Revelshine, producers of world-class, adventure ready wine, is proud to announce its impressive list of co-founders that include some of the top athletes and influencers within the action and outdoor community. Founded on the belief that great wine should be enjoyed wherever you feel most alive, Revelshine revolutionized the wine industry by bottling their three varietals of premium wine in unbreakable and infinitely recyclable aluminum bottles. The ability to now responsibly enjoy a glass of wine in the mountains, on the beach, or around the campfire has garnered the attention of some of the biggest names within our industry.

Revelshine’s team of athlete co-founders include Chris Davenport, Emily Harrington, Adrian Ballinger, Vasu Sojitra, Michelle Parker, Jeremy Jones, Shane Dorian, Sage Erickson, Selema Masekela, and the Gudauskas brothers – Patrick, Dane, and Tanner.

Jake Bilbro, founder of Revelshine and avid outdoor enthusiast himself, describes his excitement to work alongside some of the most recognizable names in the  industry. “What does one even say about partnering with these amazing athletes? Pinch me! The fact they are forefronts and leaders of the outdoor industry is a given. What most impresses me, however, is their joy not only for their craft, but the beautiful world they play in.” says Bilbro. “They so perfectly epitomize the reason to celebrate in the outdoors. I am beyond grateful for their partnership, and I look forward to many epic days and subsequent glasses of wine as we bring world class wine to the outdoor community.” 

For the athletes, joining the Revelshine team as co-founders means more than getting into the wine business. They see an opportunity to join a company that is dedicated to sustainability and responsible business practices. From end to end, Revelshine’s business model is rooted in ethical and organic farming, recyclable packaging, and intentional giveback partnerships – which include 1% for the Planet, Protect Our Winters, and Changing Tide Foundation. 

“My brothers, Patrick, Tanner and I, are so stoked to be co-founders of a brand that is all about getting outdoors and sharing these experiences! We love each and every time we have the opportunity to enjoy Revelsine together after a surf, a hike or bike ride, or a backyard BBQ with friends and family!” says Dane Gudauskas.
