Happy Holidays Everyone! I am so excited to present this 2020 Holiday Gift Guide to you featuring Black-Owned Businesses! As many of you know I am a wine enthusiast and have been blogging about wine for years hence the wine section of my blog. This year I also pursued my first wine certification and I am happy to report that I passed the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 2 course with Distinction!
Supporting Black winemakers and wine businesses has always been important to me. I have written several blog posts about Black winemakers or should I say trailblazers over the years like Andre Hueston Mack of Maison Noir Wines and House of Mandela Wines. A few years ago the blog post on Black History Month wine tasting of Black Owned Wineries was read and shared by hundreds. And this year I curated a list of over 45 Black-Owned Wineries and Businesses You Should Support. I plan to update this list in February because there are so many more around the world!
This all led to a collaboration with Ashlee of Will Drink for Travel. I have known Ashlee for years. She is a cocktail enthusiast and a mixologist. Ashlee has the most comprehensive list of over 100 Black-Owned Spirit Brands To Support available online. It is really incredible. She also has an awesome YouTube channel in which she interviews the owners and makes cocktails.
We decided to put together a Holiday Gift Guide of Black-Owned Businesses with items to compliment the wine and spirits on our lists. These items include mixers, glassware, decor, glassware, books, food, apparel, candles, charcuterie and many other items you can use to entertain in your home and even plan gourmet picnics outside of your home! There are over 60 Black-Owned Businesses included in this gift guide. We hope you will take the time to support them.
This Holiday Gift Guide was made in a beautiful magazine style with clickable links throughout. The titles and photos within the guide are clickable and take you directly to the business owner’s site. Be sure to enlarge the gift guide to get the full effect. AND please be sure to share it with friends and family!
