Local Classical Featured Playlist – 02/20/23 – 03/05/23
In this week’s playlist, we feature Nicole Kearney, Winemaker/Founder of Sip & Share Wines. Nicole was named one of 40 African American Tastemakers (Under/Over 40) by Sabrina Jackson. Sip & Share Wines is a boutique winery producing a diversity of handcrafted vegan wines. They’re passionate about creating community with wine, especially for wine lovers often overlooked and underrepresented by the wine industry. Their wines are approachable to all palates, fun and made to sip and share.
Nicole’s serious relationship with wine began in 2008, when she attended graduate school for her Master in Fine Arts (MFA) in Dramatic Writing at Spalding University, Low Residency MFA program, in Louisville, Kentucky. Surrounded by writers of all genres – playwrights, screenwriters, fiction, non-fiction, and poets they shared about their lives and craft while sipping wine. Over two years, they would continue to sip and share wines with each other. It was there her passion for wine knowledge and the spark for her future endeavor was ignited. The Indianapolis Recorder has followed their growth with two stories that show where they are now and where they began.
We’ll hear directly from Nicole throughout this playlist as she and host, Salvador, discuss the history of Sip & Share Wines, her background, upcoming events, music, and much more. Music in this playlist will be perfectly paired for the Sip & Share Wines experience. You’ll also hear some great stories of composers who loved wine.
