Larry & Barb — Owner/Managers. Larry and Barb were introduced to Water 2 Wine through their daughter-in-law, Peggy. She and their son, Scott, visited the Water 2 Wine store in Round Rock, Texas, and were impressed by the wines available and the whole winemaking process. Shortly after that introduction, Larry retired from his Quality Management role in the plastics industry. Larry and Barb had long discussed a business of their own and this seemed like the perfect match to go along with their love of meeting new people, their enjoyment of wine and a sincere appreciation of good customer service. Water 2 Wine was established in Brookfield in 2012.  Larry’s favorite varietal is anything red and bold. Barb’s favorite is Chateau du Pays in the reds and Washington Riesling in the whites.

John — Winemaker. John has been with Water 2 Wine since 2013. He is a retiree and good friend of Larry and Barb. He takes great pride and care in watching over hundreds of gallons of wine each week. You’ll see him in the fermentation room. If you ask, or even if you don’t, he’ll be pleased to tell you all about how he makes the wine, or maybe even pour you a sample.
