Full details

How it works

Choose from two flights of three wines (750ml bottles): Women in Wine, which features wine from women-owned and operated winery, or Producers of Color, which features wine from Black and POC wineries.

The Urban Grape will arrange for the delivery of wine packages to your participants. During your event, your UG sommelier, Alyssa Champagne, will lead you through the process of tasting progressively, while discussing the regions, production methods, and producers' stories. UG's approach to wine education is as inclusive as the wine on their shelves: there are no wrong answers, no dumb questions, and no wine snobs allowed. Ask your burning wine questions throughout, and get to know your own palate just a bit better!
