Lydia Richards and Maria Calvert are the dynamic duo determined to lead companies and brands in the wine industry towards reaching and expressing true diversity in wine through their work as PR gurus for a renowned company in the East Coast, and their venture in cofounding Hispanics In Wine–a platform dedicated to showcasing Latin@s in the wine industry from all around the world! Although these two Chingonas originally started their careers in polar opposite industries (Maria started her career in finance and spent 8 years on Wall Street and Lydia started off in the fashion industry), their courage and passion to pivot and pursuit a career in wine is an inspirational journey that reminds us it’s never too late to start over. It’s never to late to follow your dreams. It’s never too late to do more of what fuels you. It’s never too late to do what you’ve always wanted to do. It’s never too late to learn something new. It’s never too late to take risks, shake up the industry, diversify and amplify, support and educate. More importantly, it’s never too late to hope. Sip from their cup to get a taste of the wine industry from their side of the field, and discover why you don’t always have to reinvent the wheel to do more of what you love.
