Ready for our Close Up!

Ready for our Close Up!

Good Morning!

Before we dive into our love letter to the wonderful folks at Urban Grape (pictured), we want to toot our own horns, just for a moment.

This weekend we will be featured on New England Living, a lifestyle show that highlights and elevates stories from our communities. It was so much fun to work with them alongside our friends at Clark Farm for this show.  Make sure to tune in this Sunday, May 30th at 11:30am EST on @wbztv Channel 4! Check out this sneak peak and try not to make fun of me for talking with my hands too much (like a large, clumsy bird trying to take flight). It will also stream at 12pm and 7pm on CBSN Boston.

If you can't wait until Sunday, we are ALSO going to be featured this morning at 11 am on NBC Boston's The Hub.  You can check out the full clip here

Thanks to both for the chance to share our story and the work of the amazing farms that we partner with. 

Happy viewing and have a great weekend!

URBAN GRAPE

 

This week we were lucky to partner with the folks at Urban Grape to be a part of their supper club.  We packed bags of fresh pasta, burrata, baguettes and more for them to pair with wine and send off to their customers at their beautiful wine store in downtown Boston. From their site: "Urban Grape is a Black-owned and woman-owned small business dedicated to building community through beverage."

In speaking with Hadley Douglas, pictured here with her husband and co-founder TJ Douglas, we were drawn in by the story and vision of the store and started to explore areas of collaboration. Hadley's background is in marketing, events, and philanthropic management and TJ is the wine buyer and lead sales person at the UG. Together they have built a fun, vibrant following of wine enthusiasts and a business that is actively engaged in helping their community. We are so excited to find ways to work together more! 

And while Family Dinner isn't able to deliver you their wines yet, Urban Grape does deliver and can bring you bright, fresh summery rose by the gallon anywhere in the 495 belt! (Ok, fine. Maybe not by the gallon but they certainly have a great selection.) Check out their collection of BIPOC producers, LGBTQ+ producers and Female producers, elevating the work of talented folks often marginalized in the industry.

We have long heard your cries for Family Dinner to deliver wine with your weekly goodies. We aren't there yet, but  we hope you will check out our friends in the meantime. Cheers!
