Our Story

Meet Greg & Darcie Loudon

Owners Greg and Darcie LoudonAfter spending decades in the time-intensive world of advertising and illustration, I decided to slow things down and re-evaluate what was most important. My wife Darcie and I had several soul-searching conversations and decided to find something that could nurture our spirits. We discussed starting a business together —

Something close to home that is both creative and fun. That something turned out to be Bottle and Bottega. After a fantastic night out at a nearby Bottle and Bottega, we fell in love with the experience and the possibilities for a new and exciting future.

Let us help you set up a private event that is sure to be memorable and fun! Or simply sign up for one of our public events. We look forward to creating an experience for you to remember!
