Dyan Grant is an Orange native and is currently employed in the wine industry. She holds an MBA from Quinnipiac University. She has traveled extensively throughout the world visiting wineries in many different wine growing regions and countries. She works closely with both winery owners & wine makers. Dyan has always been very passionate about food & wine and this led her to a love for corks. For her, every cork tells a unique story about the wine, the winery, the vineyard sites and finally, the people. She is drawn to the beauty, pictures & information on each cork. Dyan adds different elements to complement the beauty including jewelry, fabrics, shells & sea glass.
