Good People, Good Wine, and Celebrating Life with the McBride Sisters
Robin and Andrea McBride are the sisters, owners, and winemakers behind McBride Sisters Wines. They make fun, playful, and approachable wines in New Zealand and California. In this episode we dig into a lot starting with their incredible story that only God or fate could have made happen to diversity in the wine industry and their experiences as African-American women in it.
They also tell the story of how Oprah, Gayle King, and Common started repping their wines. Robin and Andrea are a powerhouse that taught me a thing or two throughout our conversation.
