In a statement received by Blavity, the two said their brand’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Founders Blend, “reflect shared values of inclusivity, quality and innovation.” The brand, according to the press release, is dedicated to the “strong women who have shaped the Curry family’s heritage.”
The sisters-in-law found their inspiration for Domaine Curry in 2015 when they were toasting to the women in their family during a dinner with their loved ones. Proverbs 31 of the Bible has served as the sisters’ guiding principle since the product’s inception. According to the founders, the proverb is an ode to “sisterhood, empowerment, legacy and self-determination.”
“Throughout our lives, wine has always been a way to bring our friends and family together. We are fortunate to be surrounded by so many impressive women who inspire us each day, and we hope Domaine Curry will serve as homage to them while also empowering future generations,” Ayesha said in the statement.
Domaine Curry wines are crafted in partnership with The Prisoner Wine Company and produced with grapes sourced from grower partners in Napa Valley.
“Our partnership with The Prisoner Wine Company has allowed us to infuse our personal touches into the look and taste of these new wines, and we’re thrilled that more women will have the opportunity to enjoy them, just as our family does,” Sydel said in the same statement.
The 2021 Domaine Curry Cabernet Sauvignon is selling for $80 while the 2021 Domaine Curry Founders Blend is available for $65. Domaine Curry also plans to introduce its Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc next spring.
Domaine Curry wines are available for purchase online in select markets and at The Prisoner Wine Company Tasting Lounge in Napa Valley.
“The Prisoner Wine Company and Domaine Curry are driven by the shared values of inclusivity, authenticity, and innovation,” The Prisoner Wine Company’s general manager Bukky Ekundayo said. “We’re aiming to define and lead the wine category for Black and multicultural women, and we’re committed to combating barriers to make the space more approachable for women working in and enjoying fine wines.”
