Black History Month Feature: KT Winery

In honor of Black History Month, the Colorado Chamber is recognizing Black business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, and job creators who have grown their businesses from the ground up and are core to our local Colorado communities.

Today’s feature is Kristin Taylor with KT Winery

In an industry where less than 1% of U.S. winemakers are Black-owned and even fewer are women, Kristin Taylor is at the forefront of transforming the wine landscape. As the founder and CEO of KT Winery, Taylor is working to reshape both wine culture and community through her winery and its flagship brand, Mom Juice Wine.

Established in 2020, KT Winery is the collaborative effort of Kristin Taylor and Macie Mincey, co-creators of the revolutionary Mom Juice. Taylor’s extensive background in marketing and branding, acquired during her tenure at DISH Network, SLINGTV and renowned brands like eBay, has played a pivotal role in the winery’s remarkable success.

Taylor’s passion for wine and belief in its power as a great equalizer in life and culture is at the heart of Mom Juice’s mission. She emphasizes the ability of storytelling, wine and laughter to create meaningful connections, a philosophy that has garnered her notable features in Forbes, TODAY, WWD, PureWow and even Bravo’s Real Housewives of Potomac.

Mom Juice is revolutionizing the wine industry through innovative packaging and messaging that addresses ingredient transparency, diversity and caters to health-conscious consumers, especially moms. The brand offers a range of gluten-free, low-sugar and vegetarian wines, available both in retail stores and on their website.

As the founder and CEO of KT Winery, Taylor oversees all aspects of operations, regional sales, marketing, tastings and the approval of new wine varietals. She is dedicated to ensuring the presence of Mom Juice on shelves across the country.

Currently in the process of raising a $2 million seed round, KT Winery anticipates accelerated growth as a startup. Taylor is optimistic about potential partnerships with Colorado-based investment funds and retailers, promising exciting announcements in the near future.

Additionally, KT Winery has announced a partnership with Target, expanding Mom Juice’s availability in Colorado and North Carolina. The choice to partner with Target allows KT Winery to capture their target audience while also providing extensive marketing and awareness. The goal is to witness increased sales throughout Colorado, both in regional retailers and Target stores.
