“Women In Wine”

 

The
move is on. Increasingly more and more women are playing an important
role in the wine industry. This truly long overdue evolution and
revolution finds more women entering and becoming acknowledged in the
wine world as winemakers, sommeliers, negotiants, writers and
merchants. From the way they purchase wine to the way they taste and
evaluate it women have made a lasting impression on this once male
dominated industry. It’s a great time to enjoy the fruit of the vine. 
So please join me for this special series that highlights a number of
remarkable and talented women who want to share their wine experiences
with you.
