With a mission to provide water to communities in need -and to make a few bodacious bottles- a cool couple uncorks Tithe Wines.
It began with a glass of pinot noir. Oenophile Stephen Lewis, 42, had been traveling to Napa Valley regularly for years—sampling wines and basking in the vino culture. He read books about wine, studying it. It was his hobby; it was his golf. And then one day, sipping a pinot, a light bulb: He could make wine!
A native of Spring, a wealth advisor by profession, and a wellknown auctioneer for annual charity events like the Astros Wives gala, the neatly tailored Lewis couldn’t rest until he’d given it a try. So two years later, after as much unexpected red tape as red grapes, he and wife Allison Triarsi, a KHOU-11 TV news reporter, are ready to debut Tithe Wines (tithewines.com).
