Collaborating with nature & cultivating community since 2010


Rae in barrel room


One of few female winemakers in Texas, Rae Wilson is a food & wine industry veteran based in Austin. Her journey from sommelier to winemaker took her from Napa Valley to Portugal and many cellars in between. She founded Wine For the People in 2010 and released her flagship vintage in 2014, utilizing sustainable practices, minimal intervention winemaking, and a dedication to explore true Texas terroir.  See press for more..

“People often feel overwhelmed or intimidated by wine. Making wine more accessible in any setting is really important to me. Winemaking is a fascinating process, one I find endlessly interesting. We can talk about the details of origin, history, and climate, but enjoying wine can also be as simple as ‘Do you like it? Great!’. You don’t have to study it or know a secret language to have a full experience.”
