Since officially retiring from the NBA in 2019, D Wade has pursued several passions outside of his love for the game, including the launch of his wine company, Wade Cellars. The company offers a variety of iconic California wines inspired by Wade’s love of the great wines of Napa Valley.
The McBride sisters created the McBride Sisters Wine Collection, now the largest African-American-owned wine company in the United States, to unite their parallel lives and passions, offering a collection of wines that authentically reflect the sisters’ signature style, which blends old-world elegance with new-world finesse.
