Black Wine Events are Essential

Black Wine Events are Essential

Let’s chat about why events like The Black Wine Experience and Roses & Rosé are important. Historically wine has been a Caucasian male dominated industry. More and more women and people of color are breaking in but with little recognition. For instance in South Africa who’s population is about 3/4 black only had its first black female winemaker in 2004. Aside from the financial portion (lack of financing and people willing to finance), a big portion of the problem is the underrepresentation and acknowledgment of these groups. The best thing we can do is support! It may take a little more effort to find brands that are female or black owned/lead (this includes importers and distributors) but it’s definitely worth it. Our #essencefestival events are about more than just drinking wine, we are supporting our own and their families. Hue Society will continue to do its part to push the culture forward and provide a platform where these wines can be can be seen and enjoyed. Will you join us? You can help by sharing this post, tagging people, inviting people. Even if you’re not going to Essence this year there are plenty ways to support 😊. Ticket link on events page😁
