It’s not just about wine. It’s about community, culture, and sharing experiences.
In 2010 Fern A. Stroud, had the vision to conceive an event that could bridge the gap between Black wine connoisseurs and Black wine vintners in the Bay Area.
She aimed to bring the community together in a positive and uplifting setting, but after hosting a couple of events it was evident that Black Vines® was so much more than just an event, it immediately bloomed into a community of its own. With a curated network of Black-owned wineries and vintners at its core, Black Vines® curates spaces of Black love, Black joy, and Black excellence, spreading love, joy, and peace while acknowledging black history and focused on celebrating Black future.
