ELEVATE

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: 

 

Jerk Shack

The Jerk Shack pays tribute to classic Caribbean food thoughtfully cooked with care and modern technique. Go visit them and be transported to the Caribbean—taste the food, feel the music, enjoy the art, and experience the culture of the sun.

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."

Umami Kushi

After years of selling his okazu pan (Japanese-style fried buns stuffed with curry or creative liberties like salmon, lentils, or barbecue pork) via local coffee shops, Harold Fields now takes direct online orders from his kitchen in Rainier Beach.

Ba Bar

"I was born in Saigon; my family fled in 1978 when I was 13. We just got on a boat and left. I moved to Seattle in 1996 to start a restaurant, my parents were furious. "We didn't risk our lives to leave Vietnam so you could become a cook," they said."
