>> so it's an interesting event because people are saying, okay, so why do i -- why do i care about diversity in wine makers. it's a nice thing but how does it change the experience of drinking wine when you bring in, you know, different faces, different backgrounds, different ethnicities into wine making itself? >> i think there's a two prong kind of win-win for everyone. one, you have the ability for people to see people that look like them doing wine, which isn't always something that you see all the time. so seeing faces that represent your demographic really help like boost more wine by different people. and in that the variety of wine because just like artists, each artist has their own take on how they do things. with wine, it's an art. so each wine maker puts their own touch, very unique touch so it's an art. and when you have diversity in art and wine, it's a beautiful thing. >> i think that's amazing.
i wonder if we have video of co, who is from deoplis vineyard. we talked to her about her wine making. there she is right there. there you are. this is a custom crush facility in san francisco. she is a lawyer by tradename name. >> oh, yeah. >> but she grew up on a farm outside of dallas and hearing her story she says too, hey, when i don't tell my story, people like the wine. when i tell my story, they just buy it by the cases because it matters to people, i think, the story. >> yes, indeed. the story of the wine maker, any wine maker, is very unique to that person. and their personality is put into each bottle. and having the ability to connect with a wine maker, how often are you able to actually open a bottle and say, i have shook hands with this person, i have heard their story, i understand what was put into
this grape. you know, the process and the other part of the black vines which is also the education piece. actually being able to speak with multiple vintners, we will have 12 wine makers on site. >> you led me into how often do you get to open a bottle of wine? let's open a bottle of wine. tell me about the bottles of wine you brought. this is theo, which is theo pat tra lee, the queen of the vineyards. tell me who else. >> the mcbride sisters brut rosi. we have p her rareo, which is a san francisco and realtor and wonderful woman. we have two of her varietals and then e nut honey wine which is a local wine based out of east oakland and they are -- they have two varietyals as
well and they are all over. that's a nice pour. >> i'm giving you a nice pour. this is why i can't go to the event because i'll be done with the wine in a minute. tell me, in terms of drinking wine, the other thing you said to me was so interesting is that a lot of people come to this event and they are not wine drinkers. they are one of those people like, what am i smelling, what am i tasting? i don't like wine. i'm not a wine drinker. a lot of those folks who started with you in this event way back now are part of wine clubs. what do you think brought them in? >> the about it is again having that personal story of the wine maker and being in a space where it's not intimidating. what black wines is all about is making a wine experience enjoyable, taking all of the extra smell, taste, this, that, out of it. we just make it simple. either you like the wine or you don't. but then as you become more and more refined -- >> you know what you like.
>> exactly. you will know what you smell, you know what you taste and it's with time, like anything else. >> i love it. i feel a little guilty because the event is called black vines, a toast of black wineries and diverse artists at de femmery park at 1:00. >> come to black joy parade tomorrow. we will have the black vines experience there from 12:30 until the close of that event as well. we will have six wine makers that you will be able to taste. actually maybe even seven wine makers. >> and start planning for next year's event. >> yes. >> as we like to say every time we do a wine segment, cheers to that. >> cheers. we will be right back.
