All of this is included in SOWI’s incubator program, which allows start-up wineries to produce high quality wines, while putting their start-up capital where it is really needed. Besides serving as a venue to pour SOWI’s award winning wines, the SOWI tasting room offers amazing views, and space available to the public to rent for special events.
