Wine Enthusiast is committed to showcasing the incredible, diverse talents in our industry who are helping to positively evolve and broaden the wine, spirits and beer landscape for all of us. This growth and evolution of the space is part of what makes being a wine lover today so exciting. We’ll continue to highlight more personalities, stories and perspectives that point to that positive change and result in more great pours on your table.


The Black community is indispensable to America’s food and drinks culture. Unfortunately, systemic discrimination has added layers of hurdles to business ownership in hospitality and all fields. Support for those businesses is integral to any efforts for equity in our industry.

To help interested consumers channel their spending power to Black-owned businesses in the food and drinks space, we’ve aggregated a list of resources being compiled by individuals and communities across the country. While hardly exhaustive, we hope we can use our platform to help amplify the visibility of these businesses to Wine Enthusiast readers, as well as highlight the tireless work being done by others to compile these resources.

To share additional assets to include in this list, please email editor@wineenthusiast.net.
