How Black Women In Wine—And Their Allies—Are Banding Together To Achieve Better Representation

The sisters, cofounders and winemakers of the California-based McBride Sisters Wine Collection, immediately point to a wine industry magazine cover that featured 50 industry leaders. Not a single one is a black woman.
“In one shot, it’s a very good representation of the lack of diversity in the industry,” says Andrea.
