iJerkyGuy

In 2014, Ryan Rickey was looking for a way to make some extra income.  It didn’t take him long to decide to sell jerky at the farmer’s markets in Portland, OR. Thinking it would be catchy and easy to remember Ryan chose the name iJerkyGuy, after everyone called him “the jerky guy”.

After vending at a couple local festivals, Ryan wanted to try out bigger venues.  For a year and a half, he traveled further away from Portland. By the fall of 2015, he went to sell at The Texas State Fair, where he met Guillermina Moncada, who became his wife and business partner.

What started as just being neighbors at the fair, quickly grew into a deeper friendship for Ryan and Guillermina.  They realized that they were both solo entrepreneurs that could complement and accompany each other.  Together they started a new business adventure, combining their talents, and different backgrounds.

Today, they spend most of their time learning how to improve their business, looking for better venues, and growing as a new family.

Red Wing Dove Winery & Vineyard

Red Wing Dove is a new addition to the Texas Wine & Rogue Art Fest as of 2017!

Red Wing Dove Vineyard was conceived in Plano Texas with Pinot Blanc and Shiraz vines thriving in the back yard.  The small Inca dove was the inspiration for the name from the cinnamon red color underside of the wings which can be observed during flight hence the name “Red Wing Dove”.  Discussing plans for retirement led to the proposition of a vineyard.  Approximately eighty acres of land for the vineyard was purchased in July 2004 in Hamilton County which incidentally is the Dove Capital of Texas.
