Episode 028: How The Long Lost McBride Sisters Launched Into The Wine Industry

In today’s episode, Robin McBride shares how she found her long lost sister and partnered with her to launch a wine company they’ve named McBride Sisters. Their brand has stepped in to fill a void traditional industry titans failed to meet for women and people of color. Although their arrival was met with skepticism, they have been able to partner with stores such as Safeway, Kroger, Target as well as stadiums and airlines.

The sisters recently launched a new fund, “The McBride Sisters SHE CAN Professional Development Fund”, to promote the professional advancement of women in the wine industry. They hope to move the needle on the percentage of women in their industry.
