PENN YAN, N.Y., Nov. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Bravery Winery (Bravery) is pleased to announce its transition from wine brand to winery, as one of the newest additions to the Finger Lakes wineries. Founded in 2019 by U.S. Air Force veteran Corey Christman (Christman) and his wife Jennifer Christman, Bravery will continue to donate a portion of proceeds of each bottle sold to support Veteran, Military Spouse and First Responder focused non-profit organizations.
Bravery has a unique and meaningful mission focus, with founders who have dedicated their lives as advocates for the military, Veteran and Military Spouses, and First Responder communities. Christman is a retired USAF Special Agent and veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Jennifer is a proud veteran spouse, dedicating her personal and professional endeavors to serving veterans, their family members, and caregivers. She is a go-to national expert on mental health solutions, veteran resources, and serves on several national boards, including the Yellow Ribbon Fund. She is also a national speaker advocating for equitable access to behavioral health care.
Christman started his professional winemaking journey after his retirement from the U.S. Air Force. In 2014, he completed enology and commercial winemaking operations courses at Washington State University. Christman then met the owners of Anthony Road Wine Company, John and Ann Martini, and head winemaker, Peter Becraft, and has spent the past ten vintages, working side by side with Becraft to hone his winemaking skills.
"We are honored to become one of New York state's newest wineries. Our friends, The Martini Family, and the staff at Anthony Road Wine Company, have stood shoulder to shoulder with us throughout this journey - we could not be more grateful for their support," Founder, Corey Christman.
Bravery is in the final stages of securing property for a tasting room, with Bravery Wines available for purchase online, shipped to 38 U.S. states. Every purchase from Bravery Wines will result in a contribution of $2 per bottle to fund Veteran, Military Spouse and First Responder focused non-profit organizations.
"We're honored to partner with various non-profit organizations such as the Yellow Ribbon Fund, Clear Path For Veterans, The Institute for Veterans and Military Families and the Special Liberty Project, - We've dedicated our lives to serving those who serve others," said Jennifer Christman.
