Truvée Wines Luncheon with the McBride Sisters

Last week, I had the pleasure of lunching with the McBride Sisters, the first African-American sisters to own a wine company – Truvée Wines. Fittingly derived from the French verb “to find,” each bottle of Truvée embodies the McBride Sisters’ wonderful story of growing up continents apart, completely unaware of each other’s existence before uniting over a mutual passion – their love for wine. With Truvée, they’ve crafted an affordable and contemporary wine sourcing grapes from multiple premiere vineyards throughout the Central Coast of California.

Sharing the same father, but raised by different mothers, the sisters both grew up in emerging wine regions—independently fostering appreciations for the craft of winemaking. Growing up continents apart in Monterey, California and Spring Creek, Marlborough, New Zealand, both were unaware of the others existence for nearly half of their lives. Their father’s final wish before he passed away of cancer was to connect his two daughters. The sisters were united for the first time in 1999. Their inspiring story honorably exemplifies  “to find what matters most.”
