The founders of Sosie Wines, Scott MacFiggen and Regina Bustamonte, have appreciated good wine and food for decades. Regina recalls her grandmother mixing a bit of wine with some fizzy water for the kids during Sunday lunches growing up, while Scott’s grandfather owned a farm in upstate New York where Scott learned how amazing farm-fresh produce tastes. As adults in the high-tech world, Scott and Regina actually met at a Friday evening wine mixer. After travelling to France together, they became enamored with Old World traditions. After several trips to France these shared experiences provided inspiration for Sosie Wines. When they decided to launch their own wine brand, Scott and Regina wanted to bridge the gap between new-world vineyards and old-world style wines. They were so committed to creating French-inspired wines that they chose as their name Sosie (pronounced ‘so-zee’), the French word for look-alike or spitting image. They even designed their logo as a marriage of French and Californian influences: the grizzly bear featured on theCalifornia state flag, with a proud French rooster standing upon the bear’s back.
