Our STORY

we create wines you love that won't break the bank

The AV Collection started with a single idea of putting an ultra-premium sparkling wine in a can. As a group of avid sports fans, concert goers and lake junkies, we felt the taste of fine wine shouldn’t be compromised simply because of environment. Enter: Kaycee Mac Sparkling Rosé and Sparkling Blanc – personified by a strong, independent female of the Jazz Age along with a subtle nod to our Kansas City roots and its incredible Jazz history. Our goal was to create the best sparkling wine in a can that can be enjoyed on its own or in cocktails with the ultimate goal of empowering people, promoting diversity, reducing waste and giving back to the arts communities around the world. And, OH MAN, did the finished product exceed our expectations!

Expanding on this idea, we wanted to introduce a bottled line of classically-made wine from major wine regions around the world at approachable prices. Starting with a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, our Violette Rose line will be released in the Fall of 2020.

Our ownership team consists of a Certified Sommelier, Keith, and two enthusiastic wine lovers, Kelly and Blair. We felt the importance of blending an industry expert’s opinion and palate with those who love wine easier to achieve our mission of making incredible wine that is approachable for all walks of life. In short, we are just a group of friends from Kansas City who have a passion for incredible wine that we want to share with world.
