Surrounded by Warhols, my whole team ball"

"Fight for Street Art" I believe is the name of this mural located in Brooklyn, NY.
Since I've started Urban Wine Tribe TV, I feel like I've been "fighting" the misconceptions of the wine industry and those that continue to uphold it. .
I respect wine and the people that dedicate their lives towards making it. There's a beautiful science that takes place within this process that cannot be denied, and I'll forever be appreciative. .
But in order to truly grow this culture, these barriers must be removed! The pedestal that wine is put on must be brought down so others can reach for it. We have to make the climb less intimidating. .
Like street art, we have to bring wine to where common people can appreciate it. Art isn't meant to be just hung in swanky art galleries and museums, just like wine isn't only supposed to be enjoyed at swanky wine tastings and with fancy foods. .
Wine can be interpreted many different ways. It's parallels to the more common things we love are endless. The wine is simply the accompaniment, not necessarily the main attraction.
The true value of art is not simply the price one is willing to pay for it, but the people it brings together, the emotion it creates, and the love it inspires. Same can be said about wine .
