Black-Owned Wineries With Wine Clubs

Black people cheers with red wine glasses

As Black History Month comes to an end, I leave you with a valuable resource to help continue your journey to support Black-owned wineries. If you are new here, you may not know that my goal in the world of wine is to not only make wine fun and approachable, but to also highlight diverse (Black, BIPOC, LGBT, minority, and female) owned wineries.

Diversity and inclusion matter - not only in wine but in life. Diversity, representation, and inclusion are key tenets of humanity all necessary to ensure we, as people, have a place and a purpose in this world. There are many ways in which you can support diversity and inclusion. My favorite way is to find and support Black-owned wineries. And why not join a new wine club?

The Landscape of Black-Owned Wineries

With 11,000 wineries in the U.S., there aren’t too many diverse options to choose from. According to Wine & Spirits Magazine, less than 1% of wineries are Black-owned, which significantly limits representation and inclusion within the wine industry.

Black History Month is not just about highlighting Black-owned businesses in February, but also year-round. As any business owner knows, residual/repeat income is KING. Consider joining a black-owned wine club to give ongoing support to that business, not just in February. Or perhaps gift someone a wine club membership!

Sample Policy

As a wine writer, I frequently accept samples for review on my  website and on my social media channels. Please contact me at brianne@briannecohen.com to discuss sending samples for review. I promise to always be honorable with the samples. I will evaluate all wines in good tasting settings and with no distractions.

All reviews are my opinions, and mine only. Because of the volume of samples I receive, I cannot promise that all samples received will be reviewed, but I will do my best.
