Mother-and-daughter business partners Ana and Marcela Hernandez started making olive oil as a hobby after they discovered an olive grove on their St. Helena property. When they had an opportunity to acquire Grove 45 and go into the olive oil business, Ana and Marcela were introduced to the bank that would help make it possible: First Republic. Whether it was for their business or personal banking needs, their banker gave them a level of support and encouragement they’d never come across before. The Bank’s can-do attitude aligns with Ana and Marcela’s energy and vision, and they’re eager to keep building on their dreams with the help of this strong partnership.
