California Winery Founded by Sisters in Memory of their Mother
(Sonoma County – CALIF.) – Breathless Sparkling Wines from Healdsburg in California’s Sonoma County, is seeking nominations for Sparkling Moms from across the country to virtually celebrate Mother’s Day. Nominations are welcomed online at the winery website.
Breathless Wines was founded by sisters Sharon Cohn, Rebecca Faust and Cynthia Faust, in memory of their late mother who shared an unparalleled passion for life and special celebratory moments. Sadly, and tragically similar to so many losses of our current time, their mother Martha Jane was lost due to the rare, genetic respiratory condition Alpha-1 – therefore the name Breathless.
“Breathless is all about family and friends celebrating life,” said Sharon Cohn, “The fun, the adventure and taking no breath for granted. As our mother taught us, and so fitting for Mother’s Day, we should all be grateful and strive to live a heartfelt life.”
The three sisters, who are also all mothers, created an elegant winery experience with wines made by winemaker Penny Gadd-Coster in the méthode champenoise method, which results in delicious, premium sparkling wines.
“Spending time with our mom, was always a sparkling moment,” Cohn remembers, “She was a teacher, and she loved outdoor activities, led our Camp Fire Girls group, coached our soccer and softball teams, but most of all gave her heart in all that she did. She lived to create breathless experiences for all and loved to share them.”
“I can’t wait to see the Sparkling Mom nominations! Mothers give so much to us all,” Cohn added, “They are so precious and fill up our hearts, so that we each can go out into the world and pass it on. It will be our honor at Breathless Wines, to celebrate Sparkling Moms.”
