2023 Unified Wine and Grape Symposium
The 2023 Unified Wine and Grape Symposium is fast approaching!
The 2023 Unified Program Development
Committe has been hard at work putting
together a timely and informative program.
There will be several different breakout sessions
to choose from within the grapegrowing,
winemaking, business/operations, marketing
and Spanish track. We are especially excited
for our Keynote Speaker Luncheon line-up.
The Keynote Speaker Luncheon will take place
on Tuesday, January 24 and will feature Robin
McBride, McBride Sisters Wine Company,
facilitated by Julia Coney, freelance writer.
Robin serves as the Board Chair and President
of McBride Sisters Wine Company, a multinational organization
headquartered in Oakland, California. It is in the top 1% of volume,
largest Black-owned wine company in the United States, as well as
one of the most inclusive, accessible, socially aware and sustainable.
Robin and her sister began importing wines from New Zealand
in 2005 and started making their own wine together in 2009. By
spring 2017, the pair were producing wine from their hometowns in
Monterey California and Aotearoa New Zealand under one label, McBride Sisters Collection.
In 2018, they launched Black Girl Magic Wines, a celebratory wine brand paying homage to women in their family
and community, and in 2019 the sisters debuted She Can Wines, a premium canned wine in 2019 on International
Women's Day.
Robin and Andréa were the first Black women winery owners on the cover of Wine Enthusiast magazine and were
nominated for the Wine Star Award for the US Winery of the Year in 2021. Robin resides in the San Francisco Bay Area
