Ashley Diamond entered the wine business and opened Vine & Co. as someone who simply loves and appreciates wine. Now as proprietor of the store, she is committed to making sure it is a place that is warm, welcoming and comfortable for oenophiles and wine novices alike.
A native of Westchester, Ashley worked in marketing and lived in New York City before settling in Katonah, where she now lives with her husband and two daughters. When the opportunity arose to take over a wine and spirits shop in her local shopping center, Ashley jumped at the chance and enlisted her friend Meg Burdick, now General Manager, to help create the ideal store.
They came up with Vine & Co.'s tag lines: "Save Water: Drink Wine", "Lifting Spirits" and "Drink Happy". Ashley clearly believes that life should be a celebration. "Whether you are just conquering your day, marking a milestone, a birthday, or anything in between–wine really brings people together; it symbolizes enjoyment and happiness," she said.
