I am the founder and wine producer of 1 of only 2 Haitian wine companies in the United States. Montfleur Duvin became a love letter from myself to the host of Haitian women who helped raised me into the man I am today. I released my inaugural wine, a semi-sweet Gewürztraminer & peaches named after my late grandmother, ‘Yvonne’ & my newly released red wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon/ Shiraz blend named after my mother ‘Carline’.

Abner Montfleury, a first generation Haitian-American, sought to diversify the space.

What began as attending wine festivals in search of black-owned brands, led to years of diligent work and planning. A vision was put forth.

He is committed to making fine wines, evocative and meaningful to the soul, with every high-quality and well-balanced bottle shared.

We launched in August 2020 at the height of the COVID19 pandemic and despite not attending any wine festivals and not being able to interact with such people, we’ve expanded to 35+ locations ranging from local family-owned shops & partnering up with the Hyatt and Marriot hotels in Downtown Baltimore who are willing to showcase and support small-minority wine companies. I’ve partnered with many DMV local businesses from plant shops, turning our wine into ice cream, partnering up with Paint and Sip companies. I also started an entrepreneurial and financial literacy scholarship for my alma mater in Boston MA, Academy of the Pacific Rim Charter High School. Our current facility where we produce, bottle & label, package, and ship our wine is in Easton, Maryland. We offer our products online to 40+ states and we are currently sold at retailers in Maryland, Massachusetts, and plan to expand to NY, D.C., CA, FL shortly. We are in the works of launching our same-day delivery service in the state of Maryland by the end of 2021. I started this business because I want to help other people who are interested in entering the wine industry. To me, it’s all about trying to inspire those, who, may not be able to see themselves until they see someone like me in that space.

Abner’s story
Where are the black winemakers?

I am a first-generation Haitian-American wine producer, that sought to diversify the space.

What began as attending wine festivals in search of black-owned brands, led to years of diligent work and planning. A vision was put forth.

I am committed to making fine wines, evocative and meaningful to the soul, with every high-quality and well-balanced bottle shared while taking on the challenge of increasing Black representation in the wine industry. Black professionals make up just 2% of the drinks industry despite actually accounting for more than 13% of the U.S. population and I am actively being the change I am looking for.
