Meet the Krewe

Passion for our wine and spirits store, diversity of experience and love for each other defines the Krewe. Grande Krewe contributes to the culture of New Orleans for locals and visitors alike. Our wine store dogs Deuce and Pearl welcome all dogs too. They get a dog treat rather than a glass of wine.

Jane Cooper has been a resident New Orleanian since 1985. She, like many, visited the city once and decided to move to New Orleans. Milwaukee, Wisconsin is now only her birthplace—not home. She has made a career of helping people navigate healthcare and insurance. Jane is very passionate about her lifetime work and is just as passionate about wine.

Roy Arriola

Loves: Bourbon


Roy Arriola is a native New Orleanian. Born and raised in the historic Treme neighborhood of New Orleans, Roy has witnessed the many evolutions of our Marigny and Treme neighborhoods. He enjoys wine and wants to provide a vehicle for each Grande Krewe customer to learn something new about wine. Roy wants to share with his neighbors—old and new.

Loves: Napa Cabs


Bob Heaps, also from Milwaukee, immediately fell in love with the great city of New Orleans his first visit here. Since officially becoming a resident, Bob, better known as ‘Roberto’ has worked tirelessly to make the Grande Krewe wine store concept a REALITY. And…wait until you attend a Roberto-hosted tasting! It’s a fun learning experience with GOOD wine.
