The most popular black owned “champagne” are Jay-z’s Ace of Spades and Rick Ross’s Belaire. However most people do not know that Belaire is not technically champagne but actually sparkling wine. True champagne like Ace of Spades is made in the northeastern Champagne province of France and made out of seven distinct grapes. That being said . . .

Velvety creaminess, aromatic explosion, bubbly freshness. SUN GODDESS PROSECCO is the ultimate sparkling wine to celebrate everyday uniqueness.
Last but never least, the McBride Sisters. The McBride Sisters are the largest Black Owned wine company in the US. Of course their sparkling brut does not disappoint. I had the pleasure of meeting Robin McBride, who exemplifies elegance, regalness, and passion for the industry.
Say hello to our Black Girl Magic Wines Sparkling Brut, a blend of predominantly Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay.
