I’m always looking to support small businesses I would love to introduce you to two wine brands founded by women and dedicated to supporting women.
Love Cork Screw has just launched “BE THE LIGHT” Sauv Blanc inspired by Amanda Gorman’s beautiful inauguration poem. Black Female Founder Chrishon Lampley is a négociant and wine enthusiast is doing good by leveraging her platform to mentor young women and budding entrepreneurs. She truly is an inspiration to all who know her. (Love Cork Screw is sold nationally at Walmart Stores and Total Wine & More—as well as many boutique stores and restaurants). This Sauvignon Blanc is smooth yet has complex aromas of pear and tropical fruit lends way to the palate coupled with Meyer lemon and grapefruit rind citrus notes. Enjoy this wine with lightly seared scallops, creamy pasta or Thai cuisine.
Teneral Cellars just launched the Healthy Women, Healthy World Collectionfeaturing a trio of wines that bring attention to reproductive, heart, and breast health issues that affect millions of women globally. With every three-pack sold, $10 will be donated to the Endometriosis Foundation of America. Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, diagnosed with endometriosis herself, and co-founder of the Endometriosis Foundation of America, has paired recipes with these wines! Master Sommelier Catherine Fallis is Teneral’s featured sommelier who will conduct virtual wine tastings, education, and conversations with other women in wine.
