L’uva Bella, Ohio’s Largest Winery Acquired by Millennial Investors  

L’uva Bella, the largest winery by volume in the state of Ohio, has been acquired by Marisa Sergi, 26, and Evan Schumann, 25, through their investment fund, S’quared Holdings.

The winery, based in Poland Township, primarily produces bulk wine for private label and retail channels. It also makes a range of grape and other fruit juice products.

The financial details of the transaction have not been disclosed, but the price paid by S’quared Holdings is believed to be “in the mid seven-figure range”.

The winery was founded 15 years ago by Sergi’s father, Frank. Marisa is a third-generation winemaker and already produces wine under the RedHead Wine label, which is distributed in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, with plans to also launch in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee.

She said she hopes to add further product lines to the winery’s range, as well as branch into organic wine and extend distribution into five to 10 more states.

“We’ll also be implementing innovative partnerships and plan to hire six to 15 more people in the next three to five years,” she said. “We are willing to bet on ourselves, our team, and our community despite the challenging current environment. We believe we can build a bright and prosperous future for our company and our employees by continuing to produce great products and to go above and beyond to make our customers happy.”

Her business partner, Evan Schumann, studied entrepreneurship and finance at university and is member of the fifth generation of his family’s business, Ohio-based metal refinery Schumann & Co. He is the founder of Zitek Corporation and management consulting firm Matrix Growth Ventures, and has also worked for Magnus International and PrintCB.

One Billion Steps Challenge for Breast Cancer Research! [Breast Cancer Society of Canada]

For nearly 30 years, thousands of walkers have joined us at our Annual Mother’s Day Walks, powered by Cleo. This year, things are different, so rather than getting together, we’re inviting everyone to take part in the One Billion Steps Challenge for Breast Cancer Research every day in May.

“It’s an opportunity to do something good for yourself while doing something to help prevent 14 Canadian women from dying of breast cancer every day,” said Kimberly Carson, CEO of the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. She continues, “It’s important now more than ever to remain active for both our physical and mental health. We encourage everyone to get active throughout May – and to get your steps in however it’s right for you. You can be inside in your living room, or in your backyard – wherever it is safe for you.”

Together We Will Reach One Billion Steps!

Everyone is invited to register at mothersdaywalk.ca and have their steps count towards the One Billion Steps Goal! We have some great exercise videos and incentives to motivate everyone to get active throughout May – whether walking, stepping, exercising or dancing.

Challenge your family, friends and colleagues!

Stay active all throughout May! Our mobile app will track your ranking against the entire pool of participants, and you can share your achievements on your social media channels.

There is no cost to join and we have incentives for everyone who raises more than $50 in donations.

Register today at mothersdaywalk.ca

Before May 1, we will send you the mobile app (iPhone and Android) that will track your steps from May 1- 31.

CEO of Cleo, Lisa Hryciuk is taking the One Billion Steps Challenge, challenging her colleagues to do 20,000 steps every day in May. “It’s a big goal, but there’s work to do – more than 26,000 Canadians are diagnosed with breast cancer every year! Cleo is proud to have supported the Breast Cancer Society of Canada and its mission to save lives through breast cancer research for 18 years.”

The Breast Cancer Society of Canada has partnered with GenWin to provide the One Billion Steps Challenge. “Once registered, participants will receive a link to download a mobile app which will track steps and fundraising progress. It’s easy to invite friends and family to support you or to challenge them to participate,” said Moody Hashem, CEO of GenWin.

We’re challenging all Canadians to join the One Billion Steps Challenge to help save lives through breast cancer research!
