the project:
Taken Wine Company was founded in 2009 when next generation winemakers,
Carlo Trinchero and Josh Phelps realized their mutual dream to start their own
wine label. Josh and Carlo grew up together in the winegrowing town of St. Helena,
in the Napa Valley—wine is in their DNA. The wines are crafted to appeal to the
millennial generation in terms of both what’s inside and outside the bottle. The
names (Taken, Complicated, and Available) all tie into social media and are relevant
to their generation.
