Wu-Tang’s Raekwon Wine Licataa Becomes Part Of Kentucky’s First Black Owned Distributor

Legacy Wine & Spirits Kentucky’s first black-owned premium wine & spirits distribution company brings Wu-Tang’s and Harlem fave Raekwon’s Licataa wine to Kentucky.

Before obtaining their distribution license, the Louisville natives, who have been best friends since meeting in the seventh grade, were brand ambassadors for liquor labels.

This meant they were responsible for ensuring there was a demand for the liquor they represented.

After finally getting the licensing for distributorship in February 2020, Legacy Wine and Spirits was ready to launch — right in the middle of the pandemic.

Their current portfolio includes an exciting array of labels such as the Black-owned whiskey brand Guidance, Black-owned bourbon Majesty, mango vodka, lime tequila and black cherry bourbon by Local Choice, and rapper E-40’s line of Earl Stevens wines and spirits.


Multi-platinum artist Raekwon the Chef has created a new standard in luxury with Licataa sparkling wine. Inspired by his love of Italian culture and cuisine, he sought out Cantine Ceci, a family-owned winery with 80 years of history to produce a rich, bold, sparkling red wine.

Situated in the rolling hills outside Parma, Italy, Cantine Ceci farms in the traditional way, with vineyards planted to catch the sun, carefully monitored throughout the growing season before each grape is harvested by hand at the perfect moment of ripeness.

Raekwon’s Licataa wine is available now at participating stores.
