Red, White, & Black highlights the lives of minority winemakers who have begun changing the face of Oregon’s winemaking culture. This documentary delves into the challenges and accomplishments of winemakers of color and the LGBTQ community who have traditionally been excluded from the predominantly white, high brow industry. This is a story about entrepreneurs of different backgrounds who have removed barriers in pursuit of their dreams thereby closing the narrow opportunity gap in Oregon. Despite the gravity of Red, White, and Black’s content, this documentary delivers with an upbeat tone, a cadence of storytelling and camera work that helps to uplift the consciousness of its viewers, its wine drinkers, and dreamers alike.
