Wolffer Estate Vineyard

Joey Wolffer grew up on the land that Wolffer Estate Vineyard now exists on. Only back then, the picturesque forest of vines were potato fields that her father Christian saw as an opportunity to make something big. If there is ever an example of risk taking paying off (albeit with a lot of hard work) Wolffer Vineyard is it. Since it was founded in 1988, the vineyard has only evolved – forged by passion, family dynamic, and really good rosé.

Grow Up

I have this problem.

My experience with, and knowledge of, exotic beauty ingredients stretches back to the time my sister convinced me to let her exfoliate my face with what I later learned were silk worm cocoons and snail excrement. Yeah, I was shocked and disgusted, yet slightly intrigued. What other weird ingredients existed in the realm of beauty?? I try to stay aware of what is inside the products I’m applying to my face and body, and the closer I looked, the more I found that there are some extremely unusual ingredients out there that, if nothing else, make you giggle.
