The McBride Sisters Wine Collection is a story of two sisters and our passion for wine. Though continents apart, we were raised in the wine regions of Monterey, California and Marlborough, New Zealand; independently growing up in and around vineyards and developing an appreciation for the craft of fine winemaking. Living across the world from one another, we had no idea the other existed for nearly half our lives. Despite the 7,000 miles that separated us, we eventually found our way to each other in 1999.
After their father passed away in 1999, an aunt helped unite half-sisters Robin and Andréa McBride, who had grown up 7,000 miles apart. The pair quickly bonded over their similarities, including a passion for wine. In 2010, they started the McBride Sisters Wine Collection, which is now the the largest African-American-owned wine company in the United States
Upon meeting, we quickly discovered we shared the same passion for wine and had remarkably similar upbringings. After spending time traveling to wine regions around the world to fine-tune our craft, we created the McBride Sisters Wine Collection, uniting our parallel lives and passions. Now the largest African-American-owned wine company in the United States, our collection of wines represents a genuine sense of place. Both the New Zealand and Central Coast of California wines are true expressions of each region’s terroir and our signature style; a blend of old-world elegance and new-world finesse.
