By using our platform, E3 Wines is dedicated to representing the underrepresented. We strive to support and uplift those whose voices and struggles have been muted. “Elevate” is a word describing our mission to level the playing field for all regardless of race, gender, culture, religion, or sexual orientation. In practice, we have chosen to live an elevation ideology by making the commitment to showcase the work of a minority artist on every bottle we sell. Not only will we leverage our stage, but each artist will be granted partial equity of proceeds in return.
Below is a list of local (Seattle) minority owned businesses, you can also help elevate:
Poco Wine + Spirits
"One of the more empowering pieces of being a business owner is that I can select my vendors and make sure people that look like me are represented and that I can actually showcase them to the world. Particularly the ones that don’t have the exposure that other wines, whisky, and beers have."
