Born in Vidalia Georgia, Ericka Blount began pursuing greatness from the start. Her hard work and dedication earned her two full athletic scholarships to Savannah State University for both basketball and volleyball which allowed her to pursue her degrees in biology and chemistry.
Blount chose Houston, Texas to begin expanding her reach. It was in Texas that Blount received her vision for her holistic wine company, which she entitled “Blount Wine Therapy”. Much like the creator, this unique wine is “Georgia born, and Texas made”, and using local agricultural products, she creates Artisan wines and honey-based meads that offer health benefits to enhance the social and emotional experience of each consumer and create safe spaces for healing and therapeutic conversations. Blount Wine Therapy has most recently been awarded Wine of Distinction for 2022 by the #1 US News Ranked Black Wine Club and Festival; Black Vines- Oakland, California.
Her passion to connect and serve people has been made evident time and time again but is most easily seen in how she continues to serve as a mentor to children and young adults across the country. Blount currently serves as a High School Counselor, in which she has 23 years experience. Blount was nominated for 2 consecutive years for Who’s Who Among America’s Teacher Award.
She is a certified Grief Counselor, as well as a Certified Anger Management Specialist. Blount is the Regional Educational & Mental Health Director for the Greater Faith Leadership Conference, and she also has a consulting firm Distinction Management Group partnered with the Center for Innovation at Savannah State University.
