In this episode of The Big Food Question, we hear from Julia Coney, a wine writer, wine educator, speaker, consultant, and activist. She also recently founded Black Wine Professionals, a resource intended to lift up the multifaceted Black professionals in the world of wine. In an interview with HRN host of The Grape Nation, Sam Benrubi, they discuss what it will take for the wine industry to become more inclusive and what is a reasonable timeline to expect change. Plus, Julia shares the origin story and plan for the Black Wine Professionals platform and tells listeners how they can get involved.
