We had the good fortune of connecting with Ronnie Sing and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ronnie, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting Adnorel Wines was primarily impromptu and sudden. It was something I had brieftly thought about prior to the pandemic but the pandemic really catalyzed it for me. Like many others who were furloughed, I had to tap into my bag of talents to find a way to help keep my family thriving. We didn’t know when or how things were going to turn out. Luckily that same idea for starting my own wine company, began to bubble again instantly just as it once did before, only this time the need was a little more compelling. My husband, who is also my marketing manager, began to research, email and make calls daily. A year later in 2021 we were able to launch Adnorel Wines and I’m so glad we did.
What should our readers know about your business?
A little about my business: I took a risk at a really tough time; in the midst of a pandemic when income was unpredictable. I took a chance on my company Adnorel Wines and to my amazement, it did really well and continues to thrive. The back story, however wasn’t easy, it took a lot of research, conversations and funding out of my own pocket. But, as they say you have to invest in yourself and it takes money to make money and I haven’t felt so strongly about this until now. With this I learned more about myself and how to stay the course and trust the process as they say. I believe that everyone has a special talent or “secret sauce,” it’s just up to you to find yours and perfect it. I’m so thankful that I found mine, and my brand: Adnorel, is one of my babies, so I’m doing everything I can to make it amazing and unforgettable.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
LOL. This question is so fitting for the city of Atlanta because there is so many amazing things to do. Our day would have to start off with brunch at one of the many brunch spots in the city because you can’t start your day off without falling in the bushes first. LOL My favorite two to date would be Breakfast at Barney’s or The Hive Buckhead. Of course we’d do a little shopping and head to Jeju Sauna for some relaxation. Pedal Pub Atlanta, Spin Art Atlanta or the Trap Museum would probably be next on the list and to cap the night off, I’d definitely head where it’s grown and sexy, so Nene Leakes’ Linnethia Lounge is a must. And according to how brunch goes, these other activities may need to take place over the span of several days because Atlanta bartenders are the bomb. LOL
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I most importantly would like to thank my life partner and significant other Danton for his continuous efforts in making this business amazing. Not only is he the marketing manager for my company Adnorel Wines, but his endless support and encouragement has kept me in the game when I’ve wanted to call it quits. Not to mention, he rocks daddy duty when it comes to me having last minute engagements and wine tastings. With that being said, I’d also like to give a major shoutout to my babies who keep me grounded and hungry for more: MarLee, Daniir and Leidan y’all rock!
