The Napa Valley Vintners is investing more than $1 million in new scholarship and mentorship programs to increase diversity, inclusivity and opportunity in the wine industry - partnering with the United Negro College Fund. NVV committed $200,000 to the fund each year for five years and will begin fundraising to build the fund beyond the initial investment. NVV is also investing more than $100,000 in two mentorship programs created by Wine Unify and B√Ętonnage. With the program live and accepting donations, NVV is looking for help augmenting the scholarship fund to build it beyond $1 million.
