Black Winemakers and Black-Owned Wineries

Lack of diversity in the wine industry is a problem. Wine is best when shared, and the ongoing lack of representation at all levels of the industry makes that difficult, perpetuating harmful stereotypes and making wine spaces hostile to anyone who isn't a white male. This makes it all the more important to seek out and celebrate the brave and talented people who have carved out a space for themselves in the world of wine.

So in honor of Black History Month, on Wednesday, February 21 from 4pm to 7pm, we'll be showcasing wines from black-owned wineries and/or made by black winemakers. These are wines that we are proud to have on the shelves and the tasting bar all year round because they are excellent wines, but this seemed like an opportune moment to remind you that there is another excellent reason to care about them.

We feel it is important to spotlight the work of these artisans, because by doing so, not only do we help them thrive, but we show others that there is room in the industry for anyone and everyone who has a passion for wine. This is an ongoing project for us, and we are actively seeking out more great wines from BIPOC-owned wineries to bring into the shop. We look forward to sharing them with you.

Tickets for our regular Wednesday tastings are $15, and the wines in the lineup are all 10% off during the tasting.
