My Story

Meet Joni Marsch

Owner Joni MarschMy husband has to get most of the credit here—he was the one who first introduced me to Bottle & Bottega! He arranged a surprise date for us on a weeknight and asked me to drive from the suburbs into the city. I was skeptical as to what he had up his sleeve, but when we walked into the Bottle & Bottega studio, I was blown away. I couldn’t believe that my Accounting/Finance- minded husband (with no artistic or creative bone in his body) had found such a unique and creative date night for us. We both had an outstanding time painting, drinking our favorite wine, enjoying great music and meeting new people!

After years in a corporate setting, I decided that opening a Bottle & Bottega studio was my opportunity to fulfill my dream of owning my own business. To me, Bottle & Bottega offers a unique, creative and social outlet for people to reconnect in a busy and ever-focused world. It is the union between this and the grassroots community focus that makes me so excited to share the concept with the Portland area!
