Build One Step At a Time - Lacey Lybecker, Cairdeas Winery
Lacey Lybecker and her husband, Charlie, have created a true family affair. As they've built Cairdes Winery they have incorporated the help of their two young children by allowing them to contribute artwork for their "Select Artist Series" wine labels. Her, her husband, and her children have become known around the tasting room as the winemaker and assistant winemamkers. Lacey stated, "Most people think it's a million dollar minimum to get started in the wine industry, but we were able to get our garage converted into a licensed production facility...and we scraped up money to buy some used equipment...." One step at a time, they've developed an exponentially gowing business and have doubled their production with each year.
