Celebrating Black History: Paula Harrell

Throughout February, KCRA 3 profiled some notable African Americans who had made a major impact in California. Paula Harrell grew up in the Bay Area, and is one of five children. Born to an immigrant mother and a born father in Oklahoma, Tulsa, I learned the importance of working hard early on. From her little boy to her teenage years, Harrell was a performer – at one point she performed with a popular group called Tony, Orlando, and Don. She even did some printed modeling. While he was an undergraduate at UC, Harel tested wine for the first time during his Study Abroad program in Spain. “I kind of fell in love with wine culture before I fell in love with wine,” she said. This experience eventually led to her becoming one of the first African American winemakers and launching her own brand, P. Harrell Wines. But there is no generosity. Harrell purchases grapes and then uses a dedicated crushing facility to produce the product. It took years to put all of the pieces in place, even while currently working as a mortgage broker, Harrell is changing an industry for people of color. | Related | Celebrating Black History: Dr. Tyrone Glover, the first African American ophthalmologist in Sacramento
