Have You Heard About the #SipGlocal Movement?

Sailun Tires

During this time of social distancing, we all need to find new ways to forge connections, conversations and community. Welcome to a new movement called #SipGlocal, where you support both local and global wineries so we can all bond together to support each other during this time of coming together.聽

Founded by Washington State Wines on Instagram, this movement began by featuring wines from the region, also known as #WAwine, and has expanded during our current COVID climate to support the entire world of wine. This movement includes supporting restaurants, wineries, sommeliers and chefs all around the world! Below we鈥檝e also put together a list of wineries from across the globe (including one from Washington State) who are founded and run by black owners.聽

the #SipGlocal MovementFun threads that have spun out of this are a number of IGTV series like 鈥榃ine Zones鈥 hosted by UK Wine Journalist Jamie Goode, 鈥楽ommlight鈥 – which features sommeliers and the human side of hospitality and their personalities outside of the 鈥淭he Suit鈥 and the restaurant, and聽 鈥楳essages in a Bottle,鈥 where real humans write letters about how they are holding up, what鈥檚 inspiring them and what they鈥檙e grateful for, all while sipping a glass of wine. In an effort to keep us all feeling united in the name of wine, food and hospitality overall, the content is then being shared and showcased on the @SipGlocal IG channel.
