Old World Gourmet, OWG, is an upscale food and beverage company that started in 2001 after De’Anna Sullivan and her husband had a lengthy Sunday afternoon chat.  They suddenly realized that they had absolutely no time together because of their careers.  They talked it over, made some plans and turned in their 2 week notices the next day.  De’Anna knew she wanted to do something on her own.

De’Anna always had a passion for making and mixing new drinks and flavors. The wheels began to turn quickly in her head as Old World Gourmet was evolving right before her eyes! She slowly began experimenting with products like lemonade mix, sweet tea and hot chocolate. She knew the company needed that one sure thing that would set them apart from any other gift company on the market. Thus, the freezing wine concept was born!

The frozen drink idea came when she was putting together new recipes to increase the product line.  Freezing wine was a totally OUT OF THE BOX concept! Red wines are served between 50-65 degrees depending on variety, and white wine is typically served between 43-48 degrees again depending on variety which is well above the freezing mark! She started blending together items until she reached the flavor profiles that she fell in love with. OWG and the Vinolicious line of frozen wine mixers are born.

De’Anna always says, “If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would still be coming to my office every day creating new and unique items!”
