Benita Johnson is an advocate for wine appreciation. She believes that for people to truly love and enjoy wine, they must find what they like. It doesn’t matter what she says or what the world’s best Master Sommeliers say…it is about the individual palate!
Through her unorthodox trainings as a black female small business owner and Sommelier, Benita encourages traveling and tasting.
She believes that the more one understands about the origin of the grapes, the geography, and the process, the easier the road to appreciation. “We appreciate what we understand,” she says. Benita’s hope for her clients is that that
appreciation feeds the need to want to learn more!
