Community Highlights: Meet 3 Ladies on a Vine

Today we’d like to introduce you to 3 Ladies on a Vine.

Hello 3 Ladies on a Vine, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
3 Ladies on a Vine are 2 sisters blogging about wine one sip at a time! Ayanna and Niambi have always been close growing up together in a house full of sisters in Springfield, IL.

As sisters, we have always been close and searched for unique places, locations, and restaurants. Our bond grew as we began to travel to wineries and wine tastings together and discovered there is more to wine than just drinking.

It soon became a passion and we decided to start a wine blog. We crafted the blog to fit our creative and high-energy personalities, as well as combine our love for food and events. Our mission is to show all levels of wine drinkers how to creatively use wine in simple recipes and party ideas.

Consistency and putting ourselves out there have gotten us to where we are today. It’s a process of seeing what works and what doesn’t.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
When the business formed, all three members lived in St. Louis, MO, but then one of the members moved to California. We had to creatively make it work in two different states. Next, one of our members resigned in 2020.

We had to reorganize. We contemplated changing our brand name because we did not know if it made sense to keep our name with only two members. We decided to keep the name because we had already put so much hard work and dedication into the brand.

Finally, our Instagram page was hacked and we lost access to our page for 6 months. We were finally starting to get a consistent flow and following and then that happened. Honestly, we became unmotivated for a while because Instagram was our highest engagement social media platform.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about 3 Ladies on a Vine?
3 Ladies on a Vine is a blog specializing in creating cocktails, food pairings, recipes, and party & event ideas all using wine. We are known for showing our viewers and readers that you do not have to be an expert to enjoy wine. Our goal is to take the intimidation and pretentiousness out of drinking wine.

We want to get our readers out of their comfort zone as well. If they are sweet wine drinkers, buy a drier wine; and if you don’t like it, use it for a Sangria or make a wine barbecue sauce from that same bottle. What sets us apart from other lifestyle brands is that everything we create or discuss is wine-related.

We are proud of all ideas we have brought to life and how polished it looks. In the beginning, people thought we were using stock images. We were like no, “this is all us.” You can also hire us for wine tastings in St. Louis, MO, and Orange County, CA area.

We have led many wine tastings for corporate, bridal showers, girls’ night outs, family reunions, and birthdays. We also enjoy partnering with other brands and wine influencers. You can also purchase hand-crafted wine charms, sweatshirts, and t-shirts.
