A Black Winemaking Revolution in the Making

Jun 20, 2020

(Wine-Searcher) - As Black Lives Matter protests drive more business to black winemakers, some wonder if a change is going to come.

George Floyd’s death at the hands of police has set off a chain of reactions across the globe, even in the notoriously unwoke world of wine.

But as hundreds of thousands of protesters take to the streets calling for systemic change and racial equality, and debates swirl over police department funding, well-meaning but clueless white writers (including me), sommeliers, distributors, importers and restaurateurs post black boxes on social media with all of the wrong hashtags and flail about unsure of how to – but very much willing to – support black winemakers.
