Happy Mama’s Day! – Introducing our Speak Mama Collection & the Amazing Ladies Who Were Involved May 14 2017

With Mother’s Day in mind, we wanted to launch a collection in collaboration with a mix of really inspiring, fun and all around badass entrepreneurial Moms with quotes that would speak to all the Moms out there (who, ahem , need a glass of wine from time to time)! We asked them to share their motherly advice, or favorite Mama quote and oversee the creative direction of their labels design. Let’s just say, we’re in love with these new babies. To make it even better, a portion of the sales from all “Mama Collection” bottles sold will benefit organizations that give back to both children and mothers in need!

To learn more about the amazing moms that we part of this collaboration, please visit our, “Meet The Mamas” page here.

Additionally, let’s not forget two extra Mamas that were involved. Label design was provided by Meghann Miniello an amazing graphic artist (and mommy) from Santa Cruz, California. For more information, please visit: http://meghannminiello.com
 
Plus, our wonderful photographer (and Mom) Emma Feil who took beautiful images of the entire collection and Mamas! Check out her awesome work here: http://www.emmafeilphotography.com

 

We hope all the badass moms out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Don’t forget, we’re selling these wines all year long, so keep our Mama Collection in mind when you’re shopping for your next Mama gift!

Meet Speaks Intern! November 05 2015

Hi Speak readers! I'm so excited to introduce myself as the public relations and social media intern for Speak Wines. I want everyone to get to know me, especially because I like getting to know people. Plus we already have something in common, you like Speak and so do I!

I am currently 22 and a senior at Cal State Fullerton majoring in Communication with an emphasis in advertising. One of the most important things I’ve learned in the last year of college is how important it is to challenge yourself. Set goals and focus on your personal success. After college, I want to travel, enjoy life, and hopefully be an awesome advertising account executive for some really cool company (but really). My dream job would be working for the NFL yes, the National Football League, I know it’s crazy. Besides that I like to write, eat, and enjoy just talking with people. My favorite color is red and my favorite food is Mediterranean. I also have a huge sweet tooth.

 

Some interesting little facts about me…

If I could travel anywhere in the whole world it would be Morocco or Turkey.

My favorite drink depends on my mood, I always love a good margarita but when I’m feeling extra classy I love champagne. But of course I do love a good glass of wine.

What do not a lot of people know about me but I wish they did? Not a lot of people know about me is I’m scared of failure. I believe failure is key to success however, I want to be successful in life and I often worry I won’t be. Don’t get me wrong I believe one should always embrace failure. Learning from a situation and being able to grow is extremely important.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me! I’m so excited to be on this journey with Speak Wines but I’m also excited to connect with new people. Feel free to Speak with us! Follow us @speakwines or my personal account @julia_jayyy

Speak Soon!
