Cheers to the weekend or any other festive and celebratory moments you may encounter in life. Celebrate those moments with these Black-owned wine and champagne brands. There are a lot of wines and champagnes created by Black icons making waves in the drink industry.
Celebrity drinks tend to rely on the celebrity’s name and online presence to push a product. However, Black winemakers tend to have to hustle from scratch to develop their brand with little brand recognition. Although both roads are vastly different, the hustle and sometimes the taste is just as sweet.

Whether you prefer a bold red wine, a subtle white wine, or a bubbly champagne, there is a good chance that a Black-owned company has the option available for you.
It might be a little bit of a hassle to find Black-owned spirits locally, but there are a few sites you can order from to get them. Sites, such as Total Wine and Drizly, have a wide range of wines and champagnes that you can select from.
It’s encouraging to see Black winemakers and celebrities break into an industry that doesn’t have a lot of Black representation. With popular online communities, such as Black Girls Wine and Black Girls Who Love Wine, it’s much easier to follow what’s new in the wine industry. Foodies and Black oenophiles everywhere can find like-minded people who share their curiosity and love for delicious wine and spirits.
Enjoy your next celebration with these Black-owned wine and champagne brands made with your culture in mind.Jump to Products

Brown Estate was started in 1995 by three siblings whose parents purchased an abandoned Napa Valley ranch in 1980. Since its inception, the company has seen many milestones, including a partnership with Delta Air Lines in 2019. The partnership featured the wines on the airline’s menus.
