Today we gathered for the 5th Annual Meritage of Miracles at Stambaugh Auditorium downtown Youngstown, Ohio. Founder, Michelle Sergi, a third year medical student and seven year volunteer at Akron children's palliative care kicked off the event with a VIP hour of wine and food with RedHead winemaker, Marisa. Throughout the evening there was live entertainment, food, drinks and, of course, wine!

My grandparents had many parties and my grandpa made enough wine for them all. As a three-year-old, I escaped from my grandma’s watchful eye into the wine cellar where she found me trying to get wine out of their barrels with my sippy cup!

A third-generation winemaker, Sergi says that the RedHead brand stems from her “’take on the world’ attritude and passion for wine,” and it certainly seems to have resonated—having attracted media attention from Teen Vogue and an ongoing partnership with Walmart.
"Marisa Sergi's fascination with winemaking began in fifth grade, when crushing a cluster of grapes on her grandfather's hand-cranked press produced the sweet juice that would one day be bottled as wine.
Now 24, Sergi is the proprietor of RedHead Wine, a brand she named for her own fiery mane. The company founder and third-generation winemaker currently has two blends on offer: Sergi's Red Blend combines California Zinfandel and Chilean Carménère to create what she describes as a delectable marriage of sweet and spicy. Her Provence-Style Rosé, meanwhile, is blended from a trio of California varietals offering notes of strawberry and melon."
