The Creators

Lisa Donneson, Founder & Proprietor

Lisa founded Bouké and Bouquet wines after a career on Wall Street. She turned her wine sipping skills into a diploma when she attended the Wine and Spirits Education Trust, then into a winery in 2007. A member of the Long Island Wine Council and New York Women’s Culinary and Alliance and an annual wine judge for Global Traveler’s Wines on the Wing airline wine survey, Lisa lives in Brooklyn New York with her husband (they met grape-picking in the Tuscan hills), and they have two daughters in college. Besides sipping, Lisa loves to cook, play music and ride her bicycle.
