Empowering The Diner Through Wine: Why See The World When You’ve Got Wine
Empowering the Diner is a Black women-led food and beverage event centered on collaboration and inclusion in which they bring folx together to discuss, learn, and explore their palate and dining experiences. Empowering the Diner seeks to dismantle colonizer-led perspectives and gatekeeping practices by challenging the status quo through creative, multi-faceted, and BIPOC-led educational and hospitable experiences. The first educational experience will be: Empowering The Diner Through Wine. This will be offered on a virtual platform called Hopin. Empowering the Diner Through Wine will be a four-week experience. This offering will be conducted in four sessions. Each session will include one full bottle of wine, a pairing BIPOC chef's recipe, and feature educational dialogue with a BIPOC wine professional. In the third session, you will talk about why you buy and connect to wine beyond taste and agriculture (i.e. producer stories, exploration, pairing, etc.). You'll also address the difficulties BIPOC face when buying wine - accessibility. The focus will be to engage with you about what you are looking for in your wine buying experiences and how you can combat elitism in wine. With speaker Lindsey Williams and Chef Joseph Paire. $55 for this session only, or $110 for an all-access pass to all four sessions ($80 for BIPOC). Taught on Friday, June 4th, at 8:30 p.m. EST.
