The Story of Cheramie Wine
Our love affair with wine began with an amazing road trip to Fredericksburg, Texas to explore the vineyards in the Texas Hill Country. We quickly realized that when people think Texas they don’t think wine...
It became our mission to put Texas on the map in the wine industry. What started as conversations with friends at our favorite wine bar, became a dream to bring Texas wine to as many people as possible! So we began selling Texas wine through our brand Salt and Pepper Wine.
I'm black, Todd's white, the name is a fun nod to us as a couple on this adventure to share Texas wine with the world. But even more than that, Salt and Pepper are different, but they go together. We believe in together.
Salt and Pepper Wine stands for inclusivity, where everyone–no matter their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, wine knowledge, economic status, cool crowd or not–are welcome and celebrated. We’ve saved a seat just for you at our Texas-Wine-Loving-Table.
So while we were busy falling in love with all the amazing wines Texas has to offer, we couldn’t quite shake the desire to make our own! And so, Cheramie Wine was born. Cheramie Wine is the culmination of years spent learning and loving the Texas Wine Industry, and knowing there is more in life. Knowing that we are destined for great things, despite every setback and obstacle, if we are willing to chase after them at full speed. We believe that you can be and do anything you want. We all have inside of us what we need to live as our highest selves. Cheramie Wine is living proof of that. All you need is grit, grace and a whole lot of guts.
