Bravery Wines

FEB 15 2021 Corey and Jennifer Christman at Bravery Wines

A Johnstown couple has started a company that brings together two things they hold very near and dear to their hearts – excellent wine and military veterans.

U.S. Air Force veteran and retired Special Agent Corey Christman and his wife, Jennifer, started Bravery Wines in 2020 and plan to donate at least $2 of every bottle sold to Yellow Ribbon Fund, a veteran service organization that supports injured service members and their caregivers.

Corey says he started making wine 10 years ago, crafting small batches in his garage. But he dreamed of bigger and better things and pursued a degree in winemaking education at Washington State University. He then did an internship at Anthony Road Wine Company in Penn Yan, New York, where he worked with owners, John and Ann Martini, and head winemaker, Peter Becraft.

Corey was so impressed with Anthony Road Wine Company, its owners and Becraft that, when he and Jennifer married on Veterans Day in 2017, they did so at the winery.
