Our Story

The Mama's behind Decanted: 

Julia and Melissa met 8 years ago when Julia went on Yelp looking for the best hairstylist in town. They became fast friends. Between Julia and Melissa, they have 7 children and were fortunate enough to be pregnant together for their last babies, and to finally have boys.

 

Melissa has been a successful hairstylist and entrepreneur for 16 years. Julia began her entrepreneurial career 15 years ago, and has started a variety of successful businesses, including H2K, her mobile-based kid's fitness company which began franchising in 2017. When the pandemic began, both Melissa and Julia took major hits within their personal businesses. 

 

Julia, who could not sit still and loved anything and everything wine, knew that there was something good to come out of this whole mess.

 

One night, over wine, Julia told Melissa about this idea, and a week later, Melissa bought Winona (although she was not nearly as pretty as she is now)!

 

Both Melissa and Julia love spending time with family and friends with good food and great wines. Decanted’s philosophy is that wine can be delicious and amazing, but doesn’t have to be pretentious or break the bank. With these unpredictable times, who wouldn’t want a beautiful wine bar to pull up to your house or event and serve you delicious wines, beers, snacks, and play your favorite music? Decanted can even customize your event with flowers, table linens, and a signature cocktail. Decanted has a variety of packages to fit within any budget and premiere customized packages are also available.
