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 2008, 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 MS.
