The Melo Wine Series: What’s in Your Glass?

Wine brings together celebrity guests and becomes an opening for tougher conversations

The Melo Wine Series: What’s in Your Glass?
Following the death of George Floyd, What’s in Your Glass? became a platform for guests such as Patti Labelle to discuss how to encourage younger Americans to become a voice for change.
From the May 31, 2021, issue

Carmelo Anthony loved discussing wine with his fellow basketball players. But when social distancing restrictions made tasting together impossible, he moved to the web with his What’s in Your Glass? YouTube series, which quickly became a way to discuss both wine and broader social issues with celebrity guests. Find out what was in the glasses of Patti Labelle, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J and Venus Williams—and what's next for the podcast.
