1980 Alumna Gina Trippi’s Wine Shop Profiled by the Wall Street Journal

Susan Gina Trippi, J.D. ’80, was profiled in the Wall Street Journal for her wine shop, MetroWines.  The October 20 piece is titled In Asheville, Home to Craft Beer, a Wine Scene Rises.  Trippi opened Metro Wines in 2013 with her husband, John Kerr.

Ms. Trippi and her husband, John Kerr,moved to Asheville three years ago from Washington, D.C., where she was an attorney and he was a financial analyst. Changing careers as well as location, they opened Metro Wines. Ms. Trippi said her husband already knew a great deal about wine but added that they had to work particularly hard because “we’re a wine shop in a beer town.”
