Shannon Staglin and Artie Johnson met in 2012 at a Staglin wine luncheon at the River Oyster Bar in Miami. They realized rather quickly they were meant to be together, and Artie moved to Napa the following summer. Shannon began in the family wine business as a harvest intern in 2001, earned her MBA from UC Davis in 2008 and is currently the president of the Staglin Family Vineyard.
Artie's interest in wine began while working at Nobu in Manhattan and progressed to running wine programs at some of Miami's top restaurants, including the Versace Mansion. After working with the Harlan organization and Mayacamas Vineyards, Artie now produces his own wines under the Le Artishasic label.
Artie and Shannon were married in 2015 and were soon blessed with their daughter, Sicily, and then their son, Arthur Ill. Together, with a shared passion for wine and entertaining, they carry Staglin Family Vineyard and Le Artishasic into the next generation.
