Diversity Statement

 

Shop Mr. Wonderful Diversity and Social Responsibility Statement

Like many in our industry, we have been reflecting on recent events in an already challenging year.

We want to be clear on where our wineries and our company stand on diversity. We are listening and we are learning.

Shop Mr. Wonderful believes in diversity.

We believe in justice. We believe in inclusion. We believe in liberty and freedom for all. We believe Black Lives Matter. We support BIPOC. We welcome all.

The wine industry has more work to do. VWE has more work to do. Action matters. Our leadership team has committed to the following:

  • Working with Black wine professionals to actively recruit for employment, provide leadership opportunities and support Black-owned businesses, suppliers and voices.
  • Creating a scholarship for Black wine professionals to use for education, professional development, and credentialing.
  • Sponsoring and participating in symposiums, conferences, and workshops for Black women and diverse communities in wine.
