      The Wine Dispensary: 

      Somewhat mischievous, but mostly curious, his interest in wine started at a young age when Rob snuck sips of his mother’s jug wine.  After moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career behind the scenes in the music and entertainment industry, Rob was fortunate to find himself participating in industry meetings and events where fine wine was an intricate part of the performing atmosphere.  It was then that Rob’s slight interest turned into a love and then quickly into a passion for the creation, appreciation and enjoyment of wine.  Rob holds an Executive Sommelier certification and is a Master Sommelier Candidate.  He spends his time conducting wine tastings, speaking engagements and educational events.  “I am completely fascinated by the history and knowledge of wine and find joy in sharing it with others.” – Rob Mackenzie.

       

      Dice Candies:  

      Dice Candies began as an idea in 2009, after a fun game of Dungeons & Dragons with my regular group. Like all good ideas, it started with a Google search for existing products. To my dismay (and eventually my joy), the only options in stores and online for dice in chocolate were standard six-sided dice. "Of course," I thought to myself, since it is a simple shape and has a wide audience through gaming and casinos.

      I saw this as an opportunity and began exploring how to make molds. I knew nothing about molds, chocolate production, or sugar. I was a neophyte, but I was excited to learn. Over the next few months I tried a few different things, made a few test samples, and did some product testing by bringing them to my regular game.

      Interest was high and everyone had a lot of fun with the first versions of chocolate dice. Of course, life got in the way, and the project was shelved for a year as I concentrated on my day job and some of my web projects. It didn't resurface again until April 2011 when I left my day job to pursue personal projects and entrepreneurship. I sunk more money from my savings into exploring mold designs, testing sugar dice, and gathering more feedback on packaging options.  On November 28, 2011 the project went live on Kickstarter, a crowdfunding website. I had promoted the project on Reddit, and by the next morning I had already reached my funding goal of $950. The project was featured on the gaming website Kotaku, boosting up backers and funding beyond 200% within 2 days. I was elated, but it had only begun.

      In mid-December, Kickstarter featured the project as part of their weekly newsletter featuring 3 projects. Support skyrocketed, eventually reaching over 1700% funding. It changed from a simple project to what eventually became Dice Candies. An exciting adventure with a lot of future possibilities, a small project became a small business, rising out of a national recession on a dream and on the shoulders of people across the world.

      In 2014 Dice Candies began using modern 3d printing, combining it with standard methods of mold making to create in-house, affordable, custom chocolates for businesses and non-profits.
