HOUSTON – It’s Wine Club Wednesday! Today’s H-E-B wine feature has a fascinating story behind it.
Two sisters grew up across the world from each other and didn’t know the other existed. Andréa and Robin McBride were both born in Los Angeles, CA, however were raised separately in the wine regions of Monterey, California and Marlborough, New Zealand. The Sisters eventually found their way to each other in 1999 and by 2005 created McBride Sisters Collection after discovering their shared passion for wine.
Over time, McBride Sisters Collection has grown into what is not only the largest Black-owned wine company in the United States, but one of the most inclusive, accessible, socially aware and sustainable. Since 2005, The McBride Sisters’ mission has become clear—to transform the industry, lead by example, and cultivate community, one delicious glass of wine, at a time.
Their story is proof that a bond can form over a bottle of wine.
Robin McBride shared two of the McBride Sisters wines with Derrick and Courtney.
This sophisticated dry Rosé has aromas of raspberry and orange blossom with delightful acidity and a mouthwatering fresh stone fruit and citrus palate. The Black Girl Magic wine collection is Robin and Andréa’s personal ode to their culture and story, inspired by the magic and resilience of Black women, and meant to be enjoyed by all.
This New Zealand Sparkling Brut comes from Marlborough, New Zealand. With aromas of rose petals and strawberries on the nose, the wine continues to improve as toasty, peach and raspberry notes hit your palate.
