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\u2019ll continue to highlight more personalities, stories and perspectives that point to that positive change and result in more great pours on your table.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Black community is indispensable to America\u2019s 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.\r\n\r\nTo help interested consumers channel their spending power to Black-owned businesses in the food and drinks space, we\u2019ve 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.\r\n\r\nTo share additional assets to include in this list, please email email@example.com.\r\nBlack-owned wine, spirits and beer\r\n\r\n \t67 Black Owned Wineries - Robin and Andre\u0301a McBride (@mcbridesisters)\r\n \t10 Black-Owned Distilleries Making Some of America\u2019s Finest Bottles - Kara Newman for Wine Enthusiast\r\n \tThe Best Black-Owned Breweries In The U.S. - DeAnna Taylor for Travel Noire\r\n \tThese Black-Owned Breweries Give Us Hope for the Future - Ale Sharpton for Thrillist\r\n \tDiversity Your Palate with Travels of a #BlackBeerTraveler - Brandon Montgomery of @BlackBeerTravelers via Google Maps\r\n \tA Global Guide to Black-Owned Wine Labels -\u00a0Wine Enthusiast\r\n \t13 Black-Owned Drinks Businesses to Check Out - Mark Stock for The Manual\r\n \tWhere are all the Black-owned wineries in the Pacific Northwest? - Adria Saracino for The Emerald Palate\r\n\r\nNonprofits providing resources to Black hospitality workers and entrepreneurs\r\n\r\n \tFood Education Fund: A New York City-based nonprofit that offers job training and a paid internship program to culinary public high school students.\r\n \tThe Okra Project: \u201cThe Okra Project is a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People wherever we can reach them.\u201d\r\n \t11 Charities And Organizations That Support Black Lives Matter And Diversity In The Food Industry - Kristin Salaky for Delish\r\n\r\nBlack-owned restaurant lists organized by region, state and city\r\n\r\n \tEatOkra App: A mobile guide to Black-owned restaurants across the U.S.\r\n \t101 Black Owned Restaurants You Need To Try In All 50 States! - Jarett for Black Excellence\r\n \tLists of black-owned food businesses - source unknown\r\n \tBlack-Owned Businesses to Support\u2014Now & Always - Food52\r\n \tSupport Black Businesses - Cherry Bombe\r\n \tBlack-Owned Restaurant Lists Circulating the Internet, Organized by City - Bon App\u00e9tit\r\n \tHow to Support Black-Owned Restaurants Right Now - Vice Munchies\r\n \tHow to Support Black-Owned Restaurants in Your Community - Food & Wine\r\n\r\nBelow are lists and spreadsheets of Black-owned restaurants and bars specific to U.S. cities and organized by the following regions: Northeast, South/Southeast, Midwest, Northwest, West/Southwest (If you don\u2019t see your city here, check one of the above lists or search #blackownedrestaurants on Instagram).\r\nNortheast\r\n\r\n \tBrooklyn, NY: Black-Owned Brooklyn: \u201cA curated guide to black brooklyn\u2019s people, places and products.\u201d - Tayo Giwa and Cynthia Gordy Giwa\r\n \tNew York, NY: Black-Owned Restaurants in New York City by Hannah Goldfield of The New Yorker and Rachel Karten and Joseph Hernandez of Bon App\u00e9tit\r\n \tBoston, MA: Here are 60+ Black-owned restaurants to support in the Greater Boston area - Erin Kuschner for Boston.com\r\n \tPhiladelphia, PA: 28 Black-Owned Restaurants to Support in Philadelphia - Visit Philadelphia\r\n \tPhiladelphia, PA: Philadelphia Black-Owned Restaurants You Can Order From Right Now - Alex Tewfik for Philadelphia Magazine\r\n \tPittsburgh, PA: List of Black owned and operated restaurants - The Vandal (@thevandalpgh)\r\n \tProvidence, RI: Top Black-Owned Restaurants In Providence, Rhode Island - Leah Freeman-Haskin for Travel Noire\r\n \tMaine: Black-Owned Maine - @roseofbom and @realgeniusblack\r\n\r\nSouth/Southeast\r\n\r\n \tBaltimore, MD: Black-Owned Food Businesses to Support in the Baltimore Area - Lauren Cohen for Baltimore magazine\r\n \tWashington, D.C.: DC's Black-Owned Restaurants Open During COVID-19 - Anela Malik for feedthemalik.com\r\n \tNashville, TN: Nashville Black Small Businesses to Support\r\n \tCharleston, SC: Black Owned restaurants Google Map in Charleston, SC - KJ Kearney\r\n \tCharlotte, NC: 50 black-owned shops, restaurants and studios in Charlotte - Deanna Taylor for CharlotteFive\r\n \tMemphis, TN: Memphis Black-Owned Restaurants Guide - Edible Memphis\r\n \tLouisville, KY: Black-Owned Restaurants You Need to Try - Louisville Scoop\r\n \tAtlanta, GA: 50 Outstanding Black-Owned Restaurants in Atlanta - Trisha Pintavorn for Atlanta Eats\r\n \tNew Orleans, LA: Five Multigenerational Black Owned Businesses to Visit in New Orleans - Summer Suleiman for Go NOLA\r\n \tLittle Rock, AR: 150+ Black-Owned Businesses to Support in Little Rock - Jess Ardrey for Little Rock Soir\u00e9e\r\n \tCentral Arkansas: 100 Black-Owned Eateries in Central Arkansas - The Mighty Rib (@themightyrib)\r\n \tMiami, FL: Eat like a local at Miami-Dade\u2019s black-owned restaurants.
