|Counter Punch Wines was founded by Stephen and
Julie Hare in 2012. Stephen has spent his adult life in
the California wine industry and has always yearned to
start his own wine label. When Julie was diagnosed
with Multiple Sclerosis, MS, in 2009, we were amazed
at how many great organizations provided help.
In November 2011 found we attended an MS support
group session at the University of California, San
Francisco. We were in awe of the brave faces that were
able to find things to be grateful for, even though MS
had seriously disabled them. As Stephen was reflecting
on the events from that evening, he gazed at a
photograph of his grandparents hanging on the family
room wall. That photograph became the inspiration
and label for our wine.
Counter Punch Wines was started with the mutual
goals of producing small lots of hand-made wines from
California’s best vineyards while generating funds that
would allow us to give something back to
organizations that help “Counter Punch” the effects of
