Congrats to these ladies! The McBride sisters are making history with their winery. Get all the details via S2SMagazine.com below.
Move over Bethenny Frankel the McBride sisters are looking to break records in the wine industry. They already broke one record by being the first African-American sisters to own a wine company but they are not stopping there.
Andrea and Robin McBride started their wine company over 10 years ago and recently launched their second brand “Truvée,” which is derived from the French verb “to find.” The name we assume is from their unlikely meeting. They didn’t even know that the other existed until much later in life.
They both share a father but it wasn’t until Andrea was 16 and Robin was 25 that they met as a last wish of their dad. They lived on opposite ends of the planet, one in California and the other in New Zealand but they both grew up on vineyards and not only did they decide to meet, they decided to start a wine company together.
They launched the company in the Nation’s Capitol and are doing extremely well. They make Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Grenache / Syrah Red Blends. Their company was launched on a digital platform and within a year they gained national distribution. They currently distribute wine in Marlborough, New Zealand and Central Coast, California.
“It’s our vision to be the leading provider of premier sustainable wines that enrich celebration of life, beauty and optimism for the betterment of humankind.” – Robin and Andrea McBride.
The sisters recently made an appearance on “NewsOne Now” and this is what they had to say:
Andrea McBride told Martin, “It all started really from growing up in the wine industry as two little brown girls and incubating these ideas that maybe one day we wanted to make wine and in all honesty, we probably wouldn’t have done it by ourselves if we hadn’t met. We felt that we were kind of powerful — the world had brought us together in a very serendipitous moment and we wanted to take it on. We want to do it.”
