About Our Guest:
My name is Alicia Maria the founder and CEO of The Wine Noire LLC. With 20 years of corporate experience in training and development in the Healthcare sector, I always had amazing hobbies outside of work. One of those hobbies was wine. As an avid lover of wine it from being a hobby, to a student, to working in the industry as Wine Sales Associate, and then graduated to owning a wine business. Throughout the different phases of my wine journey what I noticed is the lack of diversity and inclusion of people of color in the wine industry. Even though there are women and minority wine producers their representation is very small. Women and people of color have even smaller numbers that own and operate wine distribution importing, wholesale, and export businesses. I choose to own and operate a company that focused on the business side of the wine industry because there is grow opportunity to help women winemakers, people of color winemakers, and small producers get their wines directly to the consumer and business clients. My company tag line is “ we provide business solutions that allow women and people of color winemakers to get from bottle to the local and global marketplace”.
