During the pandemic, a transformation occurred in the lives of many individuals. With more time on their hands, people explored new interests and rediscovered long-forgotten hobbies. For Stephanie Franklin, this period marked the beginning of a journey of self-discovery and a significant shift from the fast-paced tech industry to the intricate world of wine.

Hopping from one industry to another, especially when it is as drastic as moving from tech to wine, often raises questions. What motivates someone to make such a leap? What were they inspired by? For Stephanie, the journey into the world of wine wasn’t started on a whim. It was a heartfelt desire to understand an entirely unfamiliar domain born of true passion.

It started during conversations between Stephanie and friends in the wine industry. Like a spark that ignited a fire within, these discussions grew a curiosity in her to explore a realm previously unknown. At the time, she didn’t realize just how much it would change her life, or that it would lead to the creation of Fly Wines.

While the conversations sparked her curiosity, a particular wine-tasting kit experience eventually served as the catalyst for the entrepreneurial side of her journey. As she tasted some less-than-stellar wine from the kit, a profound idea struck her. What if she could curate a wine-tasting box filled only with the finest selections? The simple yet brilliant thought became the cornerstone of Fly Wines.

From that moment onward, Stephanie was on a mission not only to unravel the intricacies of the wine industry but to turn her vision into a tangible reality. Passion combined with an unwavering determination to craft an exceptional tasting experience served as her driving force. It wasn’t just about building a business but about creating a unique and unforgettable experience, an adventure others could share with her.

Creating a business is never an easy feat, but Stephanie assembled a diverse team of experts to complement her own strengths. Each member shared her vision, embraced the uncertainties of starting something new, and worked tirelessly to turn their collective dreams into a reality.

The efforts paid off, and in the midst of a pandemic, Fly Wines emerged as a symbol of celebration. The company approached the market with an unwavering commitment to authenticity and inclusivity, carefully curating wines from independent wineries worldwide, with each bottle telling a unique story of artistry and craftsmanship.

In the end, Fly Wines became the convergence of two seemingly disparate worlds — technology and the art of winemaking — which fostered a deeper appreciation for the beauty and diversity found in every sip.

Today, Stephanie stands as the proud CEO of Fly Wines, deeply grateful for the challenges that have molded her path and excited about the bright future ahead.

To those who may be contemplating a leap of faith, Stephanie offers some sage advice, “Listen to the whispers of your passion, seize the opportunities that come your way, and fearlessly embark on your own journey of change. You never know where it might lead you, but one thing is certain — it will be a destination worth the journey.”

In her reflection, Stephanie encourages others to listen to their passion, seize opportunities, and fearlessly embark on a journey of change. The whispers of your passion might very well guide you toward your own Fly Wines, or it might just be a remarkable journey filled with transformation, growth, and the realization of your true calling.
