Founded in 2010 by TJ and Hadley Douglas, The Urban Grape is a socially-responsible, Black-owned and woman-owned wine store dedicated to building community through beverages with a focus on underrepresented producers, regions, and varietals. The store’s concept is simple: “Drink Progressively.” The company also has a strong e-commerce platform that serves both personal and corporate customers across the country. The Urban Grape has always been committed to giving back to its community. In 2020, TJ and Hadley fulfilled a long-term philanthropic vision to increase diversity in the wine industry by founding and endowing The Urban Grape Wine Studies Award for Students of Color at Boston University. The program provides BIPOC students with paid internships in the wine industry and creates pipelines for sustainable wine careers.
