A Million Reasons to Celebrate

When we set out to build our brand around a sustainable product, we couldn’t have imagined how quickly we’d reach a truly meaningful milestone: one million plastic bottles, repurposed and redirected from oceans and landfills, through #dsgoods.

As we calculated that company achievement, we realized there’d be no better place to celebrate what our community has done, together, than surrounded by the natural beauty of the Napa Valley foothills. So we gathered west coast style gurus and friends of the brand at the Carneros Resort and Spa for a memorable dinner—sipping, celebrating and soaking in our milestone.

During the weekend, we enjoyed lunch at Bottega, tastings at Cakebread Cellars and Gamble Family Vineyards, and a picture-perfect day before our celebration.

During the celebratory dinner Saturday night, we enjoyed an idyllic cocktail hour  and family-style dinner in the Carneros’ beautiful spaces with friends old and new, including Angela Tafoya of Lonny Magazine, Anh Sundstrom of @9to5chic and designer/style & travel guru Stacie Flinner.

We also shared a sneak peek at our new brand video celebrating our one-million-bottle mark, while looking forward to the next million.
