Show Notes

Episode 15: Ah the world of wine is so vast! For many of us, when it comes to buying a bottle of wine, it's hit or miss and we might purchase based on the pretty label or a recommendation from someone else. MProper Mimi teamed up with Chef Keesha O'Galdez, founder and owner of The Gourmet Diva Inc. from our very first episode and Sommelier and wine educator Lea Faith Williams, founder of Let's Talk Wine to host a virtual wine tasting. Our ladies extraordinaire  walked us through the process of how to pair and taste wine and find what we like about the wine we are drinking!  We focused on women in wine, particularly Black women in the wine industry for our wine recommendations. What we found was that it was difficult for some people to find wine in their local stores from the following Black owned wineries and winemakers: Brown Estate, McBride Sisters, Theopolis Vineyards, Stuyvesant Champagne and Aslina Wines. Whether it's due to demographics or distribution, you can ask your local store to order these and other Black owned wines for your tasting pleasure or go right to the source and order direct! We invited Paula Harrell, from P. Harrell Wines to join us afterwards for an intimate conversation about Black Women in wine and what some of their experiences have been in the wine industry.  Mimi talked with Lea, Keesha and Paula about what first sparked their interest in wine, to various challenges and accomplishments they have achieved. We hope this episode helps to open the world of wine to women and empower them to identify what they like to drink and why. As always, we want to encourage supporting Black businesses and women in business as well. Listen and share MProper Mimi with other Black women and anyone who is passionate about conversations that empower women everywhere! Email Mimi with questions or comments!
