For Louis, “flavor variation” is fundamental. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, he apprenticed at Napa Valley’s iconic The French Laundry, later launching a catering business and his own wine label.
After dipping his toes into corporate finance, Louis pivoted to pursue his passion: cooking. Following five years as chef and restaurant manager at Glen Ellen Star, he was exploring new creative directions when he met Graham.
The perfect blend, Graham develops VIVIC’s artisan flavors while Louis brainstorms innovative enhancements, such as using licorice root as a healthy alternative sweetener.
Farmer, vintner, chef, caffeinator. The art and science of ready-to-drink sparkling coffee flows distinctively from Louis’ versatile hands.
