Since its inception, Ayesha and Sydel have rooted Domaine Curry in the values exuded by the woman in Proverbs 31 of the Bible – sisterhood, empowerment, legacy, and self-determination. This passage inspired their brand ethos, referred to as Femme 31, which is now symbolically represented as a steadfast, eternally burning lamp on the new Domaine Curry packaging.
The heart of Domaine Curry is a celebration of the strong women who have shaped the Curry family's heritage, honoring Ayesha and Sydel’s mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and daughters, as well as generations to come. The initial seed of inspiration for Domaine Curry arrived during a family dinner in 2015, where Ayesha gave a birthday toast for Sydel’s mom, Sonya. As she described her wonderful mother-in-law, many of the attributes she praised were similar to those of the robust red wine she held in her hand: strength and structure balanced with softness, openness, and approachability. The dream was born: in that moment, they recognized the project that would tap into their shared passion for wine while honoring the elegant & powerful women in their lives.
Domaine Curry wines are meticulously crated in homage to the incredible women in our lives. We hope you'll join the celebration.
