Fayetteville, GA, March 21, 2024 –(PR.com)– Raise a glass to history in the making at the Brunch Babes wine tasting event, celebrating Maryland Wine Month and Women’s History Month on March 24, 2023, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at 2220 Boston Street in Baltimore, MD.

This event is not your average wine tasting and brunch – it’s a celebration of Maryland’s explosive growth in the wine industry, with over 100 wineries and vineyards making their mark in the past decade. But what truly sets this event apart is the spotlight on Black wine producers, who have historically been underrepresented in the industry.

In 2020, there were only a handful of Black wine producers in Maryland, but fast forward to 2024 and that number has grown to over six. Five of these trailblazing producers will take the stage as guest panelists at the Brunch Babes event, sharing their unique perspectives and experiences in the industry.

Guest Panelists
Kimberly T Johnson, Philosophy Winery & Vineyard
Dennis Matthews, Philosophy Winery & Vineyard
Cyndi Campbell, Narcisso Wine Cellar
Jon’ll Boyd, Boyd Cru Wines
Sharmaine Taylor, Noir Sunshine Winery
Maiyesha McFadden, FLYgirl Winery

Hosted by the dynamic duo “Brunch Babes” of Vonnya Pettigrew from Root Branch Media Group and Leslie Frelow from The Wine Concierge. It is a historic gathering of Black wine producers coming together to share their stories and celebrate their successes. Guests will enjoy wine tasting, brunch, panel discussion and shopping. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of history in the making.
