The Carter Selection (Specialty Wines)
Our specialty wine club was inspired by international peace and women’s rights activist, political office seeker, and crime fighter, Eunice Roberta Hunton Carter one of New York's first African-American woman lawyers, and one of the first prosecutors of color in the United States. She was active in the Pan-African Congress and in United Nations committees to advance the status of women in the world. Eunice Carter graduated from law school in 1934 and became the first African American woman to pass the New York State Bar. As powerful as “Lucky” Luciano was, Eunice ultimately brought his reign over the New York City underworld to an end through her tireless investigation and pursuit of leads generated from her experience as an attorney. Like our featured sparkling, rosés, and fruit forward wines Eunice is in a class of her own.
