When you stop to ask “What IF”,
where does your imagination go?.  

What do you dream about and what do you want to achieve?

These wines are Alie Shaper’s very personal answers to these questions. Through Serendipity, Courage and Persistence, she became a pioneer winemaker, entrepreneur, and consultant.  As If wines are a very personal exploration of her previous journey as well as her future.

Serendipity is delivery of opportunity, to one ready to receive it.
