About US

Wine’s always been drinkable—

we’re making it accessible

Hi, we’re Erica and Catherine, two best friends who are bringing diversity to bubbles and the boardroom.


As black women, we’d always been told to drink pink or order sweet. But having someone telling us what to think and drink just wasn’t our style.

We wanted to sip on champagne during girls nights without judgement.

We wanted to hit up tasting rooms without feeling like we needed a PhD in [insert fancy wine term] in order to fit in.

We started The Sip to open up sparkling wine to more people. To help bridge the racial disparity in the industry. To give back to our community. And honestly, just to have a damn good time!
