A Wine and Spirits Festival Experience


A Wine and Spirits Festival Experience

CLINK FESTIVAL is an annual Chicago-based wine and spirits festival dedicated to highlighting Women, Black, Indigenous and People of Color in the industry.

Less than 1% of wine industry negociants are black women. Our goal is to educate, empower and encourage Minority women to follow their dreams and aspiration even if only 1% of Minority women currently occupy the space. CLINK FESTIVAL is a representation of women collaborating to create an experience that will shine the light on the success of women across the world.
