In the wineworld, the term ‘black grapes’ describes the grapes that go into making red wine. On February 21st, however, we’re using the phrase to celebrate wines with contributions made by the black community to celebrate Black History Month. Tickets can be purchased here.
With its ability to transcend cultural boundaries, wine provides the perfect canvas for expression. On February 21, 2024, we're spotlighting the talents and contributions of black individuals who have left an indelible mark on the world of wine. From winemakers and sommeliers to vineyard owners and industry leaders, their voices echo through the clinking of glasses and the pouring of fine wines.
Black Grapes is an engaging walk-around tasting. Take the time to delve deep into different wine styles and expressions of grapes with a hand from the black community. Enjoy Caribbean bites from Flavours of Guyana and more. While at Black Grapes, take the time to visit our artist gallery rooms to support young black artists from the community.
So, join us for an event that honours the past, celebrates the present, and toasts a future where every palate is represented , and every story is heard. Cheers to diversity, innovation, and the shared joy that comes from savouring the excellence of black voices in wine.
