Some people daydream while others put in the necessary work to live those dreams daily. Ms. Washington is the latter of the two. With research, bravery, and perseverance, a Black owned wine was born.
Ms. Washington’s first wine tasting took place at a Black owned shop. It was there that her love for wine was born and her palette began to grow. That experience was a defining moment that opened up a new realm of possibilities. She began researching wine and found a community of Black owned wines and wineries. Why only read about this community when becoming a member of it was possible? Her dream was birthed into reality, solidifying her seat at the table in the Black owned wine community.
