About Digress Wine

Digress Wine was founded in College Park, Orlando in 2017 by wine industry veterans Rob Chase and Brian Kerney. We’re a casual & welcoming neighborhood wine bar & bottle shop that champions artisanal producers from around the world via curiosity, education, and good ol' fashioned hospitality. We love making the world of wine more relatable and enjoyable for everyone that walks in the door, whether they're a brand new face or a beloved regular. We also love making the experience one that's completely customizable; with our wine cellar space, garden patio, and indoor bistro area, we've hosted everything from bridal showers to birthday dinners to corporate meetings to private wine tastings...essentially...if you can dream it, we can do it! In fact, we feel that in the presence of good friends and fine wine, and in the midst of our hectic 21st century lives, it's never been more important to reconnect to the creative impulses within all of us, and share that directly with one another in the spirit of fun and friendship. But I Digress!

About Downtown CREDO

Downtown CREDO is a social enterprise benefit corporation committed to inspiring the pursuit of meaning, impact and community. We are instigated by our CREDO that says…
Life is worth living. I refuse to merely exist. I pursue a life of meaning and purpose, fulfillment and joy. The world is not yet as it ought to be. Neither is my city. Neither am I. Yet, I reject apathy and despair. I engage the world, my city, and myself to make an impact for good. I am not alone. I press through narcissism, isolation and self-sufficiency striving to live in authentic community.
Downtown CREDO coffee operates three name-your-price coffee shops and carefully roasts coffee for select wholesale partners. CREDO Conduit has grown into a porous society of companies and individuals committed to the notion that our work gets better when we come alongside people who’re different from us.
