Female-Founded BIPOC Wine Brand Debuts Third Varietal


Created by two BIPOC women, the new wine brand makes a splash by releasing Mom Juice Rosé

DENVER (September 2022) – KT Winery, a Black, and Asian women-owned wine brand, who already have Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio under their Mom Juice Wine brand collection, can now add Rosé to their product line.  

Founded by Kristin Taylor Hines and Macie Mincey, the two co-founders met three years ago at a conference and as business sparks flew, the pair kept in touch. While shopping for wines, Hines would peruse the aisles but never found anything that appealed to her playful nature. She saw the lack of appeal to the millennial market in the wine industry along with the gap of BIPOC female representation and sought to bring them together – the playfulness of a brand combined with good tasting wine at a reasonable price point. When she was ready to bring her idea to life, she called Macie on speed dial and together, they found their mission.

Since their launch in 2021, KT Winery quickly gained popularity from the release of their Signature Cabernet followed by Mom Juice and has become unique in their category to their followers. Mom Juice became their first brand within the KT collection because Kristin’s passion for wine came from her own mom collecting wines from traveling around the world while Macie can attribute her sense of purpose in the world from having a mom expose her to travel at an early age and cultivating a closer relationship with her grandmother. 

“I decided to launch KT Winery because I was ready to offer something new and unique to the marketplace. I didn’t want to just put a label on a bottle of wine; I wanted to partner with a family-run vineyard and seasoned winemaker such as, Brian Kosi. The tribute in my case is having a badass mom who set an example for me about what it means to challenge the norm, go after your dreams, and believe in yourself. My mother nurtured the idea that I could get along with anyone by finding common ground. This manifested in wine as my great equalizer that I used in social settings because wine and food are translatable no matter the language or the culture.” said Founder, Kristin Taylor Hines.

“I personally learned to love wine through my experience working in banking and being nervous at client dinners. Wine countries like Martha’s Vineyard and Napa bring about a full experience where you learn about the grape, define your palate, and the story behind each wine. We want to bring that same experience to our customers. Wine education and storytelling is our differentiator; our wine is good, low manipulation, and produced sustainably. We want our customers to enjoy the experience that comes along with our brand, while getting to pay homage to our moms at the same time.” said the Co-Founder, Macie Mincey.
