GenuWine Arizona is owned by Emily Rieve & Lindsey Schoenemann; two former Junior High teachers who followed their dream of opening a wine bar. Emily and Lindsey met while teaching 7th grade math & science in Gilbert, Arizona. They quickly became best friends and found that they work best when they collaborate together.
The pair decided to open GenuWine after Emily encountered similar technology on a trip to France. Their passion for supporting local wine led them to connecting with Arizona winemakers, and those wines are showcased in the self-serve machines.
