    Making it in America: Mompreneurs

    Granddadpreneurs are busy too!

     
    After years of working in the Napa Valley Wine Industry, and spending lots of time pouring wine in barrel rooms and wine cellars and hearing people mention how much they love the smell of the oak barrels and the unfermented Cabernet grapes, and after joking repeatedly about the fact that if I could sell the tourists that unique aroma I could make a fortune, I decided to blend a fragrance and put it in a candle. Barrel Room Candles now sells all over the United States through True Fabrications, an onsite winery tasting room supplier as well as through CruScents, a distributor in Florida, and of course through our own web site. We have recently diversified to sell other fragrances in our candles such as Creme Brulee, Pumpkin Souffle, Fresh Coffee and Twilight Woods, but our flagship candle, our Barrel Room Candle continues to be our biggest seller. Our candles are handpoured in the Napa Valley, CA.
