Betty Cohen Betty Cohen Founder (CEO)

A Member of Grapevine's Family since Friday, March 1st 1991

Betty Cohen was born and raised in Asheboro, NC. She started out her professional career at the CIA in Langley, Virginia. After meeting and marrying her husband Joel Cohen, they had two children and moved to the Bronx, New York. There, Joel got a job with Schenley Industries, doing national advertising for wine and liquor brands, and Betty became a stay at home mom.

The Cohen family then moved to Lakewood, New Jersey and had a third son, where Betty remained a stay at home mom. To be closer to her family Betty, Joel and their three boys moved back to North Carolina, where Joel worked for Dreyfus Ashby Inc. as a Vice President and Partner; with the job duty of marketing fine wines in the Southeast, and Betty began to teach preschool.

After her three boys were all off to college, Betty, with the mentorship of her husband opened Grapevine Distributors. This distributorship had been a dream of theirs ever since they lived in New York. This dream was forged by her love to travel. While her husband had worked for Schenley Industries, Betty got to travel the world, visiting such places as the Bahamas for commercial shoots and for the Cruzan Rum that Joel was producing. While working with Dreyfus Ashby, Betty got to travel to wine regions such as Spain and South Africa. These trips inspired both Betty and Joel to make their dream a reality.
