5 Black Owned Wines To Know And Sip On

In our ongoing efforts to spread light on black-owned wines, wineries, and wine bars. We have compiled a list of wine companies that are owned by African Americans.

Want to help support more black-owned wines do the following:

1. Buy their wine now and in the future. See if they ship to your home.

2. Join their wine clubs so you have new releases sent to you every few months.

3. Follow and engage with them on Instagram and Facebook. Likes and reposts can really help a small business.

4. Visit the winery if they have a tasting room

5. Share this list with your friends online
