For many years, Ron and Brandy Parks wanted to find a business they could build and operate together. Then, with the help of some wonderful friends, they finally found one based upon a mutual interest – wine. In July 2017, they started their very own wine business through WineShop At Home. Now they've embarked on a new journey down the wine road to achieve "The Grape Life."
Ron and Brandy have been married for almost 25 years and have two adult children, Rachel and Ryan. For over 20 years, they've lived in the San Antonio area. They currently reside in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, northwest of the small town of Helotes.
A native of Pennsylvania, Ron completed a 30-year career with the National Security Agency in 2017. The very same year, he graduated from Liberty University with an Master's in Leadership. Ron hopes to leverage both his experience and knowledge of leadership to quickly build a successful team of Wine Consultants. He's also a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and a proud supporter of America's Mighty Warriors, the primary beneficiary of WineShop At Home's corporate philanthropy. His favorite white wine is Verdelho and his favorite red wine is Pinot Noir.
Brandy is an accomplished artist and interior designer. She has worked in a variety of positions, from nursing to sales associate at The Home Depot and Lowe's. She's also done contract work, painting beautiful faux finishes for homes and offices throughout the Texas Hill Country - some of the homes worth over a million dollars! A native of Oklahoma, Brandy is currently pursuing a degree in Architecture from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Her favorite white wine is Chardonnay and her favorite red wine is Zinfandel.
