Black Vines - A Toast to Black Wineries and Diverse Art®


Founded in 2011 by Bay Area native and Silicon Valley technology professional Fern A. Stroud, Black Vines is California’s preeminent curator of Black wine experiences and special events. We host an annual winter celebration of culture, art, and wine education that brings together Black artists, Black musicians, and Black winemakers and vintners; a lighter fare outdoor summer soiree featuring sparkling, rosé, and sangria; and year-round custom events in partnership with key influencers and industry specialists. After nine years, thousands of guests served, and more than 130 varietals tasted, expertise, quality, and inclusivity remain at the forefront of the Black Vines vision.
