Ep 48: Strong Roots & New Friendships – The Roots Fund | JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery

April 14, 2022

Today we meet Ikimi Dubose with The Roots Fund. The Roots Fund was created to nourish and enrich the lives of communities of color in the wine industry. She led a team of scholarship benefactors, folks wanting to learn more about how they can grow in the wine industry by coming to Paso to get a hands-on approach. They not only lived it up, but went to work, we’re going to hear all about it, and how Paso grows by partnering with groups like The Roots Fund. For more info: TheRootsFund.org

Along with Ikimi, we meet Molly Scott. Not only does she handle Growing Relations for JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery, but she is also the Director of their Community Outreach, as well as President of the Board for the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance.

We also talk about Paso Wine Fest 2022. With all-new features, including a VIP pass, you don’t want to miss Wine Fest this year.
