Sister Act

It’s like something out of The Parent Trap: Two young ladies are introduced only to find that they aren’t merely compatible, they’re actually sisters who grew up on separate continents and never even knew the other existed. Time to celebrate! New Zealand winemaker Andrea McBride and corporate-minded Californian Robin McBride are the first African-American sisters to own a wine company. The two will share their inspiring story at a keynote address at 4 p.m. Aug. 14 during the 2012 Women’s Leadership Conference at MGM Grand (Women’s Leadership Conference). To get in the mood, you can find their delicious, affordable and ecologically responsible Eco.Love wines—sauvignon blanc, riesling and, soon, a pinot noir, all made in the world’s first CarbonZero-certified winery—at and at Cost Plus World Market locations.
