Black-Owned Wineries Headline Festival on Martha’s Vineyard

Nicole Rojas SAVE THIS


Heading towards its second year, Soul of Sonoma on the Vineyard (SoSMV) is hoping to introduce Black-owned wineries to Martha’s Vineyard. The gathering, which began as a one-time event to promote Soul of Sonoma’s California wine tours, will return to the East Coast in August.

This year the event’s theme is “La Vie en Rose” and will focus on rosé wine. Guests are asked to wear “hints of blush and pale rose” to mark the annual wine and epicurean festivities.

“Rosé is still on-trend, and even wine experts are digging a bit deeper in their reviews and acknowledging that rosé can exhibit some of the same taste complexities as well-made reds and whites,” Soul of Sonoma’s founder Patrice Davenport told “This is an exciting time for wine because the invigorated interest in rosé has given connoisseurs and the broader industry a new horizon to explore.”
