As we gear up for the DC Black Food and Wine Fest on Saturday, 25th, we wanted to put a spotlight on some fantastic Black-owned wine brands.
According to a 2020 wine industry study, “Black-owned wineries account for less than 1 percent of all U.S. wineries, while Black people typically make up more than 10 percent of American wine consumers.”
If you haven’t yet, it’s time to add some Black-owned wines to your collection.
