Featured Interview: Brandon Allen, SLO Down Wines
January 12, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
My name is Brandon Allen and when I was five years old I knew exactly what I wanted to be. A fire truck. Anyway, when I was a freshman in college, I made my first barrel of wine. Everything after that is a blur. The more wine I made, the better it got. At least that’s what my friends with rail-whisky-proven palates told me. Four years later, I was finally ready to commit to something: dropping out. Armed with eight grand of unspent student loan money, I started Slo Down Wines. In the first year, I made 93 cases of Sexual Chocolate, a wine named after my love of Mad Libs. That was 2008. Today, Slo Down represents every dreamer who’s ever dreamed a dream and then did something completely different than that dream which then became their dream.
