LAURA LEE & BRYN
Salt+Vine is a passion project for us. We are never happier than when we are hosting: girls brunches around the kitchen table, summer BBQs on the back porch overlooking the bay, or afternoon tea with the good china. Our friendship was forged by opening bottles on our porches, in the pool, and of course, at any wine bar we could find. Salt+Vine is a way to welcome our friends and the community to our tables. Although wine has many sophisticated associations, it should never be intimidating. Come on over, just as you are. We saved a spot for you!
Whether she's coaching in the boardroom, baking in her kitchen, or fishing in the bay, Laura Lee is NEVER a mermaid out of water. Her passions are as varied and diverse as her friendships. Laura Lee is a connector who brings people together with ease. If she's not planning her next soiree, she's dreaming of ways to support her friends and her community. And not just dreaming. Her energy is never-ending! She's the driving force behind S+V. Bryn is so lucky that Laura Lee moved next door and extended the invitation for that first bottle of wine. Theirs is a friendship relying heavily on their passions for books, supporting women in business, and of course, wine. When she's not working, Laura Lee is on the boat with her guys: husband Justin (a.k.a. Footz) and sons Travis, Carson, and Drew, or snuggling with her Big Salty Dogs (English Mastiffs) Harper Lee and Atticus Finch. She drinks Malbec and she pours generously.
Sometimes you find friends who make every day a little more beautiful, and Laura Lee was lucky enough to find one in Bryn. She's like an afternoon at the beach- her soul is full of sunshine! From meetings with clients at her law firm to creating new traditions with her kids (twins Caroline and Maggie and son Thomas) she has the ability to make the most ordinary moments sparkle. Her passion for supporting other women is unparalleled, and she puts words into action by supporting her friends, women in her community, and complete strangers. If Laura Lee is the driving force behind Salt+Vine, Bryn is definitely the brains! She has a fierce intelligence and sharp wit. A friendship forged over a few (several?) bottles of wine and a love of entertaining others was bound to result in something fantastic- thus the creation of Salt+Vine! If she's got a spare minute, you can probably find Bryn on a "Coffee and Costco" date with her husband, TJ. Her love of robust red wine rivals only her love of Amazon Prime. She drinks Cabernet and will teach you to saber champagne.
