The Mama behind Decanted

Julia Walderzak
Chief Wine Officer

Julia began her entrepreneurial career 15 years ago, and has started a variety of successful businesses (because she can't sit still), including H2K, her mobile-based kid's fitness company which began franchising in 2017. 

 

Her love for wine started back in her days of working in the restaurant business in New York City. The more she learned about wine - the more she fell in love with it. Julia knew something wine related was going to be a business venture for her. Cut to a few years later, the pandemic hit and Julia saw it as her opportunity to jump on this "crazy wine camper idea". Voilà, Decanted was born!

 

Julia is a mom of 3 and loves spending time with family and friends with good food and great wines.

*If you are looking to ask Julia questions about how Decanted runs and business related questions about Decanted's business model, please note she charges a consulting fee*

Jen Buckalew
Marketing 

Jen is our marketing maven and has been involved with marketing for almost 10 years.  She has worked with everything from big companies to startups.

Before she did all things marketing, Jen worked in the wine and spirits industry for many years and was the Scotch Ambassador for Empire Distributors in Atlanta, GA (ya'll).  She also made wine along famed wine maker Jordan Fiorentini at Chalk Hill winery in Sonoma, California. 

When Julia met Jen it ONLY made sense for her to do the marketing for Decanted - and maybe some scotch education and wine tasting too. 

Jen and her husband love their two doggies, and are owners of an organic farm in Westborough, MA where they make and sell jams and honey.

Tammy Johnson
Bookkeeping

Tammy is our bookkeeping baddie and makes sure all of Decanted’s financial affairs are in order.


She’s been here right from the start making sure our “lil’ startup that could” WOULD!

She owned her own company (like a boss) with her husband for 25 years before it was acquired in 2016.  Since then, she has worked in the finance area with many small startups and non-profits providing financial and management solutions.


Tammy has lived in Hudson all her life and has 3 grown kids and a dog.  She definitely sees her dog more than the kids, but LOVES when they can all be together.

Jessica Montejo
Bartending/Florals

Jess is one of our amazing bartenders.  You’ll usually see her beside Julia serving up delicious cocktails out of Winona.

Have you seen the photos of some of the gorgeous flower arraignments we offer?  Those are all created by Jess!  Yup, she not only works the bar she has her own floral design company – Maidenhair Floral Design (named for her favorite plant – the maidenhair fern).

Jess has been a florist for over 20 years and has done showers, weddings, parties and has even taught classes! 

 

Jess lives in Hudson with her husband and is a mom to 2 humans and 2 cats.  She loves a good pinot grigio and knows all the words to every Disney song ever made.  Don’t test her on this.  You will lose.
