Press Release

Wine Enthusiast Magazine

“I hope that Alumbra brings more Latinos into the wine community, and wine industry as well,” she says. “Wine is a story that begins from the workers out in the vineyard to the tasting room. When we share our wine, I share our story. And when we take the time to listen to a story, it brings families, friends, and communities together.”
