No less than three years ago, Katherine Jones was working as a marketing manager in Manchester, driving day-in-day-out to the office from her home in Liverpool. But on the weekends, with the earnings she scraped together to fund flights to Italy, she was meeting with winemakers from all over Treviso, Italy's prosecco-growing region, with a view to creating her own vegan and organic prosecco with reduced sugar content.
Against all the odds and in the arcane, hierarchical male-dominated world of wine, two years later, Katherine has a hugely successful wine business - ThinK Wine Group - distributing her healthy wines across the UK. She has recently caught the eye of the producers of Amazon Prime's forthcoming reality show, The Social Movement in which young CEOs come together to compete and find solutions to global social problems.
She still can't believe she's travelling to Miami to film this June and will have her face on a billboard all over the city! An extraordinary tale of triumph over adversity, Katherine launched ThinK Wine in September 2019 intending to distribute through stockists across London and the UK. She quickly switched her business model during lockdown and began to sell online, initially packaging and selling from her home, and over the last year her business has gone from strength to strength to deliver vegan prosecco to the nation.
