Dream It, Live It is an annually-selected professional partnership opportunity aimed towards wine entrepreneurs. Inclusion has always been powerful, and the program will empower a more inclusive wine industry, one growing business at a time.

Relationships are the root of Demeine Estates’ business, and Dream It, Live It aims to use the importer’s established network to provide unique opportunities for minority-owned businesses and social responsibility organizations with a commitment to changing the wine industry, while also building community by connecting them with one another. Applications for 2023 partnership are now closed, and we will be announcing our upcoming partner in January 2023.


“Dream It, Live It is an intentional, action-oriented initiative that demonstrates a core belief of Demeine Estates: that business is done with people, and superior business is ethical, genuine, transparent, and inclusive,” – Senior Brand Manager Alexa D’Acquisto
