Copa Di Vino: Small Town Roots, Big Time Dreams
James Martin, the CEO and driving force behind Copa Di Vino, was faced with a problem. The Dalles was in a slump; the once bustling town was facing tough economic hurdles. James, though, made an unofficial pledge to this community to keep his dreams for the company in his hometown. That is when the decision was made to buy the historic but crumbling Sunshine Mill, right in the heart of The Dalles. The mill needed a lot of work, but James and his family were devoted to the task of making this the home of Copa Di Vino.
