MEFeaters It’s our favorite holiday, #NationalWineDay! There is nothing like having a glass or two of wine after a long day or picking the perfect bottle to go with your meal. Over the past year, it has become more important than ever for us to support our own Black-owned businesses. Now that the weather is warming up and vaccines are rolling in, here are five Black-owned wineries that need to be on your radar this summer.
- Eco. Love Wines
Eco. Love Wines was founded by sister duo Robin and Andrea Mcbride with a passion for the environment and a love for great-tasting sustainable wine in mind. Growing up on opposite sides of the world, the McBride sisters came together to make their different ideas and passions into a reality. They are the first Black sisters to establish their own winery.
2. Aslina Wines
Aslina Wines is a company completely owned by Ntsiki Biyela. Established in 2016, Aslina is known for its range of premium wines. Ntsiki has become one of the most recognized names in the wine world as sh is also South Africa’s first Black female winemaker.
3. J. Moss Wines
James and Janet Moss opened the J. Moss Winery in 2010 in the Southernmost part of the wine crusher district in Napa. James and Janet had a dream to create high-quality, hand-crafted, small lots of cabernet sauvignon from top Napa Valley appellations. They defintely achieved their goal.
4. P. Harrell Wines
San Francisco native Paula Harrell founded P. Harell Wines through her deep love of wine. This led to her starting the private label in Nov 2015. The label is perfect for corporate events, weddings, and girl’s night out.
