Cannonball Wine Company
Israeli born and raised Yoav Gilat (‘06CBS EMBA) was never one to follow convention. After 4 years in hospitality, 3 years of Law School in the UK and 3 years of practice, Yoav decided to change course and follow his entrepreneurial drive alongside his passion for food and wine.
In 2006 he launched Cannonball Wine Company, founded on the philosophy that wine, like life, is best enjoyed when shared. Bucking the old convention that wine should be serious, the approachable Cannonball inner child spirit and an iconic label quickly became contagious, capturing hearts and palates worldwide.
With great momentum and a desire to offer more selection, Yoav created Angels & Cowboys, wines that ‘indulge the lover, the trailblazer and the rule breaker’ in all of us.
Yoav launched an import component to the company in 2012 when he partnered with award - winning Astrolabe Wines from Marlborough, New Zealand as their exclusive U.S. agent. 2014 brought an adventurous collaboration with two iconic Napa winemakers and the launch of limited production High Dive, a 'Left Bank' Bordeaux blend from Napa Valley. Today, the company is aptly named SHARE A SPLASH wine co., in celebration of Yoav’s tireless passion to ‘share a splash’ of his wines with the world! SHARE A SPLASH wine co. wines are present in 47 states and 30 export markets.
