Marisa Sergi is a third-generation winemaker and one of the forces behind L’uva Bella Winery. After earning a B.S in winemaking from Cornell University and moving to California to work for the largest winery in the U.S., she moved back to Ohio to launch one of her brands, RedHead Wine, now known as Red’s Wine. A few years later all her wines can be found in Ohio, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, DC and soon to be NC + SC. Due to the success of the Red’s brand, she acquired her family winery, L’uva Bella in 2020, where Marisa develops and executes multiple brands. This has earned L’uva Bella the title of one of Ohio’s fastest growing wine companies and being recognized by the world’s largest retailer as a “Lead Supplier.” Marisa is not only passionate about wine, but also the entrepreneurial spirit. Over the past few years, Marisa has spoken to over 50,000 aspiring entrepreneurs and continues to mentor students as an Entrepreneur in Residence at Cornell. Read more
