By October 24, 2020Top News

Napa Valley Vintners announced its investment of more than $1 million in new scholarship and mentorship programs that are aimed at increasing diversity, inclusivity and opportunity throughout the wine industry. The five-year plan allocates $200,000 a year to the United Negro College Fund and began a fundraising effort with its members to build the fund beyond that initial investment. The nonprofit trade organization also announced it will invest more than $100,000 in two new mentorship programs being created by industry organizations Wine Unify and Bâtonnage. The mission of Wine Unify is to welcome, elevate and amplify the voices of underrepresented minorities. Bâtonnage fosters solutions for a more positive, inclusive course forward wherein women and ethnic and racial minorities achieve equal representation, equal opportunities and equal leadership positions within the wine industry.
