The Definitive List of Black-Owned Wineries Around the Globe

It has been amazing to watch the shift in wine news coverage in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the Black Lives Matter movement. Quite suddenly, there has been a marked increase in visibility for black-owned wineries and BIPOC wine professionals in the industry. Such coverage is overdue, and even with this increase in coverage, there’s a lot of work to be done to ensure balance and diversity in wine media representation.

I have found myself frequently frustrated, though, in looking at the coverage of black-owned wineries, because the articles that highlight them are all some variation of “Ten Black-Owned Wineries You Need to Know” or “8 Black-Owned Wines to Fall In Love With Right Now” when there are quite literally hundreds of them around the world.

Now I know we live in the era of sound-bite journalism, and no editor of Vogue is going to let one of their writers list 150 wineries in an article about black vintners, but it seems a shame that all most people can muster is a handful of names.

The membership rolls of the African American Vintners Society themselves fall short in cataloging the full extent of black-owned wineries in America. Gabrielle Nicole Pharms, writing for Oprah Online, made a valiant attempt to make an extensive list, as have others, but as far as I can tell, they are all missing a lot of wineries.

So, in conjunction with Black History Month, I’m setting out here to make the most definitive list of black-owned wineries on the Internet. I’m sure my list is incomplete as well, but with your help and suggestions, maybe I can get it closer. Please use the comments below or the contact form to let me know who I might be missing.

If that photo up top seems familiar, there’s a reason for it.
