Shannon is the owner of Barrel & Vine wine shop in Cohasset. Prior to embarking on her journey of entrepreneurship, she had spent her career in the wonderful world of accounting, starting at PricewaterhouseCoopers after graduating from the honors program at Boston College. She then went on to spend 10 years in various accounting & finance roles at Eze Castle Software (then ConvergEx, later Eze Software Group) including spending 2 years in London where she discovered her passion for wine. After giving birth to her 2nd son, she decided she needed a change of pace and joined CFGI as the VP of Finance before finally deciding to give in to her years-long desire to open her own wine shop. Vine Bar is the combination of Shannon’s & her husband’s, Joe (the chef of the family), dreams.
Joe’s day job is as the Chief Accounting Officer of Indigo AG – an agricultural technology company seeking to revolutionize sustainable farming practices. Joe graduated from Babson College & also began his career at PwC (where he met Shannon on the first day of training). The 2 years spent in London reinforced his love of travel & the culinary delights that only travel can offer. While Shannon will focus on the wine side of the business, Joe will offer his creative input on the menu as well as helping with various administrative aspects (like creating situationally-appropriate music play lists).
