A few years ago, a friend attended a Black History Month wine tasting which featured black-owned wines. I loved this idea and asked her to write about it for the blog. Since then, I have made an effort to support black-owned wineries. I have discovered quite a few over the past few years. Therefore, I decided to do an updated blog post on black-owned wineries and businesses for 2020. This extraordinary list includes Black men and women of all ages from all over the world that are producing high quality wines.
This list of black-owned wineries & businesses also includes a few podcasts that feature black winemakers. Listening to podcasts is a great way to get familiar with these winemakers and their wines. In addition, if you enjoy attending wine events, check out the list at the end of this blog post. Plan a trip to one of these wine events that promote diversity & inclusion in the wine industry.
I am highlighting these black-owned wineries & businesses during Black History Month because many of these black winemakers are trailblazers in this field. Also, they don’t get as much publicity as their counterparts.
So, what do you think of this list of black-owned wineries? Can you believe this is just a partial list? There are other black winemakers out there but I thought this was a great start. Have you tried any of these black-owned wines or supported any of the black wine businesses or events listed? If you haven’t, what better time to show support than during Black History Month!
Before you leave, you can show me some support by purchasing my Ebooks! They are available on Amazon. There are destination guides to cities all over the world for food & wine lovers and a USA wine guide that describes the major wine regions in the USA. Stay tuned to the wine section of this blog for upcoming wine posts including a Beginner’s Guide to Bordeaux France.
