"One of the most successful alumnae of the program – at least in terms of her product’s reach – is Marisa Sergi, founder and winemaker of RedHead Brands LLC, winner of the $5,000 grant for WE Launch’s fall 2016 cohort.
Sergi had just moved back to the Mahoning Valley when she learned about WE Launch on Instagram. She was still in the early stages of launching Redhead and it was in about 100 stores at that point.
Today, Redhead is in 1,500 stores in the tri-state area, including about 150 Walmarts, having been selected to participate in the retail giant’s Investing in American Jobs initiative in 2017. The company is also preparing to launch its third wine, a sweet rosé, and is in conversations to expand to Kentucky and Tennessee. "
