Blacc Wine Study Group and Master Class with Carmen Stevens

Blacc Study group  is an initiative I started before Covid 19. Members of Blacc who work in the wine industry and are interested in taking an advance wine exam join the study group simply to learn more about wine. After meeting for a few weeks we finished the entire WSET Level 2 study guide. I thought it would be a creative way to learn by talking to actual professionals in the wine and spirits business so I invited winemakers, sommeliers and vineyard managers to host Master Classes. We meet each week online Tuesday and Thursday for this master class.

Today we are welcoming to our Blacc Study Group and Master Class Black winemaker Carmen Stevens. Carmen is part of South African wine history. She was the very first person of color to graduate Elsenburg College with a winemaking degree. She is one of few people of color to have an International award wining wine brand as well as make wines for highly rated wine farms in SA Get your questions ready I am certain there are parts of “herstory” past and present you would like to learn about!
