Yes, there is a Beyoncé of Wine!
Introducing, Julia Coney.
Julia Coney is a Washington, D.C. and Houston, Texas-based wine writer, wine educator, speaker, and consultant. Her wine writing includes stories on wine, winemakers, personal essays, and the intersection of race and wine. She holds a WSET Level Two Certification in Wine and Spirits and is currently pursuing her Master Level Champagne Certification with the Wine Scholar Guild. Her work has been featured in Wine Enthusiast, Vinepair, Food + Wine, The Tasting Panel, Plate Magazine, Forbes.com, WineEnthusiast.com, Glamour, Essence, The Washington Post, and numerous print and digital publications. She is a 2019 Fellow of the Professional Wine Writers Symposium at Meadowood Napa Valley.
Julia has spoken on writing, diversity, inclusion, intersectionality, and more at wine2wine in Verona, Italy, Assemblage Symposium, Women in Wine Leadership Symposium, and CIA Sommelier Summit and Beverage Professionals Conferences.
She is a lifelong Francophile and hopes all her assignments involve French wine. You can find her on all social media at @juliaconey, her website juliaconey.com, and contemplating a love-hate relationship with Whole 30.
Dr. Akilah Cadet and Julia discuss nuances of the wine world and how the intersection race and gender come into play - along with the must see Netflix special, Uncorked.
