Sassy Girl Media Features our Winemaker

“When you sit back and watch someone do amazing things, you can’t help but share their story! That’s why I have to ask my friend, Marisa Sergi if she would let me interview her as a Sassy Girl Entrepreneur. {Because she pretty much fits exactly what a Sassy Girl Entrepreneur signifies} I first “officially” met Marisa when she attended one of my workshops and it didn’t take long to see the drive in the young woman. Since then, our friendship has grown and included many chats about life, love, business and of course, wine!”

CharBenay’s Celebrates Opening Wednesday (Warren, OH)

“Downtown Development Group acquired the building, formerly owned by the city of Warren, via the Western Reserve Port Authority in February 2018. In May, Butcher set a mid-June target for opening, but weather this spring was “just awful,” impeding the renovation.

“We finally got a break in the weather and the guys worked really hard,” Butcher says.

“So much rain,” affirms Mark Marvin, owner of Downtown Development Group. Last week, his workers finally were able to pour the concrete for the 4,000-square-foot patio, 230 linear feet of which run along the bank of the Mahoning River.

“It’s been a long time coming,” says Marisa Sergi, chief financial officer at L’uva Bella Winery in Lowellville, which is producing the first eight private-label brands Butcher will serve at CharBenay’s. “Everyone has been working very hard to make every detail and, of course, the wine, to be excellent.”

Other than the challenges posed by the weather, the building was easy to work on, Marvin says. “It’s laid out perfectly,” he says, noting renovations costs were $150,000.” Read more here:
