    • The Urban Grape

      My Life, Through The Lens Of A Wine Glass

      Join The Urban Grape’s own TJ Douglas for this very special webinar in celebration of Black History Month, presented by First Republic Bank.

      For years, TJ pursued his insatiable passion for hospitality and wine, only to find that the traditional paths to learning about and working in wine were all but shut to him and the BIPOC men and women who looked like him.

      His story covers ...

      • his growth as an entrepreneur who developed his own groundbreaking system for thinking about and categorizing wine that has revolutionized wine retail,
      • how he broke all the wine establishment rules, and showed others that a successful career in wine does not depend on attaining a sommelier pin,
      • the ways in which he built a cutting-edge and thriving Black-owned business in an industry that historically only rewards traditional paths to success.

      Throughout TJ’s story, you’ll learn about — and taste — wine from producers like Robin and Andrea McBride, Theodora Lee, Tinashe Nyamudoka and Donae Burston, who are leading innovative Black-owned wine brands across four continents.
