About Tahiirah Habibi, Founder & Sommelier, The Hue Society:
Growing up in North Philadelphia, Tahiirah Habibi always had a passion for uplifting the community. Her experiences with wine began at college gathering and functions once she was at Penn State University. Upon graduating, she worked at a restaurant during the day and took wine classes at night to begin her journey of becoming a sommelier and pioneer.
In 2012 Tahiirah opened St.Regis, Bal Harbour. She later moved on to leadership positions at other prestigious restaurants including Micheal’s Genuine. Frustrated with the lack of diversity in the industry she believed her skills could bridge the intersection of wine and culture.
In 2017, she launched Hue Society as a safe space for the community to learn, commune and find resources in one place. Tahiirah is the first Black woman to grace the cover of Wine Enthusiasts Magazine as well as being named on the prestigious 40 under 40 list. She has also been featured in Ocean Drive as one of the top 5 female sommeliers, VinePair, Vogue, Upscale Magazine, Wine & Spirits, Wine Spectator and Imbibe Magazine to name a few. Her work is rooted in economic inclusion and resource access to the community for both consumers and business owners.
With the launch of the industry changing C.O.R initiative, Tahiirah continues her passion to reimagine the wine industry and to create an indelible impact through our experiences, assimilation not required.
