Project Description

 

 

  • Sip & Share Wines is a boutique winery passionate about creating community with wine for wine lovers overlooked and underrepresented by the wine industry. Our diversity of artisanal vegan wines are approachable to all palates, fun to sip and share and available via our wine club or by-the-bottle at sipandsharewines.com.

 

  • The wine industry is a highly non-diverse and inclusive industry. There is a long-standing, systemic bias against Black and Brown consumers. Sip & Share Wines is shattering the stereotypes and changing the face of the wine world. We're creating space for and centering the new majority of wine enthusiasts to engage with and learn about wines in a fun, accessible, non-judgmental and culturally affirming space, while welcoming all.
     
  • What is the market size/opportunity? The total U.S. wine market came to 408 million cases (9 liter, 2.37 gallons equivalent) worth $70.5 billion in 2018. The total market has doubled in value since 2003. Of the 408 million total cases sold in 2018, a little more than 331 million were sold in the off-premise sector and 77 million were sold on-premise. By volume, imports accounted for 105 million cases (26%) and 33% of the market's total value.

 

  • Sip & Share Wines is seeking funding to increase our production capacity in preparation for the upcoming holiday season. We'll purchase grapes, bottles, labels and launch a marketing campaign.

  • THE TEAM
  • Nicole Kearney, Vintner/Founder has been in the wine world for over ten years initially, representing Black and women winemakers, while producing two Sangrias.

Her customer, community and culture centered philosophy guides Sip & Share Wines decisions.
