wondryChaz and Whitney Gates give the Sharks a taste of Wondry, their unique wine company, in Shark Tank episode 1408. Wondry wines, unlike traditional wines, aren’t made from grapes, they’re made from fruit and they have twice the alcohol content of “regular” wine. They come in a variety of flavors including peach, apple, mango and more.

Whitney grew up watching her uncle make wine out of all sorts of fruits and even vegetables like corn. She knew she wanted to be a wine maker, so she studied the craft at Grayson College in Texas. Whitney spent the first 12 years of her career in brand management positions for companies like Kimberly Clark, Nestle, Coca Cola and Keurig/Dr. Pepper. She went all in on Wondry in July, 2021. Chaz is the COO of the company and he still works as legal counsel for Texas Instruments.

They started Wondry during the Covid-19 pandemic, which was a bit of a challenge. They do all the wine making, bottling and shipping from their facility in the Dallas area. All their products are organic and bottles run from $15-$25. They were able to get distribution a few months after they started up in Dallas area Target and Total Wine stores. The company has a conscience too: with every purchase they “make a donation to under-represented entrepreneurs, as they help bring their communities one step closer to unity & inclusion.” They likely want a Shark to help them expand nationally.

Wondry Shark Tank Recap

Chaz and Whitney will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner and guest Shark Peter Jones that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Wondry will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
