The Team

Madeline Puckette

Co-Founder, Content Director, Ball of Energy

I develop Wine Folly’s content as well as all the illustrations and infographics on the site. I’m a certified sommelier with Court of Masters Sommelier and author of NYT Bestselling book: Wine Folly: The Essential Guide to Wine. You can read more about me.

Ben Andrews

Operations, Marketing, Iron Man

I am chief dad. I inspire everyone to do the right thing. I also make sure nothing falls out of the boat! (Particularly small children.)


Happiness Facilitator

“A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.” For personalized service with products, orders, shipping, wholesale inquiries or if you have questions or comments, it’s my job to make Wine Folly customers happy.

Phil Keeling

Marketing Coordinator, Wordsmith, Galley Cook

I throw words at the walls of Wine Folly’s marketing materials and social media until something sticks, like a verbal fistful of spaghetti. I also write jokes, plays, and the occasional diatribe.

Justin Hammack

Co-Founder, Advisor, Cat-Herder

I’m an entrepreneur, vegetarian foodie, coffee addict, ex-pro PC gamer, lover of cult movies, and driver of insane turbo-2.0L. I am otherwise a herder of cats.

Ashley Sara DeKam


Language is beautiful when it communicates simply. This is my specialty, along with creating amazingly gorgeous food and wine pairings. Epicurean mastery is my love language, and words are my creative canvas of expression.
