SPE CIAL AD VER TISING SE CTION ENTERPRISING WOMEN 2014 Jessica N. Granatiero Owner The Savory Grape & The Savory Affair Event Planning A passion for wine and an entrepreneurial spirit led Jessica Granatiero to establish the boutique wine and spirits shop called The Savory Grape. Her travels throughout the US and Europe lend inspiration to the design and management of the unique retail and online operation, which has received recognition by The Wall Street Journal , Wine Spectator , Rhode Island Monthly magazine, Providence Journal and Providence Business News (PBN) . Wine and brew pairings, wine clubs, online ordering and shipping and corporate gift giving have established the shop as a regular destination and authority on wine. “Whether its an inexpensive or collectible wine or single malt scotch, the shop offers a cozy environment that many liken to a bookstore.” Granatiero recently launched a new company The Savory Affair Event Planning & Design, a business born from her passion and knowledge of bringing people together and for all things food and wine. The Savory Affair manages corporate and social events. Granatiero has received the ‘Top 40 Under 40’ award by PBN which honors the region’s most successful people under forty years of age. 1000 Division Street, Unit 120, East Greenwich phone: 401-886-9463 (WINE) twitter: @TheSavoryGrape ~ thesavorygrape.com, thesavoryaffair.com ~ jessica@thesavorygrape.com Amanda J.
