LA: The Black Wine Family


Join us Thursday, February 11th at 6pm PT on Zoom for an evening to honor Black History Month and the impact of BIPOC winemakers and entrepreneurs in the wine industry. We’re excited to have not one, but FOUR guest speakers with us for the evening: André Hueston Mack, founder and winemaker of Maison Noir wines, Malek Amrani, owner & winemaker at Vice Wines, Louis Garcia, board member from the Association of African American Vintners, as well as Dr. Natalie Sanders, MD and Brand Ambassador for The Boisset Collection. 

Wines for the evening’s tasting are included with registration, and will be delivered locally the days before or day of the event. Paired with an intimate discussion with our guest speakers, we’ll be tasting Maison Noir’s Horseshoes & Handgrenades, a fruit-driven, full-bodied complex red blend sourced from Southern Oregon and Red Mountain Washington, along with Vice Wine’s The House Sauvignon Blanc, a wine with undeniable new world notes, but old world complexity and winemaking style. 

Tickets are $40 for members and $45 for non members. Zoom link, two bottles of wine and complimentary delivery in LA county included. Sign up by Tuesday, 2/9 to receive your wines in time for the event.

If you'd like to tune in from anywhere, you can purchase a ticket for the zoom link only (no tasting kit) for just $5. All are welcome!

About the Wines

Horseshoes & Handgrenades
Red Blend

 This wine is fruit-driven, full-bodied complex red blend sourced from Southern Oregon and Red Mountain Washington.  The rich, ripe, voluptuous fruit comes from Oregon Syrah with just enough Washington Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to give it complexity and structure.

Think cherry pits and leather whips!
The House
Sauvignon Blanc

This wine has a wide spectrum of aromas and flavors. We smell and taste something interesting every time we pop a bottle, especially in different temperatures. “The House” Sauvignon Blanc combines the best of both worlds.

The new world fruit notes and tropical character can’t be denied but the old-world winemaking gave this wine complexity and style. 
Meticulously crafted to be enjoyed for all occasions.
