Born and raised in Athens, Greece and spending summers at his family home in Santorini, Stephen is no stranger to the diversity of the country’s wines. Pursuing a PhD in Biology led to fieldwork all over Greece, which led to the discovery of some of the country’s best wineries. After completing studies at Texas Tech University, Stephen moved to Dallas and taught Ecology at the University of North Texas. Observing a lack of high quality Greek wines in Texas, importing Greek wine became an intriguing endeavor that turned into a full time obsession. Stephen runs sales and operations for R&R and is always happy to talk about Greek wines. Call or contact him on Facebook.
With a Master’s degree in Nutritional Science, Caraline is an advocate of a healthy Mediterranean diet, and that includes wine! She has conducted university research on the health properties of resveratrol (a component found in wine) and taught university classes on nutrition. Caraline first fell in love with Stephen, then fell in love with Greek wines. Combining her passions, Caraline educates our distributors and customers about Greek wine and how to market these excellent wines to end consumers.

Learning about Greek wines she quickly became intrigued with the high quality, mineral and complexity of the wines. In 2015, that intrigue became a business plan with all three founders ready to embark and start making available more fine wines from all over Greece to Texas and the rest of the US.
