Cheers! McBride Sisters Release Luxury Red Wines In New Collection Legacy Portfolio

The McBride Sisters Collection Legacy portfolio includes a 2019 Syrah, 2019 GSM, 2020 Grenache, and a Collection Legacy Gift Set.

The McBride Sisters Wine Company, founded by Robin McBride and Andréa McBride John, has unveiled a new luxury wine collection called the McBride Sisters Collection Legacy portfolio.

This lineup of distinct red wines from California pays homage to Mother Nature’s bountiful grapes and terrain, as well as the essence of the sisters’ journey in the wine industry. “The wines represent the elements that make my sister and I truly unique from each other, but also embodies what we have accomplished over the last two decades together,” Robin said, according to the Wine Industry Advisor.

The collection’s elegant packaging and character are inspired by the sisters’ story of growing up on opposite sides of the world, only to reunite and discover their shared passion for wine. “Each symbol has been carefully chosen to tell the story of what we feel represents us now and the legacy that we strive to leave behind for generations of groundbreaking winemakers and ambitious women,” Robin added.

Inaugural bottles in the Legacy portfolio showcase Rhone grape varieties grown in Edna Valley, San Luis Obispo, near the Pacific coast – a region with deep personal significance for the sisters. Andréa shared that the Pacific Ocean links the sisters, spanning from the New Zealand shores where she grew up to the California coast where Robin was raised. “Beyond holding a personal place in our hearts, it also impacts the selection of our growing environments that make our wines distinctive, memorable, and delicious,” Andréa says.

McBride Sisters Collection Legacy portfolio includes a 2019 Syrah ($90), a 2019 GSM ($80), a 2020 Grenache ($80), and a McBride Sisters Collection Legacy Gift Set ($250), containing one bottle of each wine.

The Syrah is described as having “a deep purple-red in color with a velvety pour… hints of bacon fat…Firm and gripping on the palate with dense fruit flavors and lively acidity.” The GSM blend is structured with a “striking deep ruby color and…brings a white pepper spice,” while the Grenache is a “concentrated red cherry graced with notes of rose petals, sweet sage, and pepper.”

The McBride Sisters continue their legacy as trailblazers in the industry and “the most successful” Black-owned and women-founded wine company in America. As previously noted by BLACK ENTERPRISE, the sisters have awarded over 30 wine education scholarships through their SHE CAN Fund and established a national membership database of over 6,000 women.
