Being Black and Female in Booze Industry

Being Black and Female in Booze Industry

This month we invite wine educator Tanisha Townsend of Girls Meets Glass into the studio to hear about what it’s like to be black, female and American in the booze industry here in France.

“Tanisha’s zeal for education is evident in her professional, enthusiastic teaching style that ensures each student leaves her class with valuable information and fond memories of the experience. Tanisha not only educates novices to the wine & spirits world, but has developed and delivered training programs for retailers, restaurant wait-staff, and bartenders. Her multi-sensory presentations are featured at expos, seminars, and tastings.

The Girl Meets Glass website sums up Tanisha’s experience, credentials and offerings nicely:

Tanisha has a number of wine education credentials which include: Certified Specialist of Spirits (CSS), Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW), Certified Spanish Wine Educator, certified by the Bureau Interprofessional du Vin de Bourgogne as a Burgundy Wine Educator, French Wine Scholar (FWS) and Advanced Certified with the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET).

Tanisha currently lives in Paris, France where she is a Wine Concierge and Product Influencer. She creates wine and cocktail experiences throughout Paris providing expert advice on what to drink at some of the best places in town.”

Also, Tanisha just started her own podcast all about wine….coming soon!

And finally, while we enjoy doing the podcast and bringing you what we hope is interesting news, getting reviews not only helps other people discover us, but makes me realize i’m not just shouting into a void and that someone is actually listening.
