Featured: Distillers Jenny and Mike Griffo of Griffo Distillery

Meet Jenny and Mike Griffo, owners of Griffo Distillery in Petaluma, California. It was a sunny August afternoon in 2008. Michael and Jenny were discussing what kind of a life they wanted to build together. They wanted Michael to be able to utilize his PhD in physics and knack for innovation. Jenny wanted to finally work locally and develop a business that was a part of the community.  And they knew they wanted to be a part of the movement back to creating things with intention and love and responsibility. From that, Griffo Distillery was born. In our latest Cultivated in Sonoma County profile, Jenny and Mike talk about what brought them to Sonoma County, and share about the incredible community they've found here.
