So many of us take for granted our everyday things that give us joy--even our wine. But when you take a moment to stop and look around or turn over a stone, you can find a surprisingly racist history. Lenya and Alexandra discuss the racism that’s ingrained all over the world in the wine industry, how Lenya has trained to be a WSET level 3 expert in wine, how athletes and celebrities should be using their platforms to be allies instead of just preformative, and more on this episode of Women Bridging The Gap.
