Our Story

Our Story James Davids (California native and traveling winemaker) and Marissa Stashenko (Massachusetts native, entrepreneur and marketer) left California in 2018 to build a winery in Providence, RI. Anchor and Hope produces and imports wines in collaboration with farmers and winemakers the team has worked with over the years. The vineyards are located in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York, California, Oregon and Germany. Quality, sustainability, and value are core to the brand alongside simple, truthful marketing. Anchor & Hope wines are currently available in retail shops and restaurants throughout RI, MA, ME, NY, CT and SC in kegs, cans and bottles. We will be launching in VT by summer of 2022.The company is at the forefront of modern packaging trends with their focus on packaging their wines into kegs and cans. Both of which are more sustainable, economical, and convenient than bottles in many situations.The tasting room will feature unique products made from locally grown grapes. These wines include sparkling wines like Piquette and Pétillant Natural, as well as still wines from both vinifera and hybrid varietals. The tasting room is an opportunity for the company to educate patrons on sustainable winemaking in a challenging climate for growing grapes.
