Stone Castle Vineyards & Winery

Stone Castle Vineyards & Winery is reportedly the leading winery in Kosovo. Yet the label continues to work towards forging a path in this Balkan wine region to elevate it alongside some of Europe’s more renowned wine appellations. Much like visionary winemaker Robert Mondavi, as known for leading California wine to world-class status, Stone Castle’s Rrustem Gecaj has brought his unwavering belief in the region’s viticultural potential, considerable business acumen, and love for his homeland to put Kosovo on the international wine map.

In 2006, the Gecaj family acquired what was formerly a large, state-owned winery known as “NBI Rahoveci,” which the Yugoslavian government built in 1953. Rrustem Gecaj renamed it Stone Castle Vineyards & Winery, and along with his extended family — specifically his sons Avni and Avdi — he passionately committed to revitalizing a fertile agricultural region that boasts a 2,000-year history of winemaking. All of Stone Castle’s wines are made from estate-grown grapes from the heart of the Rahovec Valley, known locally as the “Tuscany of Kosovo.” To date, the Gecaj family has received more than 100 international awards for their wines and has succeeded in expanding distribution to other markets in the Balkans, Western Europe, Africa, and now the U.S.

Every Man Jack

Founder Ritch Viola started Every Man Jack in his San Francisco garage over a decade ago. Back in 2007, men’s grooming products were either too expensive or formulated with harmful chemicals–that’s when he knew there had to be a better way. After collaborating with manufacturers that specialized in formulating products with clean ingredients, Every Man Jack was born.

With much success from partnering with well-known retailers like Target, Whole Foods, CVS and Walmart, the team’s life changed for the better. From packing up orders in the garage day and night, Viola’s children even jumped in loading up shipments on the weekends, to help out the family business. The brand is currently offering free shipping on all $50.00+ orders from its website.

The product’s THC is below 0.01%, so you will not get high from consuming these great lozenges.
