Wanderlust Wine Co. was founded in 2013 Sammy Lam during his travels with Semester at Sea and OIV MSc. The native Texan wanted to combine his two passions, Travel and Wine, into a wine concept that could also make a positive change in the world. The project took 6 years to come to fruition, and below is a quick summary of the story of Wanderlust Wine Co. and the Wine Cowboy behind it.
In 2018, Lam moved to Austin to start Wanderlust Wine Co. and discovered an abandoned warehouse right in the heart of the city. The revitalization project helped preserve a historic building in downtown Austin and brought forth value for a part of town that was under appreciated. During this period, Lam helped legalize the use of self-dispensing technology for alcohol in Texas, and partnered with PourMyBeer to build what was is now known as The World’s Largest Self-Pour Wine on Tap Winery, a title which is currently being processed by the Guinness World Records committee.
