman in the US to earn the title. When Graham Cracker isn’t insisting on her attention, Christy writes for wine magazines. When Graham Cracker sees her suitcase, he understands that Christy will soon will be off to host wine media shows or events, to speak at conferences or to judge at international competitions. Christy previously directed restaurant beverage programs around the world and spearheaded wine purchasing for leading New York and Hong Kong retailers.
