Diana and Frank with Champagne Outside and a thought bubble above them that says "Let's do something crazy"

We’re two nerds from the Midwest who somehow found our way into the wine industry. Over time, we began to realize that something was seriously wrong.

Wine was super interesting, but most people talking about it were boring and, shall we say, a bit snobby about it all?

And that just ain’t us….

So, we created Responsible Hedonist to make tasty wines from Aotearoa New Zealand you don’t see everyday, answer alllll your wine questions (yes even that one), and have some fun. Join us, won’t you?
