Event Description:
Join us to welcome Melanated Wine to Durham! Stop by at 12pm for a formal ribbon cutting, then stay for wine tasting, light refreshments and entertainment!

Melanated Wine was created to decomplicate wine and embody our motto, “uncork the culture.”

Founder Lashonda Fort-Modest believed that the minority community had been overlooked in the area of wine. “I often felt that when I went grocery shopping or occasionally visited a wine shop or explored a vineyard, there was nothing that spoke to people like me.” This oversight led Lashonda to ask, what was the wine industry missing regarding people of color? This question would propel her to learn about the industry; growers, grapes, tannins, and all things wine in hopes to decomplicate the complexities of the buying experience. “I believe wine can be fun, educational, delicious, and above everything uncomplicated.”

Melanated Wine believes wine can be vibrant, energetic, and fun. But, most importantly, an opportunity for everyone to enjoy delicious wine and gain an understanding of what they are experiencing.
