There is time for meaningful connection with Adam Vandoski, Indianapolis

November 11, 2021

So often we rush through meals but Adam Vandoski hopes to make eating a shared experience again with his company the Vine Society. 

“If you’re going to eat, it might as well be delicious and with people that you love.” That’s Adam’s philosophy. He believes there’s a way to eat in a way that nourishes both your body and your soul. To achieve that, his company provides good food and wine, encouraging people to be purposeful and present with their friends and family. 

With that same philosophy, dinner at Adam’s house is centered around being engaged. How does he find new ways to put in that effort? By making Zero Excuses and getting creative. Listen and learn how you can, too.
