Barefoot Wine & Bubbly

"Barefoot #OneStride" 
 
Barefoot’s Support of the LGBTQ Community.
 
At Barefoot Wine, we live by the footprint we leave behind - whether we tread lighter on the beach or walk beside our friends. We believe every footprint is the same, no matter who you are or whom you love. This year, as PRIDE continues around the country, we look back at the footprints we've made with the LGBTQ community with nothing but PRIDE.
 
At Barefoot Wines, we are proud of our history of support for the LGBTQ community. Here are just a few highlights of our commitment to the cause of LGBTQ equality.
