Robin & Andréa McBride | W atlanta - buckhead | What She Said

Robin & Andréa McBride

Though continents apart, Robin & Andréa were both raised around vineyards in newly developing wine regions (Monterey, California, and Marlborough, New Zealand) each independently fostering their own appreciation for the craft of winemaking and each unaware of the other for nearly half their lives. Despite the 7,000 miles that separated them, they would eventually find their way to each other in 1999. Wine & Spirits Education Trust Certified, the McBride Sisters have been importers, distributors and vintners of award winning wines for more than 11 years. They have produced multiple 90+ point wines and won countless medals at international tastings - the sisters are Masters of the Wine business! As Vintners the sisters have two wine brands under the McBride Sisters Wine Company: the first from New Zealand in 2011 (making them the first African American sisters to found and own a wine company) and the second from the Central Coast of California which they launched 2 years ago. The sisters make over 1 million bottles of wine per year.
