Top Celebrity Chef Ron Duprat Named Black Elk Wine's Caribbean Ambassador Logo

St. Thomas, Virgin Islands (December 5, 2013) -- Internationally recognized Top Chef and Consulting Food and Beverage Director/Executive Chef at Sugar Bay Resort and Spa, Chef Ron Duprat, is now Brand Ambassador for Black Elk, a wine brand featuring a best-of-the-best lineup of premium 100 percent varietal wines from viticulture regions around the world.

Chef Duprat's ambassadorship is paired with the announcement that USVI Supplies, LLC, a St. Thomas-based provider of wine and food, will be representing the unique Black Elk brand throughout the Caribbean marketplace. Black Elk currently produces Moscato, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Tempranillo - all four of which were medal winners (Gold, Silver and two Bronze, respectively) this past summer at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.

Chef Duprat, a Caribbean native, has also endorsed Black Elk wine for Caribbean Food and Beverage operations. "Black Elk wines are so diverse and unique, making them an ideal complement for many types of cuisines," said Duprat. "The wine is also offered at a great price - not only providing a quality option for professionally-prepared meals, but also home-cooked meals or drinking individually."
